Happy Halloween Brides Up North.  This post comes to your from under the duvet, where I’ll be hiding until the undead stop walking the Earth and all the trick or treaters have gone home.  In the meantime, I’ll hand you over to our regular guest blogger Katy of What Katy Did Next, who has been brave enough to face the day head on – and give it her own beautiful twist.  Enjoy.

Katy says: Happy Halloween! I couldn’t believe my luck when this week’s Wednesday wedding inspiration landed on the most bewitching day of the year! Then it became a case of should I go all out spooky Halloween with black lace galore and cobwebs? I’m sure you’ll agree the board is anything but. Whilst I love the time of year and the Halloween spirit, I’m not a huge fan of tying the theme into your wedding in a big way. There is tons of amazing inspiration for tasteful and elegant Gothic Weddings, but I decided to opt for something a little different – and in a largely selfish way I put together the wedding that I would want if my date was 31st October…

.
With a large nod to the turning of the leaves I’ve used a beautiful palette of burnt orange, pumpkin amber, gold, ivory and aqua. An unusual mix but the clash of pastel versus bold gels in an amazing way. I’m not sure many brides would be daring enough to feature orange in their wedding dress but the delicate dip dyed hem of the bridal gown is gorgeous. Adding those beautiful auburn heels gives the ensemble a fashionable ombre look. With the high neckline of the dress I’ve opted for statement earrings in gold and aqua shades.

.
Rather than decorate with bright pumpkins have a DIY day with your friends and family and paint your pumpkins in shades to match your colour themes – much less mess than carving and a chance for you and your groom to put your own stamp on the decor. I also carried the pale pumpkin theme on to the seating arrangements and kept the floral arrangements pale too. Another beautiful DIY decoration are the painted leaf bunting, which I might try out myself to decorate at home.

.
Definitely more treat than trick – I hope you like it!

Remember: the plan is to share a new inspiration board in this time slot every other week, either compiled by myself, regular guest blogger Katy or YOU: get in touch with your own ideas and inspiration boards! We’ll be discussing our inspirations behind the images too so it’s simply going to be a whole load of lovely.

.

If you are a little less arty but in need of inspiration and still want to play along, we will also be taking requests for colour schemes and themes and making bespoke boards for my readers. Please contact me to suggest a theme or colour scheme.
