Halloween weddings may not have been very popular until not very long ago – but the truth is that nowadays, many brides and grooms choose this to be their wedding theme.  Why wouldn’t you do it too? A Halloween wedding can be truly unique and it can be just as elegant and fabulous as any other wedding theme – so there’s really no reason why you wouldn’t want to settle for the idea.


To inspire you, we have gathered some of the classiest and most beautiful Halloween wedding ideas – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • – Pumpkins. There’s nothing to say “Halloween” more than pumpkins – and the good news is that they can be successfully incorporated into a wedding too. Use gold or silver spray to give your pumpkins a precious look and use them as centrepieces for your wedding tables  – they will definitely add a lot of uniqueness to your décor!
  • – Halloween-infused sweets. Candy bars are extremely popular with brides and grooms – so it would be a really great idea if you would create a Halloween-themed candy bar too. Put together your favorite Halloween sweets and allow your guests to indulge in their deliciousness – they will love it!
  • – A Halloween-colored wedding. You don’t have to go all the way with your Halloween theme and you don’t have to decorate your wedding with spider webs and zombies to make it authentic. As a matter of fact, you can simply use Halloween colors to decorate your Big Day. For instance, orange, white and black décor will look absolutely gorgeous and they will be more than appropriate for this holiday.

How to Get Your Wedding Guests Acquainted with Each Other

Part of having a successful wedding is making sure your guests feel great while there. How to get your wedding guests acquainted with each other, though? How do you help them break the ice and have fun together even if they don’t know each other that well? We have gathered some tips to help you out – so read on if you want to find out more.


  • – Plan the perfect rehearsal dinner. If you want to help your parents, close relatives and wedding party get to know each other better before the wedding, having a rehearsal dinner is essential. It doesn’t have to be something very fancy – as long as it brings everyone together and as long as it’s fun, everyone will be more than happy to attend it.
  • – Bring some games. Aside from the traditional music and food, you should also bring some short, fun games to your wedding. Mad Libs, unique guest books that push your guests to talk to each other, fun board games – all these things are always entertaining regardless of what your age may be.
  • – Carefully plan the seating arrangement – both for the ceremony and for the reception. This is key if you want everyone to feel great at your wedding. Avoid putting together people that don’t know (or like) each other and bring together people who share similar interests or who have something in common at least. It will be much more likely that they will have fun this way!


Here at The Mackey House, we truly want your Big Day to be flawless. This is precisely why we have prepared a gorgeous venue perfect to accommodate your wedding ideas to perfection. Give us a call, visit us and do not hesitate to book us for your wedding!

5 Unique Ways to Display Your Wedding Food

Your wedding food is one of the most important parts of the Big Day. And while taste will matter a lot, the truth is that the way your food is displayed can make a huge difference too. What are some of the most unique ways to display your wedding food, though? We have gathered 5 of the most beautiful ones – so read on if you want to find out more:


  • – Pies at different heights. Serving cake at the wedding is perfectly fine – but if you want to add a warm , welcoming touch to the Big Day, you should definitely go for a variety of pies. Display them at different heights on a special table and they will look truly amazing.
  • – Unique décor. Your food tables have to be decorated too. Make sure you are creative about the way you do this if you want everything to look unique. For instance, hanging terrariums with succulents in them will make for a perfect piece of décor for an outdoor wedding’s food tables (especially if everything else is on the rustic-chic side).
  • – Special shots. Aside from the actual food and drinks, make sure you provide your guests with special snacks as well. For instance, “shooter snacks” are very popular these days and there’s a huge variety of options you can choose from: tomato soup and grilled cheese, milk and cookies, and so on.
  • – Snacks in eating utensils. Make it easy for your guests to grab a snack by displaying them on the actual eating utensils. For instance, if you want to have a cheese bar, place small pieces of cheese in forks and display them as they are.
  • – Unique bars. Candy bars are great, but if you want to truly surprise your guests, think of something more original than that. For instance, an ice cream bar where guests can customize their own sweet (and ice-cold) snack would be a fun idea.


No matter what you choose, rest assured that The Mackey House will be able to accommodate your amazing wedding ideas. Come visit us in Savannah, take a look around and book us for an unforgettable wedding day!
