I’m planning our wedding on Halloween 09. I’m searching for ideas, things to buy so I need your help PLEASEEEEE….
The color theme is orange, brown, black and white. I’m not going with the scary/ghost wedding, but the masquerade ball ("Phantom of the Opera") with autumn touch (pumpkins, fall leaves).
Please help with any ideas, pictures, or if you have anything from your wedding for sale, please email me at bibieluv at hotmail dot com.
Thank you BEES!!! 🙂

Martha Stewart has a cool online tutorial for glitter pumpkins. If its a glam-masquerade ball, these would be very cool. We make them every fall. I mean long story short, you use white paint to paint a pumpkin (usually small ones) and cover it in glitter. http://www.marthastewart.com/article/glittered-pumpkins
The photos on that site dont do them justice, they are beautiful (and this comes from me, who hates all things glittery and sparkly…except my E Ring )

OMG, can I PLEASE be invited?! =D Of course I’m not serious, but I absolutely LOVE the Phantom of the Opera! (I’m a phan! LOL. No, actually, I’m a dork.)
Definitely request that people come dressed for the occasion (ball gowns, suits/tuxes) on the invite. Just put "black tie attire requested" at the bottom of the invite. Another really cool thing you could do would be to have a make-your-own mask table at the reception — it could double as a favour! You’d need either pre-formed masks, or a template and some card stock, sticks/dowels, ribbon, feathers, sequins, glue, scissors, Sharpies (or, if you’re having kids, magic markers), lace/velvet/satin fabric scraps, glitter, etc.
Instead of a veil, you and your groom could wear masks at the ceremony, and "un-mask" each other. =) Very romantic, and cool!
For the cake, a square or topsy turvy cake would probably look cool…. Definitely try to stick some feathers in with your bouquet! (I’m picturing maple leaves, ostrich feathers, and deep burgundy roses if you’re okay with a red brown.)

Thanks a lot! You guys are awesome 🙂
* Kelly— Thanks! I’ll try to make them in advance. Not very good at carving pumpkins, so this is wonderful idea. Thanks again!
* Jen— Hehehe… I’m not very good at posting. This is my 2nd post to be exact so after posting, I saw it was in the Photography and don’t want to double post, so…
I had my dress ordered with Enzoani in the Ivory color (very fall theme). Thinking aout doing the mask for our guests and have them at the entrance table (still working on it). I saw oriental trading has some masks with decent price, but they seem to be too scary for me. I like elegant, not scary so I’m still searching.
I asked to have this cake made for the wedding from one of my favorite vendors already. Check out the pics

Love that cake! It could be so very pretty in your wedding colors! Best of luck!
I found this link on the knot that has some "real" halloween wedding ideas:

I would do lots and lots of pillar candles at all different heights.
I don’t know a fancy way to incorporate them, but it would be cool to use baby gourds and small orange and white pumpkins. maybe tie escort cards with a rich brown ribbon around them.
