Humble pumpkins have the potential to make brilliant and cheap wedding decorations. They cost just a few pounds in the shops and you can often pick them up for pence from market stalls. With a little time and a few craft supplies, you can create some unique looks that will give your Halloween wedding a contemporary edge. Here are some we really like.

Floral

Hollowed out pumpkins make excellent containers for flowers. Use them as table centerpieces, aisle decorations, stand them on cake stands or dot them around the venue beside doorways and steps outside.

White

If orange doesn’t work with your colour scheme, paint your pumpkins. White pumpkins are instantly weddingy and look trés chic. Painting with one colour is also the easiest and quickest way to customise your gourds.

Metallic

Gold and silver pumpkins look fantastic and have a hint of Cinderella about them. Metallics look great with textures such as lace or decoupage. For more bling, pimp your pumpkin with glamorous glitter or sequins.

Pattern

For a totally different take on pumpkins, get creative with stenciling, ombré paint effects and decoupage. If you don’t have a lot of time, glue on patterned fabric or ribbon for an instant customised look.

Cut out

Pumpkins make great lanterns of course, and what better way to brighten up your wedding venue after dark. Simple patterns of dots or diamond shapes are simple to do, or if you’re a bit handy with a knife, you could try something a more adventurous.

Halloween wedding venues

A country barn is the perfect place for apple bobbing and ghostly goings on. Curradine Barns in Worcestershire is delightfully rustic, has a dramatic barn with wrought iron chandeliers and a courtyard that looks great after dark.

Tyn Dwr Hall in North Wales could be your very own creepy country house for the night (and day of course). The traditional parts of the house would be perfect for Halloween-themed decorations and the stunning grounds are said to be home to the largest yew tree in Wales which has been known to be the site of many strange happenings!
