Y’all, I started daydreaming about this wedding earlier in the week and couldn’t get it out of my head. I’ve never considered myself a creative person–quite the opposite, actually–but I do have these moments when the wheels start turning. And then I steal a bunch of other people’s ideas and mash them all together. At any rate, if you love Halloween, or if your high school goth phase never did totally disappear, this wedding is for you. Here in the South, we love old-fashioned elegance; this wedding takes a classic black and white color palette and elegant estate backdrop and adds just a touch of quirky (can you say black wedding dress and vampire fangs?). Without further ado, good friends, let’s kick this wedding off with classic black and white invites and a sneak peak of our bridal party getting ready:
Bridesmaids in black tulle…
…with these incredibly stunning/sexy black lace gloves.
The gentlemen. White dinner jacket is always an elegant choice!
Since late October can still be fairly warm here in the Carolinas, our ceremony is going to take place outside. Let’s take a peek at the aisle decor:
The newlyweds. That dress!! That black fascinator!!
Now, for the reception…guests are greeted with their escort cards when they arrive in the ballroom.
I adore this elaborate cake for our elegant fete. The ruffles are reminiscent of the wonderfully textured layers in the bride’s dress.
Are you digging this Halloween inspiration, belles and beaus? Would you get married on a holiday? Comment, comment, comment!
