@mrshahn2b:  I think it sounds great fun – I’d like to receive an invitation to a wedding like that! Also I think you’ve approached the ‘theme’ with class.

Masquerade could be really great if done elegantly – maybe phrase it as ‘those who come masked’ rather than ‘in costume’, as it will keep more of a focus on the celebration (and you!!), and prevent anyone thinking they can use the term costume loosely and roll up in ‘sexy cat’ outfit or similar.

I like the idea but I would focus on making sure you get masks and not costumes.  Costumes can make things tacky very quickly depending on the guest list.   I went to a very successul masquerafe this halloween that could have easily been a wonderful wedding.   I’d make sure the masks don’t come out until the reception however.

@mrshahn2b:  You’re only thinking it’s overdone because you’re here on Weddingbee and there are people around having similarly themed weddings. What will your guests know? They’re not on here or on Pinterest or looking up current wedding trends. And even if they are, who cares! It’s your and your fiance’s big day, do whatever the hell you want! 🙂

I think that sounds really fun.  Maybe in the wedding blog world there are a lot of Halloween weddings, but I’ve never been to one or known anyone who had one in real life.  
It could be really cool, especially since your wedding is actually on the 31st!  I’m seeing lots of candles in copper mercury glass to really create a spooky but elegant vibe!

The masquerade theme sounds fun, and I think it will be very tasteful for a wedding if you focus on having your guests wear masks, rather than dress up in costume. Maybe you could buy some inexpensive masks to have at the reception for people who don’t bring one.

I do feel like there are too many strong colors.. I would choose 3 bold colors max, and use a base color [white, black, or ivory].

I think your theme sounds amazing.. I mean, it’s not anything new, but it sounds like tons of fun!
