I'm getting married the 30th of October, this year. Our wedding theme is Halloween! Anything goes as long as it is halloween. Our guests are being asked to wear costumes, which 95% of our guests love the idea! Even my grandmother is dressing up.

Well we are trying to work on the name place cards/things, we want something halloweenish but it also has to be affordable and doable, we will need to make between 60 to 80.

I always find really cool things, but most stuff is really only meant for between 10 to 20 people so cost is a huge factor for us.

I'm open to any ideas! we already have our centerpieces, a black vase with red roses, and white roses sprayed with blood. the head table we got lemax halloween pieces for 60-75% off at AC Moore!

There was another Halloween wedding poster in the last couple weeks, and I (and others!) replied to her thread - check it out here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319633.0

How about mini luminaries for name place cards?  It would totally rock if each one had a burning tealight candle in it, but that might be a logistical and fire safety challenge. Wink

It's just an idea, but if you took some silver glitter tulle and cut it to look like spider webs, then put it over a black table cloth, it would be awesome table decoration. You could also stencil webs on the corners of simple place cards if you wanted to keep with the theme. It would be both elegant and spooky at the same time.
Good luck, and congratulations. I hope you guys have fun.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

so, Pottery barn had these metal vampire teeth place card holders. expensive i know. you could get some cheap ones (oriental trading company). to keep them in place you could insert wire in the back of them or hot glue them onto something, like a card stock. insert name card in the teeth to look like the teeth are biting down on the card.  and maybe drip some "blood" along the side of the name cards for affect.
hope this helps.
can't wait for the pics
