I have always loved the idea of a Halloween wedding in fact it would be my dream date if I were to get married again.

craigslistgirl:  It is really, really not a holiday to worship the devil… it comes from several holidays merging into one.  Two Christian holidays, All Hallows Day and All Souls Day- a day to celebrate the saints and a day to pray for the departed respectively.  

It really bugs me because I have come across Christians who hate Halloween because of some association with the devil… perhaps popular culture has played it up to seem that way, but really that it is not what it is about! 


Haha, I love Halloween and felt the need to defend it!

mattadoresme:  When I lived in a more conservative part of the country, the churches would plan “Fall Carnivals” to counteract Halloween. I just thought Halloween was a time for candy and costumes. Some people can be so hard core about it.

I don’t think it’s bad luck, it was a date we looked at when planning our wedding. I didn’t so much mind getting married on Halloween, but when I thought about having our anniversaryy on Halloween every year, I was against it. Think of when you have children, your anniversary will always be about them, and it will always be themed. I’d be sick of halloween after 50 years, you know?

Not at all- our wedding date is 10/29/16.  My fiance is excited to have a “Halloween wedding” and have a masquerade theme. No such thing as a bad luck date as the celebration of your love makes it a lucky day!

I think it’s a fun idea.  I’m a bit biased, though, because we got engaged on Halloween 🙂

SexyLove804:  We ran into the same dilemma. We decided against it because we went with a different venue, but the wedding coordinator of that venue reminded us that a wedding on Halloween holds no more of a meaning than having it on any other day. Plus, vendors tend to offer discounted rates on that day. Don’t let Halloween cloud over your event…it’s just another day. And if you’d like, embrace the day and incorporate it somehow…the wedding coordinator had a bride and groom who set up a massive candy bar/trick or treat station. Good luck.

I got married close to Halloween. All was well and it gave me a reason to wear a black wedding dress (my secret dream hehe).

I don’t think so. But if you have kids, do you really want to spend your anniversary trick-or-treating?

SexyLove804:  No, it is not bad luck. Though I do suspect some guests may decline to spend that night trick or treating with their kids and you should definitely respect that. 

I would also think about things in the long term. If you’re planning on having kids, do you want to spend all of your anniversaries celebrating Halloween with them? Just something to consider.
