Be there if you dare! Get your guests psyched for your "Hallowedding" with a themed invitation that sets a spooky mood.
Your wedding invite gives your guests a first glimpse at the ambiance that awaits them on your big day. If you're hosting a Halloween wedding, you’ll want to make that first impression count with a one-of-a-kind invitation that promises a ghoulishly good time. Besides giving your guests the basic deets such as date, time, and place, be sure to also include any other necessary information—like whether costumes are encouraged for your ceremony and reception. Keep in mind as you’re comparing invitation designs and prices that some options—such as higher quality paper or different shaped cards—are available as upgrades at an additional cost. On the plus side, some companies offer a lower per invitation cost when you order a larger quantity. Ready to be inspired? Check out these supernaturally awesome invites.
