Not everyone elects to have a traditional wedding. Some love the fun and excitement of Halloween and want to share their favorite holiday with others with a marriage ceremony.
Just like those "trick or treaters" that arrive at door, your wedding guests also deserve a special treat. Here are 9 ideas for Halloween wedding favors that you can present to your guests when celebrating your Halloween wedding theme.
Since it's Halloween, fill small paper trick or treat bags with the orange foil covered chocolate pumpkins and other candies. Another option is to buy small, plain white treat bags and stamp or print Halloween themed images on them, along with your names and wedding date. Fold the tops over and seal with a Halloween sticker.
You can purchase some very interesting molded Halloween candles in a variety of shapes and sizes (like pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.) Wrap them up in orange tulle and tie with black curly ribbon.

Fill small, black plastic cauldrons with orange foil-wrapped chocolate pumpkins and/or candy corn.
If you're on the crafty side, make candy filled pumpkin jars. First, you'll need to collect some baby food jars. Paint pumpkins around the glass with craft paint. Cover the top with orange felt and glue two felt leaves to the top. Add a small piece of dowel, painted light brown, for a stem. Fill the jar with candies and add a custom label.
Cut 6" circles of orange tulle and black tulle. Place candies or a small votive candle in each circle. Gather and tie off with the opposite color of ribbon. (Orange ribbon with black tulle and black ribbon with orange tulle.) Don't forget to add a favor tag too!
Buy 1" diameter dowels and cut into 12" lengths. Paint dowels a deep purple. Apply gold stickers in shapes of stars, moon and sun. Seal with acrylic sealer. Add gold and purple streamers tied to one end. Attach a favor tag with your names and wedding date that says: "The power of our love creates a magical world. Thank you for joining us in this mystical night."
Buy small straw brooms (available in craft stores). Wrap black and orange ribbon down the handle and tie a black bow just above the broom. Add some autumn colored silk leaves and dried flowers tucked in and glued around the bow.
Check with a local baker to see if you could have miniature pumpkin pies made. Wrap in cellphane and tie with orange/black ribbons. Simple, unique and delicious!
