Having a Halloween Wedding
No longer is a Spring wedding the mainstay for having a wedding ceremony. Modern couples are now choosing a variation of dates and themes to celebrate their big day. One time of year that is gaining more popularity is that of the end of October where the Halloween holiday falls.
Many couples are picking Halloween themed weddings as a way to break from tradition and add some fun into their wedding ceremony. Some modern Halloween weddings even require that guests attend the event in costume, making way for an interesting collection of wedding day photos and giving the guests a fun way to participate in the celebration even if they are not a direct part of the wedding party.
The key to pulling a Halloween themed wedding together begins by setting the tone with the right invitation. Having a good set of halloween wedding invitations to send out can give those invited an idea of what colors to wear and what they can expect when attending your Halloween themed wedding ceremony. Here we are going to take a look at three distinct and free Halloween themed wedding invitation templates that you can use to set the tone for the big event.
