Here comes the bride, all dressed in white. Where is the groom? He's... crawling out of his tomb. Not quite how you remember that saying going? Us either, but we want to be at any wedding that uses it. Are you and your significant other into anything and everything spooky? Do you both enjoy those queasy feelings that others get from horror movies? Do you want the wedding that no one else would ever dare to dream of having? Well, we have 6 ideas on how you can have the spookiest wedding ever.
1. Dress in Spooky Wedding Apparel
Bride of Frankenstein Costume – Shop Bloody High Heels – Shop
Zombie Groom Costume – Shop
For the Bride: Take a stroll down the aisle in one of the most iconic wedding dresses in horror history: The Bride of Frankenstein dress. Take the look one step further by adding some bloody white heels.
For the Groom: We've all heard the jokes that a wedding is the groom's funeral, but what if he's already dead? ...or should we say undead? Stumble your way into your future as a ghoulish zombie groom.
2. Have a Bouquet of Dead Flowers
Velvet Rose Bouquet – Shop Mercury Glass Skeleton Handprint Bottle – Shop
Black Glittered Twig Spray – Shop
No wedding is complete without flowers. They really are the perfect accessory for the bride and her party. Heads will turn when this gorgeous velvet rose bouquet glides by. It also works perfectly as a centerpiece for your dinner tables. Let's face it, no one likes an empty table. Place these velvet bouquets in a skeleton themed mercury glass bottle and throw in some black glitter sprayed twigs to really up the elegant eeriness.
3. Get Creative with Your Wedding Cake
Other than the bride and groom, the next most photographed thing at any wedding is the cake. Therefore, it's not only important that it tastes great (which is really, really important), but it needs to look great, as well. What is more breathtakingly gruesome than a cake that is dripping with blood? There are so many options out there; but we are just going to show you with one of our favorites. (Hint: Pinterest has more cake inspiration pictures than you can imagine.)
4. Add Some Deadly Decorations
Bloody Footprints Runner – Shop Spider Web and Bat Table Topper – Shop
Let's be honest, decorations can be one of the most fun parts of planning any event. Whether it's for the ceremony itself or for the dinner afterwards, we've got you covered. Start off by walking down the aisle not on a red carpet, but on a white one. Did we forget to mention that the last person to walk down it lost a large amount of blood? Your creepy wedding needs to have the mood set for your guests, and this floor runner will do the trick. Once inside, you have plenty places to decorate - like the tables! Have your tables looking their best with our elegant spider web and bat table topper.
