October is here, which for many people means Halloween fun. For those of you who love the macabre of the season, a Halloween themed wedding can be a fun way to celebrate the season and your nuptials at the same time. From pumpkins to witches and everything in between, there’s no shortage of ideas for designing your spectacularly spooky special day at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC. Here are just a few ways you can incorporate Halloween into your wedding!


Decorating your tables with skulls, cauldrons with swirling dry ice, or pumpkins for vases or using black tree branches dripping with crystals can really set a classy but spooky mood for your big day. Black or blood-red roses and dark flowers like deep purple calla lilies also evoke a dark and mysterious vibe for your witchy wedding celebration. Dark colored candles in lieu of bright lighting can also set the stage for drama.

Lighting Effects

Our in-house AV team, AV Workshop can help design a light show or spook-tactular eerie mood lighting for your special event or wedding.

Wedding Party Ensembles

Dress your bridesmaids in flowing dresses with dark tones like black or deep purple with matching manicures. Consider dark flowers on a stark black cake. Dress groomsmen in monochromatic suits, or Victorian era suits with capes.

Involve Your Guests

Once you’ve set a theme, let your guests know. Have them wear all black or come in costume.


Hiring a photo booth and stocking it with spooky and fun props for your guests to use in pictures is a fun and festive way to get in the Halloween spirit. Another fun idea? Hire actors to play witches, monsters, and zombies. They can even help out by wearing clothing that serves champagne.

Consider hosting fun Halloween games, like eating donuts off a rope, or bobbing for apples. You could even host a costume contest for guests, with prizes for those who best embody your theme, are the most creative, most realistic, and more.y

Embrace the Darkness

Indoor mood lighting not quite dark enough? A rooftop wedding at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° lets you enjoy the night sky and crisp fall air, and hopefully a view of the moon if it cooperates. The lights of the NYC skyline and a little magic from AV Workshop can help create a spooky atmosphere. A rooftop wedding is also appealing to those concerned about attending large gatherings post-covid.
