Halloween Themed Wedding Cakes and Treats
This isn't a vintage wedding post, but it is in the spirit of the season. Since Mr. Fiance and I will be getting married in October of next year the idea of a Halloween wedding has definitely crossed my mind. We're not really interested in doing a themed wedding, but we'd like to incorporate some seasonal motifs into the reception.

There are lots of ways to incorporate the season into a wedding reception without going over the top. I prefer subtle details myself (But if a full blown Halloween costume party wedding with spooky decor is your thing, go for it!). I found a few cakes over the past week that have really got my thinking about our cake.
GothBride55's cute wedding cake.
I just loved this cake. Yes it's Halloween themed, but the cake is still pretty. I might leave out the skulls myself, but the piped white spider webs over the white icing is subtle and still elegant.

This cake is definitely Halloween-esque, but it's also gorgeous. The colors and designs invoke fall and Halloween without the cake looking cheesy or over the top. No skulls, tomb stones, or ghosties here. A definite favorite of mine.

I love the concept of this cake. I love that it's Halloween themed while not being stuck in the typical orange/black color combo. I also love the use of dragonflies and butterflies (an important running theme throughout the film.) I will admit that the cake doesn't look very appetizing to me though. Dark purple just doesn't make me think "Yum." This is more of a display piece in my eyes.

Now this cake definitely has a spooky theme (check out those trees) without being too spooky. The cake is still very pretty and those spooky trees are just darling. This is a great way to bring in a little Halloween spirit while still having the traditional white wedding cake.

Now this cake is my absolute favorite of the day. It says fall while still being fun, a color other than orange & black, and it's really pretty. Deep shades of red and that chocolate brown definitely invoke the feeling of Autumn. And best of all this cake looks like it would be tasty!
Now we've got a very large guest list for the wedding so that means lots and lots of cake will be needed. I don't really want a massive wedding cake or groom's cake, so I just love the idea of having some extra dessert treats available for guests.

Or how about pumpkin pies and tarts?

I have definitely got the creative juices flowing right now. October 2011 wedding, full steam ahead!
What are you other Fall wedding ladies planning for your reception? Let me know, I'd love to hear from you!
