You’re not alone. I love your theme. If you haven’t joined us on offbeatbride.com yet I highly recommend it. 

I’ve seen some really beautiful black candelabras, very elegant. 

What color scheme are you thinking?

@nearly-mrs-R:  I would say to stick to just a few elements. You don’t want it to be campy or over the top. I also suggest offbeat bride!

@nearly-mrs-R:  How cool is this?


I just saw this cake topper on google images and looks like it might fit your theme!





Maybe these images will give you some inspiration

this isn’t my thing at all but I LOVE the laquered black with the blood red roses.  It’s amazing!

We’re using Sugar skulls, but you could always swap in a reg skull.  Here’s some of what we’re doing…


Diy invites





groomsmen suit and tie…can be tucked in for no-skull pics


sweetheart table decor


toasting flutes



cake toppers


oot baskets with…



mock centerpieces



sideawys but these are our engraved wine glass favors


one of our e-pics…




most of our wedding will be fairly traditional…it’s more in the details for us.  I’ll also be switching into a black reception dress with a beautiful short black veil 🙂

@nearly-mrs-R:  Thanks!  FI designed ours in adobe illustrator.  I think it really led to him feeling involved…when everything is using something he designed 🙂

Well one thing i love about your theme is that you can even make skulls look classy. I would just be careful not to let it fall to far into the halloween theme. i would suggest maybe throw a little silver in with your color. 😀

I love this idea!  I wanted to do a theme like this originally, but my husband said no.  Here’s the pic that inspired me (Lovers of Valdaro)
