Halloween is creeping around the corner, so you better be prepared! Falling smack dab in the middle of autumn, October 31 is a popular wedding date with a certain connotation. While your Halloween wedding may not be all witches and ghosts, there are a few subtly spooky elements you can add to your day without sacrificing style or elegance. The 17 Halloween wedding ideas are a real treat!

1. Black goblets make a big impact in an otherwise classic table setting.

3. Try a little leather! Leather accents on black bridesmaids dresses are impossibly sleek. A dark lip color is the perfect styling here!

9. Add a little mystery with masquerade masks at each place setting. Masks can also be a playful way to dress up without getting guests into costume.

15. Don’t let an orange and black color scheme take over your Halloween wedding! Coral, black, and gold is a much more elegant alternative.
