More and more it feels like “wedding season” is broadening into late fall. It’s a great idea: Fall has superior weather, an amazing color palette, and of course, CIDER! And nothing says, “‘Til death do us part” better than a Halloween wedding. To complete the theme, every corpse bride needs a ghastly gown of haunting proportions. Some brides go for noire-on-noire, while others embrace the quirky. Throw in a couple pumpkin centerpieces and some sugar skulls and you’re good to go! So grab your boo, because these spooky dresses are simply bewitching! (Note: all of the candids came from real Halloweddings!)

A wedding on October 31st is the perfect excuse to wear black mesh.

Cady Heron really had that whole “ex-wife” costume down! To all the Halloween brides this October, we salute you. Because, all month the answer to “what are you going to be for Halloween?” will be “married.”
