Halloween is almost here and aside from trick or treating and other happenings, Halloween weddings will also take centre stage. Not as popular as the other wedding seasons like spring or summer, Halloween has a niche market of bold couples who are into the spooky side of life. This type of wedding theme is all about gothic details, moody ambience, and spine-chilling romance.
One of the major elements of a Halloween wedding is the entourage attire. It makes the wedding unique and gives the couple the freedom to make a daring fashion statement and eye-catching visuals. The secret is to get creative and think of out-of-the-box ideas that will leave the guests’ jaws hanging.
How to choose the correct Halloween bridesmaid dress?
There are a couple of ways how to go about with the Halloween wedding attire. One is to go all-out with the theme and dress the whole wedding party in gothic costumes and frocks – that means over-the-top bridesmaid dresses together with moody makeup and hairstyles. Another approach is to do it subtly by hinting at the Halloween holiday through fabric colours, dress silhouettes, and accessories.
If you’re having a gothic-themed wedding the most ideal shades to use are those in the deeper and darker spectrum like pitch black, crimson red, dark green, or deep purple. If you’re leaning towards the Halloween holiday itself, then you can opt for tones reminiscent of autumn like browns, oranges, and rust. As for the fabric to use, velvet is the most ideal as it is both fashionable and functional. The heavy material will keep the wearer warm during the cool weather. If you want something light, you can select more ethereal and flowy fabrics like tulle, lace, or chiffon for a hauntingly beautiful appeal.
Shopping tip: The great thing about shopping for the perfect outfit is that there are plenty of online boutiques like CICINIA where you can buy the perfect Halloween bridesmaid dress.
