A handful of crisp, fall leaves or fruit-filled cornucopias make for Halloween decor that highlights the season while keeping out the creepy. Remember, a Halloween wedding doesn’t mean the bride and groom have to stumble down the aisle like zombies–a toned down Halloween theme or rustic vibe can make a Halloween wedding elegant and unique.
