Throw a Halloween-themed wedding without sacrificing a (candy) kernel of elegance.

If the idea of bobbing for apples in your organza gown makes you shriek more than a blemish on your big day, then read on. Your Halloween-themed wedding doesn't have to feel like a little kid's birthday bash—though a candy buffet is a definite must! Skip the costumes and cobwebs, and go for elegant accents, sophisticated dishes and scarily sinful cocktails. We'll show you romantic touches that will transform your monster ball from cheesy to legendary. —Brie Schwartz with Anne Chertoff
