Halloween Romance – Wedding Inspiration in Black, Green & Neutrals
This dark and decadent Halloween inspiration board has to be my favourite yet (if you missed them, you can take a peek at past years here and here) – and there’s not a pumpkin in sight! Because instead of the traditional partners of orange and red for a Halloween palette, I took one of 2016’s biggest trends, greenery, and gave it an elegant gothic twist to create a look that is both magical and sophisticated…..

Infusing it with another trend that is big right now (and expected to only get stronger in 2017), I added a little Victorian romance with candlesticks, calligraphy, and an ornately iced cake. And of course when it came to the venue only a historical country house, with more than an air of mystery, would do.
Much as I created this inspiration board with Halloween in mind, it is just as perfect for the bold bride looking to create some drama on her big day – whatever date it may be. And whilst I absolutely adore when a bride shies away from the traditional with a black wedding dress, this look would definitely not lose any of its drama or romance with a rich ivory (silver or gold) wedding dress instead.
If you love the idea of an All Hallow’s Eve affair but this colour palette isn’t for you, I have lots of other ideas perfect for the season here on the pages of Chic Vintage Brides. Like this moody romantic elopement, this lush floral editorial or for more gothic glamour this Halloween inspiration board is breathtaking!
If it’s the color palette that has stolen your heart but you’re not planning a Halloween celebration, just take a peek at how beautiful these shades can look for a Spring, Summer and Art Deco wedding instead.
Have a happy Halloween!
