Now that we definitely know whether The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie (I still claim is a 365-day movie), we can finally settle in and really appreciate it and all the Tim Burton movies we heart. And when Tim Burton meets wedding themes, we get a little bit of movie magic turned wedding magic.

It's almost Halloween, so let's sink our teeth into a big ol' roundup of Tim Burton weddings with themes including Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride, and of course, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

There's actually TOO MUCH amazing Beetlejuice fashion and handcrafted decor to feature here from Sarah and Troy's Beetlejuice-themed, epic FX movie wedding. You simply have to click over to absorb it all. Think wedding doorway arches, sand worm ceremony, and Beetlejuice officiant.

Okay, just a few more shots to whet your appetite:

Another sandworm ceremony to make us swoon, this time at Beth and Brian's wedding. It's such a perfectly eerie sand ceremony twist.

I will never tire of seeing Nightmare Before Christmas cakes in all their forms. Keep them coming, people. Look at the adorable Oogie Boogie on this one. So evil, so cute.
