If you’re looking for a sophisticated idea for a fall or Halloween wedding, then look no further. The masquerade ball with mysterious masks and a dark color palette is an elegant option. This mystical theme not only looks amazing, but also provides an abundance of fun for you and your guests. From guessing who is underneath the mask to impressive eerie decor.

For a vintage take on this theme, go for unusual masks teamed with a lace dress and light brown suit. Great for weddings in old warehouses or lofts. A candlelit reception will definitely up the scare-factor as well as providing some serious mood lighting. You can still use classic floral arrangements with this darker theme, such as whites and pinks. Gold and black are a stunning combo, especially for weddings around Halloween.

Another option for a masquerade themed table, is by going for a slightly cleaner approach. Team gold and black with white accents and mini gold pumpkins. If you’re going for wooden tables, this will work well; especially in a barn setting. Black candle holders were made for a masquerade ball and you can use any combination of candle colors to match with them. Glitter and feathers as cake decorations will complement the design of your masks.




When it comes to selecting masks, there are many references to help inspire you. Venetian, 18th Century and Mardi Gras are fun styles to choose from. Or you can design and customize them yourself. Black bridesmaid dresses will complete the look especially when paired with deep plum bouquets.
