As Halloween draws nearer, many couples are getting into the holiday spirit in any way they can. Whether planning festive parties, clever costumes, or even Halloween-inspired weddings, brides, grooms, and newlyweds can find inspiration everywhere. Those pairs wanting to evoke an "All Hallows' Eve" feel on their big day can easily do so with haunting décor pieces, spooky fashion and jewelry choices, and even registry items. The best part? The elements can be as understated or over-the-top as you'd like.
Couples desiring a more subtle play on this spooky day may want to incorporate pumpkins into their tablescape, while those hoping to scare some of their loved ones will choose shimmering crystal skull décor pieces. Even if you and your own spouse-to-be aren't crazy about this holiday, chances are, you know a couple that adore it. Consider gifting the Halloween-loving duo with a matte black pumpkin-shaped cooking dish or a fragrant candle displayed in a decorative box that can be pulled out each year in time for fall!
