We are planning on a late October wedding. Just curious if anyone has used pumpkins as decor, but without making it look too halloweeny? I was thinking chunky glitter on them but not sure if I am going too overboard.
Hi I have heard of others doing this :)
I am thinking the same! I am worried it will fit in too much with halloween but think the punkins are beautiful! Ahhh x
Spray paint them white or glittery, they'll look fab and can make great decorations! Can be good for flowers, candles and even a postbox! Attached some pics I found :) xx
That sounds like fun. I love Becky's idea.
That's an awesome idea. I found this one on Pinterest yesterday and considered using something similar for our top table.
We will be....but haven't yet. Our event dresser is going to sort it for us. If you send me a message I can send you some pics afterwards!
Pinterest have loads of ideas will look lovely x
I'm doing this. Gna spray them either black or white and the the stem bit silver to use as centre pieces
You can have painted pumpkins, there are lots of YouTube videos on how you can paint them so they last 6months also you can put mouldings on them so they look more decorative before painting
I'm using munchkin pumpkins as my table centres.....keeping them orange and dripping black paint down them to look like wax
We got married 21st Oct 16, we had over 60 pumpkins! They looked amazing. Used them as centre pieces on the tables with flower arrangements in them. They didn't look Halloweeny at all. We used stencils (stars/hearts) to design the pumpkins for the venue area and also used a drill to make patterns then put candles in them for the evening. They looked fab. If you do decide to do it go to a farm and pick your own.

Perhaps you could use the autumnal colours of things like leaves and conkers to embellish the pumpkins, making the look more autumnal and less Halloween. Gold glitter would look fabulous!
My friend did n painted them gold they looked amazing
Sounds really awesone. Ones with big smiley faces
Following. Also getting married in October. Fab idea x
Sam Johnson didn't you do this?
Daisy Hughes Dan Field some really cute ideas for you
I spray painted some tiny ones for our ceremony table
We are doing an Autumn theme with pumpkins. It would only look like halloween if you carve them out!! Try sprying them different colours too.
I've been to a wedding on Halloween and they had their names carved into pumpkins. You could paint some white and add flowers to them and use them as a vase. I've added flowers to a pumpkin before it's really easy to do if you follow the instructions online.
You say that now ... by the time you get to it your house will look like Costco Halloween section .... we get married 28th october 17 lol
I got married in June this year and had polystyrene pumpkins I sprayed them pink and rose gold and put glitter on them on top of a candelabra this went with my Cinderella/fairytale theme
My sister got married 29th October last year and used real pumpkins and plain on the table with the table number wrote on with a little ivy draped around it both different but both looked good
