Favors For A Halloween Theme Wedding
by Rose Smith
Not everyone elects to have a traditional wedding. Some love the fun and excitement of Halloween and want to share their favorite holiday with others with a marriage ceremony. Just like those "trick or treaters" that arrive at your door, your wedding guests also deserve a special treat. Here are 9 ideas for wedding favors that you can present to your guests when celebrating your Halloween themed wedding.
Halloween Theme Wedding Favor Ideas
Trick or Treat Bags
Since it's Halloween, fill small paper trick or treat bags with the orange foil covered chocolate pumpkins and other candies.
You can purchase some very interesting molded Halloween candles in a variety of shapes and sizes (like pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.). Wrap up in orange tulle and tie with black curly ribbon.
Cauldron of Pumpkins
Fill small, black plastic cauldrons with orange foil-wrapped chocolate pumpkins.
If you're on the crafty side, make candy filled pumpkin jars. First, you'll need to collect some baby food jars. Paint pumpkins around the glass with craft paint. Cover the top with orange felt and glue two felt leaves to the top. Add a small piece of dowel, painted light brown, for a stem. Fill the jar with candies.

Orange Net Favors
Cut 6" circles of tulle in orange and black colors. Place either candies or a small votive candle in each circle. Gather and tie off with the opposite color of ribbon. (Orange ribbon, black tulle and black ribbon, orange tulle.)
Buy 1" diameter dowels and cut into 12" lengths. Paint dowels a deep purple. Apply gold stickers in shapes of stars, moon and sun. Seal with acrylic sealer. Add gold and purple streamers tied to one end. Attach a favor tag with your names and wedding date that says: "The power of our love creates a magical world. Thank you for joining us in this mystical night."
Buy small straw brooms (available in craft stores). Wrap black and orange ribbon down the handle and tie a black bow just above the broom. Add some autumn colored silk leaves and dried flowers tucked in and glued around the bow.
Purchases small jars of pumpkin butter. It's like pumpkin pie in a jar and it's great on biscuits and crackers.
Miniature Pumpkin Pies
Check with a local baker to see if you could have miniature pumpkin pies made. Wrap in cellophane and tie with orange/black ribbons. Simple, unique and delicious!
Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas
Holiday Wedding InvitationsIt is a great idea to send out 'Save The Date' cards to people you are inviting to your holiday wedding. These pre-wedding invitation cards should be sent out at least two months prior to the mailing of your invitations. The advance notice will allow invitees to make their holiday plans in advance around your wedding date.
