This is completely made of awesome. The Midnight in the Garden of Evil blog has some great photos of a wedding with a Haunted Mansion theme.
There are all kinds of clever details–like hitch-hiking ghosts place cards–and most of the decor was hand-made. I’m immensely impressed with how much of the mansion’s flavor they managed to capture with things like the spiderwebbed-candelabra centerpieces, not to mention brilliant little touches like custom-printed M&Ms with an HM wallpaper motif.
They apparently also had a bit of luck in the form of a friend who loaned them a couple of props that he had sculpted for use in his home haunt. That might actually be a great project for a wedding that’s a year or two off: Create custom props for use at the wedding, then use them for Halloween decor afterward.
Go take a look at the photos! They’re fantastic inspiration.
Bonus Link: Check out the Carnivale de Mystique on the same blog. It was a local nursery’s Halloween theme, but there are some great ideas for wedding decor.
