Rustic Goth Wedding by Candlelight – Halloween Wedding Ideas

There is something so intriguing about themed weddings. The sky is the limit of opportunity when it comes to themed wedding concepts. I really believe a well done, alternative themed wedding, can truely set the tone for a marriage. I say this for this reason: for the couple that really knows themselves and each other, and are in tune enough to break away from the standard white-dress mold and do something bold, develop an extra layer of strength and bonding during the process. As stressful as it is to plan a “traditional” wedding, creating a perfectly themed wedding can be exponentially harder. If you can get through that, you are off to a good start.

And for the couple that is up for the challenge, I present to you this rustic goth wedding by candlelight. I see this as an ideal theme for a wedding around Halloween, or for any evening or dusk timed wedding in a rural area year round. It’s all about playing up the dark of the night!

Here’s what I had in mind:

Crystals and Pearls: Seaside – Lux Wedding Inspiration

Can beach wedding be luxurious?

Oh yes, yes they can.

This week’s wedding idea board is not your ordinary seaside wedding. Oh no. This is glam to the max! Dripping pearls, flowy white silk, and dazzling crystals are the critical components necessary for this seaside wedding inspiration.

I’m thinking a late afternoon wedding ceremony would be perfect for catching all of the available sunshine for optimal sparkles, plus making for some fantastic photos. You can never go wrong with wedding photos on the beach!

Eggplant Purple and Flowers Wedding Ideas

I feel pretty, oh so pretty…….

Pretty would be the one word description to explain the direction I was going in when putting this design board together for you. I didn’t want anything TOO girlie, but I still wanted the wedding to be elegant with a light touch of femininity with all of the flowers.

Personally, I really love that guys are getting out of the “black, blue white and grey” color mentality for their wardrobes and trying something new with colors, but that is a whole other topic!

For this particular wedding, I envision it most likely happening in an enchanted garden, late summer or early fall. Maybe with some twinkle lights… Yeah, definitely add some twinkle lights. Twinkle lights make everything better!
