Halloween is a great time for a wedding!

More and more Halloween is becoming a very popular time to have a wedding.
There's just something about Halloween that seem to blend zany, fun and romance all into one amazing wedding event.

By infusing these unique seasonal energies, couples have created "a real stand out from the rest wedding affair" that will always be remembered fondly and with a giggle or two to boot.

For fun, I have included the various moon phases to play with as couples are planning for their Halloween Weddings. It's said that the phases of the moon emit a specific energy and that this energy of the moon's phases lends the same energy to the wedding itself.

True or's fun to consider and incorporate it into the wedding theme.

Moon Phase Correspondences for Energy Workings

* New Moon Energy *
New Moon workings can be done from the day of the new moon to three-and-a-half days after. The new moon is for starting new ventures, new beginnings. Also love and romance, health or job hunting.

* Waxing Moon  Energy*
From seven to fourteen days after the new moon.The waxing moon is for constructive energy, such as love, wealth, success, courage, friendship, luck and health.

* Full Moon Energy *
From fourteen to seventeen-and-a-half days after the new moon. Prime time for rituals for prophecy, protection, divination. Any working that needs extra power, such as help finding a new job or healing for serious conditions, can be done now. Also, love, knowledge, legal undertakings, money and dreams.

* Waning Moon  Energy*
From three-and-a-half to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon.The waning moon is used for banishing energy, for ridding oneself of addictions, illness or negativity.

* Dark Moon Energy *
From ten-and-a-half to fourteen days after the full moon. The dark moon is a time for ridding oneself of bad habits, Binding spells, for exploring our darkest recesses and understanding our angers and passions. Also bringing justice to bear.

Suggestions For Your Halloween Wedding and Guests
Instead of requesting that your guests dress in traditional Halloween costumes, consider asking them to find or create costumes and clothing that are more refined, but still related to Halloween.
Instead of dressing like the Wicked Witch of the West or some gruesome monster, set a more fashionable more and sleek tone.
As an example, women could wear dresses in black with orange or red accessories, dress up like Goddess an enchanting sorceress or a Victorian Beauty.
Men could dress as Wizard, a Rock Star, a Medieval Hunk, or a Prince dressed to go to a wedding.
You get the idea. Keep it fun, but more in keeping with a wedding, rather than a typical Halloween party where anything goes. And remember to take lots of pictures and videos. This is one style of wedding that is sure to bring lots of laughter and fond memories over the years.
