    pumpkin centerpieces:  pumpkins filled with flowers would be really pretty.Use fall colors.  Instead of flower petals, spread fall colored leaves around your CP.Have jack-o-lantern cookies for favors.  Or have little trick or treat bags filled with candy for favors.Put candy corn on decorative dishes on the tables.Have a candy buffet and put the candy in Halloween bowls or ceramic pumpkins, and have trick or treat goodie bags for guests to fill out.Do the same, but have it be a cookie buffet.Use mini-pumpkins or gourds for your place cards:  you could write the guests names and table numbers on them with a sharpie, or tie them to the handle with a piece of raffia or yarn.Get a large ceramic pumpkin and have people sign that instead of a traditional guestbook.Have your BMs have mini-pumpkins worked into their bouquets of fall colored flowers.Use orange as one of your colors in your color scheme.
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    You could do tons of jack-o-lanterns, but carve them with things like "love," or hearts, or other wedding-y pretty things rather than scary faces. I think Martha Stewart has done a few jack-o-lanterns as wedding centerpieces and the carvings were lace patterns. They were really pretty!

    im having a halloween wedding, but keeping it traditional.  my favors will be caramel apples and centerpieces will be fall leaves.  you could see if your reception hall will serve pumpkin soup instead of a traditional pasta too.  or use mini pumpkins as the escort/place cards.

    Have you checked out the fall board? Lots of creativity there. Have a table setup with your favorite Halloween candy in jars that people can grab a piece or handful as they wish. Be aware this will get spendy if you aren't careful. You could set up jack-o-lanterns throughout the reception area. Name your tables after favorite movies you watch around Halloween. Play Halloween-themed music during the reception (Monster Mash, Witchy Woman, Witchcraft, That Old Black Magic, etc)
