Unique Halloween Wedding Ideas

It’s the spookiest time of the year! We’re seeing our Insta filling up with Halloween weddings and gothic inspiration. Nobody does ‘gothic fantasy’ better than Tim Burton, right? This unique halloween wedding shoot was inspired by the brains behind ‘Corpse Bride’, ‘Beetlejuice’ and ‘The Night Before Christmas’. What perfect inspiration for a wedding! Expect gothic elegance, quirky touches and epic wedding styling…

Here’s what Crystal from KANVAS told us about this unique Halloween wedding:


“We wanted to give ‘til death do us part’ a new meaning while keeping things terrifyingly tasteful. Whether you like his dark imaginative characters or simply enjoy the fresh plot behind Tim Burton films, we wanted to capture the dark, eccentric elegance of a Tim Burton bride, with a bit of a Smashing Pumpkins ‘Tonight, Tonight’ 1920’s vibe.”

This gothic wedding styling sure matches the brief! We’re loving the way this shoot uses white and light pink to contrast the black walls and furniture. The pink floral arrangements add a little bit of ‘whimsical’ and the white pumpkins and skulls bring the Halloween vibes. Add in an alternative wedding cake and some hand written wedding stationery and you’re good to go!

We are VERY passionate about wedding food here at UW! We love us a good grazing table and this one looks epic. The way you present your wedding food can add so much style to your day. Sweet treats are often an easy way to keep your guests smiling and these gothic goodies look yum! The magic is in the details in this unique Halloween wedding.

These brides look brilliant – Very Tim Burton-esque! Both of these looks combine classic elegance with a little bit of camp. Bonus points for big hair, and the more accessories the better! With a halloween wedding look, you can go as bold or as subtle as you wish. Like these brides, you could even invent a character around your look! 

With a little imagination, anyone can rock a unique Halloween wedding. It’s all about finding ways to inject your personality into it and making it feel like ‘you’. Happy planning!
