Halloween Wedding - Invitation Wording

You're getting married on the spookiest day of the year. Your wedding invitations should reflect your quirky choice! You have a lot of freedom and creativity at your disposal when wording Halloween wedding invitations, so don't limit yourself. A Halloween wedding will be memorable for all involved when you start with the right invites.

If guests are allowed to attend in costume, you may want to specify what's appropriate vs. what's not if your venue is formal and/or religious. Even the most casual Halloween wedding invitation needs to include all important information for guests, such as time and location.

A few things to consider:

  • If your wedding has a theme, note that on the invitation. You can do this directly in a separate note, as well as crafting your words to reflect your theme.
  • Let your invitations reflect the uniqueness of your wedding, as this isn't the typical ceremony. Use all of your creativity in coming up with appropriate wording.
  • If you want guests to attend in costume, it's considerate to include information on websites or local stores that can help them find costumes before the event.

Here are some specific examples to get your creative juices flowing.

To make these options fit your needs, just change the names, dates and location information. For additional help on creating your wedding invitation wording, be sure to look for the "Make It Yours" information blocks for additional tips.
