The majority of weddings typically take place during the Spring because of the warmer weather and the abundance of blooming flowers. Spring also represents new beginnings, which makes it the perfect season to begin your new life with your significant other. However, Autumn weddings can have just as much appeal to a bride. If you’re one of those brides who prefers cloudy skies to the sun, bright fall leaves to blooming tulips and freesia, and pumpkin patches to ponds then hold onto your veil. We’re busting some myths about Halloween weddings.
Myth: Halloween weddings are bad luck because Halloween celebrates Death
Truth: The holiday itself does not celebrate Death. Halloween, in correlation to the pagan holiday Samhain, celebrates the end of the harvest season and although there is the belief that the night of Halloween is when the veil between this world and the next is the thinnest, Halloween is meant to be a celebration of life.
Myth: Halloween weddings are gloomy
Truth: Autumn is a remarkably colorful season, which makes it perfect for wedding photos. Party tent rentals, proper party equipment, a dance floor rental, and table rentals can make everything perfect for a backyard party after the wedding ceremony has finished. Being surrounded by colorful trees while in a white (or black!) dress will only make the bride stand out more. And having the guests dress in costumes will bring anything but gloominess to the party!
Myth: If you’ve seen one Halloween-themed wedding, you’ve seen them all
Truth: Halloween-themed weddings change depending on the taste of the wedding couple. Some brides prefer the subtle Halloween look with hints of Victorian flare and Masquerade ball masks. Other brides prefer the colorful, kid-friendly Halloween look with bright purples, oranges, whites, and blacks. Halloween-themed weddings are like any other wedding: completely customizable.
This is true even when night falls on your wedding celebration. You can give your party tent rentals a more romantic look by illuminating the garden, terrace, or outdoor area with LED Outdoor and Indoor collections. Or, for a darker look, utilize candlelight.
Myth: Your wedding won’t be beautiful
Truth: Your wedding will be gorgeous! Pick and choose what you like best about the Halloween holiday and use it in your ceremony how you see fit. Even if you want the theme in your wedding, but don’t want it during the ceremony, you can easily have a traditional ceremony inside. Use your after party for the Halloween-theme if you like it better that way and optimize outdoor space with party tent rentals to get a great view of the Autumn trees.
Whatever you choose to do, your Halloween-themed wedding will be a spooktacular event. Make it unique and make it your own to make your special day your day.
