Does this look cohesive to you?

Everything but the white pumpkin is cohesive. The bright modern colors look awkward next to the off white and traditional damask pattern on the pumpkin. Love the bright happy colors!

I agree with PP. If you painted the white and orange pumpkins cool colors (maybe dark colors with glitter) I think they would be more cohesive.

Are you going to dye your crinoline? I really wanted to but I had it sewn into my dress before I thought the plan through 🙁

Another voice saying it looks awesome, but the white pumpkin needs some dazzle. I’d be looking up sugar skulls and day of the dead stuff for inspiration about halloweeny colorful things – it sounds like exactly what you need.

Love your ideas! Can I throw a couple more at you?  I immediately thought Día de los Muertos! Bright, colorful, Halloween-y without being dark or morbid. Colorful cacti in little pots for favors. Colorful potted mums instead of cut flowers, colorful papel picado bunting! You could have a lot of fun with it.

@HonoraryNerd:  I think I would be throwing a bit more orange and purple in there, only because you have the jack-o-lantern decorations (if they are staying orange?). I think it would tie the look together a little better… maybe add a couple of orange flowers in your bouquet?

I’m sorry but I’m more of a “colour” person – can’t suggest any more on patterns or styles 😛

@HonoraryNerd:  i don’t really think that colour swatch screams halloween (it’s more like easter) but if you are just focusing on those colours and pumpkins, ok.   if you want to incorporate more “typical” (orange and black) halloween decor, along with those colours, i think your guests’ eyes will have a hard time knowing where to focus. 

just remember that colours, decor and themes are about complimenting not conflicting.  focus on one main element or component and then work around that without losing sight of what the focus is supposed to be.  you don’t want your wedding to look like a fun house.

what is the main focus for your wedding?  what is/are the main colours?

@HonoraryNerd:  when you said halloween wedding, that was my first thought.

with that time of year, those colours and your fi liking cacti, the first thing i thought of was day of the dead.
