If you shoot at mimes, should you use a silencer?

My brother and sister-in0law got married on Halloween. They did go the costume route (He was Freddy Kruger, cause she loves horror movies and she was Siouxsie Soux, cause Siouxsie and the Banshees is his favorite band). No help there, I know...BUT their flower arrangements/bouquet/centerpieces blew me away.

Basically, a friend worked as a florist so they were her gift to them. Anyway, yes there were pumpkins, but the flowers were in deep fall (and yes, Halloween-y) colors, with reds and oranges and purples and greens and then black feathers mixed in. The same colors/flowers/feathers were worked into a bower the served as the altar with pumpkins as vases of the same mix at either side with candles etc.

I'll scrounge up some pictures when I get home tonight to show you. 


I love the idea of reds, oranges, purples, and black. That sounds fabulous!!

I saw this topic and knew I had the authoritative answer right away!  Wink  I was married last October 22nd, and we embraced the fall, autumnal, harvest, outdoorsy, yet not "country" nor "hallowe'en" thing.  I will give you link to my wedding photos (so gorgeous -- our photog. rocked!) and also some bulleted ideas:

www.zebravisual.com/gaw

our colors: orange, deep red, aubergine, gold/golden yellow.
our flowers: multi-colored (oranges, reds) sunflowers
our centerpieces: pumpkins carved by my girlfriends 2 nights before the wedding
Also, for decoration, some indian corn, some gourds.  we didn't do hay, for fear of "country". 
tablecloth overlays: deep red, aubergine, and orange. 
my maid of honor's/sister's dress: nantucket red edged in deep red velvet

Hope this helps!

Okay.  I can't fix the link b/c it's just gone...but I've begun to upload all our pics to photobucket.  It's slow-going, b/c I think Photobucket hates my computer, but you can browse what's up there and get a "feel" for it until I get more specific pics up.

I'll get more up soon.  Sorry I can't be more helpful!

I have a friend who did her reception (they didn't have an actual wedding ceremony) with a bit of Halloween flair to it.  They did a masquerade (sp?) ball type theme where all the adults were still dressed up but made elaborate masks and such.  The bride placed  small pumpkins on the tables and fall colored flowers everywhere.  The kids dressed up in actual Halloween costumes and different candies were at each table and they went trick-or-treating from table to table.  I think the masquerade adds a bit of elegance with out being too over the top.  Hope this helps!
Ahhh I love that idea! When I was growing up, we weren't allowed to trick or treat, or have anything to do with Halloween really, so I didn't get to do that whole costume thing. I love dressing up, and I think that would be a beautiful, classy way to do the Halloween themed way. Unfortunately for me, I doubt my guests would be willing to dress up :/

Orange and black doesn't have to look halloweenish! I was married just this past August and my colors were orange, black and green. My centerpieces were all bamboo and the napkins were a nice sand color..

I have photos, if you'd like some ideas!

My bridesmaids wore black, with a nice green satin scarf, and they each had an orange gerbera daisy. I thought they looked beautiful.

I too am in the VERY early stages of a Halloween theme wedding planning. I just got engaged on Halloween a few days ago! And we live in Salem, Massachusetts, "Witch City USA". We're looking to have the wedding next October. I definately want the all out Halloween thing! I have to pick the perfect costume to wear, too.
Things I know for sure so far- We want these rings http://www.zales.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2501075&cp=&fbn=Metal+Type%7CTitanium&f=PAD%2FMetal+Type%2FTitanium&fbc=1&kw=wedding+bands&parentPage=search&searchId=19585008423
We don't want a big ceremony or attendants. We were joking the wedding should be like in Space Balls (Do you? Yes. Do you? Yes. Okay, you're married. Kiss the bride.) We want the event to be more like a big fun costume party.
I loved the Gorey-style imagery for invites mentioned early in the thread! Any other suggestions?
