5 Classy Ideas for a Halloween Wedding Reception

If you love Halloween and are getting married in October, a themed reception or open house can be a treat.  However, all Latter-day Saints want to invite the spirit into the wedding festivities and some Halloween themes can drive it away.

Luckily for all Halloween lovers out there, we have five classy ideas that will incorporate your love for this October holiday while maintaining a classic wedding feel.
