The spookiest, creepiest wedding invitations you'll ever see

I thought I'd do a special roundup for Halloween week here at Offbeat Bride. I looked through the archives of the Offbeat Bride Tribe to bring you some of my favorite halloween invitations and save the dates…

To start, Tribesmaid Sara made these Ouija save the dates for her Halloween wedding. And the back is just as cool!…

These aren't the first Ouija invites that we've seen on Offbeat Bride. Check out these from Derek and Joey for more inspiration.

"As they lay their single lives to rest…" freaking GENIUS! These invites were hand-crafted by Tribesmaid Karolynn.

These Dial M for Murder Marriage save the dates from Tribesmaid Krys gave me chills just looking at 'em.

Check out the be-skulled save the date magnets for Virginia and Eddie's Dia de los Muertos wedding.

These zombie love save the date cards were whipped up by the aptly-named Tribesmaid Redhotmomma.

These severed finger invitations from Martha Stewart served as inspiration for Tribesmaid Lizzy A.M.'s Halloween wedding. Instead of the ribbon tied around the finger she decided to use fake engagement rings.

Tribesmaid Hallowedding bought the main design for our invites on Etsy. "When the design was bought, the seller included different old bat prints to help my designer friend expand on the initial design. I love how it all came out and kept the vintage Halloween look we were going for!"

Tribesmaid Veganxmegan created these "haunted tree" save the dates using Photoshop. She says, "If no one noticed, the font is the closest to the Haunted Mansion font from Disneyland without paying $30… I decided that would be appropriate since we got engaged in the Haunted Mansion. I'm also going to be lining the envelopes in the wallpaper from the Haunted Mansion."

Okay, this isn't spooky as much as it's AWESOME! Good enough to eat? (Wakka Wakka!) Tribesmaid Jane M sent this photo of their wedding date spelled out in Halloween candy to all their guests via email.

And here are their wedding invitations complete with their awesome Halloween-y wedding logo!

Tribe member Trillian used these Corpse Bride save the dates for her wedding. And yeah, clearly they didn't get married on Halloween, but this totally works for their pseudo-victorian Corpse-Bridey goth themed wedding.

This invite is from Tribemember Morgan, who wanted to tie both their Elvis and Halloween theme into their invitations. I think they killed it (pun intended).

I love laser cut invitations and I think they look ESPECIALLY amazing when you're going for a creepy Halloween vibe! Tribe member Team Runcible explains, "We had them laser cut in 8 different colors ranging from indigo (shown) to bubble gum pink. I think the company we worked with, Xylocopa, did a great job designing them."

Tribe member Alina Jette and her husband got married on Friday the 13th. These were pretty perfect, were they not?

Tribe member Corinnemarie22 designed these spooky Halloween invites herself (hence the don't-steal-this grey lines).

Awesome use of the embracing skeletons found near Mantova, Italy, in Tribe member Mysty's save the dates.

Tribe member Caitlin explains about these invites… "I wanted us in 'traditional' wedding clothes on the invites — it's the only way any of our more traditional relatives ar going to see me in a white meringue… if it's covered in blood."

What you're looking at here is a deluge of Dexter themed, crime scene, wedding invitations from Tribe member MakeLifeHappen. Pretty freaky, right? I mean "freaky" in a good way of course.

Tribe member Spooky's fiancé is a classic movie fanatic and she is a self-described horror queen. So, of course she remade the 1931 style Dracula poster to include their faces!

Tribesmaid Halloween Megan was trying to go for a "classy Halloween" invite look and I think she accomplished it! It's pretty AND spooky at the same time.

I'm digging these coffin mailers brought to my attention by Tribesmaid Ambi.

This graveyard themed invite from Tribesmaid Sara K has a ton of spooky cool details. The bottom of the burnt edged invites says, "we're dying to see you there" and it was sealed with a red wax skull.

Kristi McMullen's Day of the Wed invitations are awesome, and they came with this "how to survive a zombie attack" insert:

It's more than possible that I may have missed a few Halloween-y wedding invitations, if you got one that I missed, leave 'em in the comments!

  1. I've been trying to void porn since my wedding is rapidly approaching, but I'm glad I checked out this stuff! It felt more like being in a museum than looking at wedding porn.

  2. I have to say that "Dial M For Marriage" is the best thing ever! So freaking creative!

  3. The coffins are pretty cool, as are the graveyard ones. Well, the are all very creative, but I like those two the absolute best.

  13. These are awesome! Laser cut one's beautiful although the severed finger's my fave :-D Had to work out what "STD" was in wedding context though, as I have only seen it used medically before, hahaha!!
