The decals are a bit childrens birthday party like for me.

I like the butterflies and the draping ideas. But seriously no one but the bride really cares about the decor of the venue. Guests will be more interested in the food and drinks and celebrating the couple.

I really like them.. but as someone who LOVES tim burton & the nightmare before christmas, it would be super confusing to have it on the walls for an addams family themed wedding.

I’m not into the wall decals but I like the draping and butterflies!

I like them. Maybe you can do the decals for a shower or engagement party and then the bats for the wedding? The decals are fine, but I think the bats are more elegant and beautiful for a wedding.

I think the draping is best. Then you add little hints everywhere like the paper bats, black calia lillies, black macaroons for dessert or favours etc. I reckon that when having a theme like this for a wedding the subtle approach is better if you don’t want it to head into costume/children’s party territory. Lots of small things that when combined clear state the theme but are not overpowering.

I think these napkins/plates are pretty cool. Maybe you could find something like this?

for the addams family in us all.


And you have to serve these. It is called a smoking zombie

Smoking Zombie – SKYY Vodka, Seagram’s gin, BACARDI Rum, triple sec and sour mix with dry ice for a smoky effect, topped with a float of Chambord Liqueur

Drapping, bats and try so well placed accent lights. I work at a resort and accent lights in many colors can change the atmosphere from elegant to eerie to fun party to dance club!!!

@laura.batty:  Tell me about it. We are finally getting air con installed on Wednesday. These rolling heat waves are killing me.

I am having a frozen margarita as we speak and waiting for the pizza to arrive. I haven’t cooked a meal for days. Probably why I was so drawn to the smoking zombie.

I think the wall stickers are too children’s party and nowhere near as elegant as the other things you’ve posted – like your gorgeous dress! I think draping would be best for gothic elegance, but I also like the butterflies and skull.

@laura.batty:  I was looking at cakes and was reminded of your thread when I stumbled across this little beauty:
