The spookiest, creepiest wedding invitations you’ll ever see

Posted by

I thought I'd do a special roundup for Halloween week here at Offbeat Bride, talking to some of our readers to bring you some of their cutest, most creative Halloween invitations and save the dates. Most of Halloween wedding invitations were DIY projects, which can be frustrating for those of us who aren't quite as crafty, so we're including some pre-made options from Etsy, too.

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

While these were DIYed, you can get similar ones right here.

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 Offbeat Bride reader Karolynn.

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

These laser cut Halloween wedding invitations are from Shimmering Ceremony

These zombie love save the date cards were whipped up by the aptly-named Offbeat Bride Redhotmomma. We love these letterpress zombie wedding invitations from Etsy:

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

Offbeat Bride 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!” You can find similar designs over here.

Offbeat Bride Veganxmegan DIYed 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!) Offbeat Bride reader 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!

Offbeat Bride reader 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 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! Offbeat Bride reader 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.”

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

Offbeat Bride 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 Offbeat Bride reader Mysty's save the dates.

Offbeat Bride reader 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 Offbeat Bride reader MakeLifeHappen. Pretty freaky, right? I mean “freaky” in a good way of course.

Offbeat Bride reader 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!

LOVE these retro Halloween horror wedding invitations from ColorQuarry

Offbeat Bride reader 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 Offbeat Bride reader Ambi.

This graveyard themed invite from Offbeat Bride reader 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.

  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. These are awesome. My fiance and I are having a Halloween wedding this Saturday, eloping tomorrow!

  4. So jealous! I really wanted a Halloween/Fall wedding but got stuck with Summer instead.

  5. Hey, shout out to the Quad Cities! Love to see an offbeat couple from my hometown on the bat inspired invitation!

  6. I love the “Zombie Survival Guide” insert! These awesome invites and such make me wish that it would make any sense to include more spooky stuff in our wedding. Its all so awesome!

  7. It was so much fun to make the Hallowedding bat & lace invites. Jen, I’m so happy that you love how they turned out as much as I do! 🙂

  8. I am so in love with those Martha Stewart finger invites, and the idea of rings instead of ribbons is too perfect!!

  9. Who do I speak with about getting permission for one of these images. I LOVE the night of the living wed for my Halloween wedding this year.

  10. These are awesome! Laser cut one’s beautiful although the severed finger’s my fave 😀 Had to work out what “STD” was in wedding context though, as I have only seen it used medically before, hahaha!!
