Is A Halloween Wedding A Good Idea
This year Halloween is different from any other. Hopefully you’re looking to the future. Something like 2021 and beyond.
Guidelines for children and parents celebrating Halloween in Chicago were recently announced.
Trick-or-treating will be allowed, but with some restrictions, according to Mayor Lori Lightfoot. And if you’re having a Wedding on Halloween this year, some of those restrictions apply to gatherings as well.
Whether you’re celebrating door-to-door or in a limited capacity Wedding Reception. This will be a “Halloween” to remember (or hope to forget).
This year Halloween is trying to be as normal as abnormal will allow. And maybe that’s just right for this kind of holiday.
Some vendors are eager to get back to work. Back in normal times, for DJs Halloween could be a very high demand date.
It’s true Halloween is not a “major” holiday, There’s usually not the kind of bustling travel as with other dates coming up (think Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years). But for 2020 that’s all been changed.
Still it’s a holiday with all its traditions. It has the flair of all the Autumn colors, with the added mystique of All Hallows Eve.
This makes for some bold statements. Couples looking for non-traditional will choose this date. Also those who have a history together prior to their engagement around this date.
Capitalizing on the scary part of Halloween, can make it adventurous.
Choosing a venue that has the elegant yet moody appeal will create a rich ambience.
What NOT To Do
When you’re thinking: Is A Halloween Wedding A Good Idea? There are a few other things to consider.
Not everyone likes Halloween. If you’re thinking of your guests and imaging they won’t. Well that’s certainly a place to see if anyone will enjoy themselves with this theme.
After all it is a little dark. But you can make it classy while still enjoying some spookiness.
The key is not to go overboard. Having your groom walk on as a 12 foot dragon might be a bit over the top.
In the end you might pick Halloween week to be your wedding day. Make it yours and celebrate the memories for years to come.
