LOVE the pictures.  I grew up in the mid-west but always wanted a Halloween wedding (maybe not on the actual holiday but close enough).  I wanted a Masquarade theme and pass out masks as favors for people to wear.  Wear a big poufy victorian style dress….sigh.

But when searching venues I fell in love with a venue (one because I could have a beautiful outdoor wedding, two because it would fit all our guests, three because it was reasonable priced).  Well this venue doesn’t do Oct weddings AT ALL because they have a haunted house all month long 🙁 so there went my dream of having a masquarade wedding.

But I am ok with changing my theme a little bit. Still fun to see the ideas that others have with the Masquarade though!

I did a masquerade wedding in the middle of January because masquerades are awesome and everyone loves a chance to dress up.  Go for it!

As for the cake toppers, OP, I’ve seen it done with just a normal mask on top, not something made out of fondant/icing/cake.  If you did that, I can’t imagine it would be too expensive.

@shadowblind:  Are you crafty at all?  I think you might be surprised how easy it is to make your own FANTASTIC masks.  We made about 150 to hand out at our wedding, and they all looked so much better than the cheap ones I found elsewhere.  It is also possible to find decent pre-made masks for under $30.

Unfortunately, I can’t offer any advice with the edible masks.

@shadowblind:  I think you could fairly easily attach a couple of wires to it and then attach the wires to a stake you could stab into the cake just like on this one:

We wanted to have a masquerade wedding but we ended up changing our mind last minute… this was the mask I was planning to wear but it would make a beautiful cake topper:

Maybe I can change my theme to a Cinderella….then I can use my pumpkins AND have masks lol.  Except then I’d need to change my dress….again lol.  Oh Fiance will LOVE that.
