But it won’t be a costume!
My friends are getting married on Halloween, and they have asked me to be a bridesmaid! I’m super excited, because I love Halloween and have never been to a “haunted wedding”. Oh yes, the wedding itself will take place in a haunted house, and they will be married by “Wolfman Mac”, host of Nightmare Sinema, a Detroit local access show that plays classic horror movies, along with spooky skits. Here’s the image from the flyer for the event:

They didn’t want to have a big traditional wedding, and their parents were very supportive of that and encouraged them to do something less traditional and involved. When my friends saw the ad for the Halloween wedding running on Nightmare Sinema, they called Wolfman Mac and sealed the deal! Some couples will be getting married, and some will be renewing their vows.
I haven’t picked a dress yet, but I have tons of crazy vintage dresses at my mom’s (thanks for the storage, mom!), so expect a poll soon. I would love your help choosing the best spooky bridesmaids dress! I have a super cute sweater that I bought for my engagement pictures that would be great to wear over any of the dress choices, and should help me stay warm. Mr. Taffy bought a suit at the thrift store this weekend that we can “zombify” for the ceremony. I think he will make a cute zombie date.
Also, I’ll be making a fabulous birdcage veil for the bride, so expect a tutorial before Halloween!
