Halloween weddings

This month's feature article on the Renaissance Store's website deals with Halloween weddings, a popular new theme for brides and grooms. The site also offers sources for handfastings and gothic weddings.

Kim Matzke, the author of My Big Fat Halloween Wedding writes:

Now you may be thinking, "What on earth made you want to get married on Halloween?" Believe it or not, Halloween is a date that many couples are choosing to perform their nuptials. For us, it was the anniversary of our first date and it is a day that both of us can easily remember. Halloween is popular for pagan weddings because of the New Year/New Life symbolism. It is popular with devotees of goth culture for obvious reasons and nearly everyone else because of its associations with parties and fun.
