Weddings: Brides ghost stories
Halloween the scariest night of the year is coming,  it has always been a holiday filled with mystery, magic and superstition. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought to avoid being recognized by these ghosts they could wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. Today Halloween evolved into community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating, and cool night parties in costumes.
Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became faint. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth…

To commemorate the event, Druids built sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, in attempt to blending with the spirits coming from the dead-world.
Over the years up today, Halloween celebration, spread in the world, first with Holy Roman Empire that conquered many of the Celtic territory, and combined Roman and Celtic customs and traditions, then with American colonies…

I started from history, to imaging something different than a cool night party. I prefer to imagine a loving couple, spending Halloween night together, a spooky romantic night, sharing intimacy, maybe cuddling on the couch, watching horror movies with a wedding theme naturally … few suggestions …

A classic … Hellbride.
Photos form the movie Hellbride of Pat Higgins
And my favorite.. ( maybe I shouldn’t say because I’m a wedding planner? ) It is  not a movie but a tv show, Dexter Morgan, a forensics expert, a loyal husband, brother, and friend. That's what he seems to be, but that's not what he really is. Dexter Morgan is a sociopath Serial Killer with a code … he kills only the the bad guys.
