Hallowe'en Nuptials

I don't know about most of you, but when I got married some
15 years ago, I wasn't even aware of how cool my wedding could have been.
I opted for the traditional(ish) wedding, with a white(ish) dress,
normal cake and the only thing we did do different was have our
ceremony over looking Lake Tahoe from a cliff. There was a boat
in the water during our vows that kept yelling, "Jump!". Funny.

Anyhoo, if I could do it all over again I would! I'd still pick the same guy (even if
he doesn't share my love of the macabre or Hallowe'en - I know, I know),
but a totally different ceremony, cake, and dress!

Here is what I'm talking about....  


So very beautiful and elegant.


Now I could probably sneak these little lovelies in underneath
that gorgeous gown.



I like the idea of showing the bridesmaids in their
true form. Really, it's usually the truth.


Every wedding needs an ice sculpture!!


And a cake or two...


It totally goes with the dress!


I like the bright colors and the awesome spider webbed
candelabras at every table. 


If only I knew then, what I know now...
I'd still be paying for that wedding!!

I'm in the same boat as you Glo, when I suggested wearing black my Mum told me in a disdainful tone "You are the Bride, you CAN NOT wear black!" then her head started spinning around and exploded, well almost LOL If I could have my time again I would go for all the things in those pictures :)

GORGEOUS STUFF! LOL I always wanted to get married on Halloween and have a costume party for a reception... didn't quite work out, though. Maybe for my 25th anniversary or something.... LOL

Perhaps we should consider renewing our vows. LOVE this and my inlaws would have a heart attack! LOL (okay, so I wouldn't invite them). xxD

I'm so with you on this :) We got married at a registry office(year after miners strike, had to cancel church do cos of said strike), but we got to say our vows in church when a lovely vicar held a marriage blessing for the village we lived in. Now I want to have a Hand fasting ceremony...no limits on outfits for that one :D XXX
