  • Lauren Conrad's DIY Circus Performer Halloween Costume Is A Perfect Twist For Your Homecoming Dress

    If you follow former MTV reality TV star Lauren Conrad, you know how big Halloween is for her. Every year, she comes up with her very own DIY Halloween costume ideas, and they're pretty incredible... and totally classy. We especially love Lauren's Halloween ideas, because they tend to pair perfectly with re-using your prom or homecoming dress or your favorite little black dress. Last year, she put together a cute DIY Party Animal costume, and this year she has a brand new idea for you!

    Lauren Conrad's 2016 Halloween costume DIY idea is... circus performers! Lauren explains that she came up with the idea a few months ago (she's clearly serious about Halloween) when she saw a sequin star dress from Valentino's Star Studded collection.

  • A BOOtiful Halloween Wedding in Sherri Hill and Mon Cheri Bridals

    Halloween is all about embracing your inner child, being whoever you want to be for one day, celebrating ancient traditions, having fun with your besties and family, and of course, lots of treats! Many people absolutely love Halloween, waiting patiently all year for the one special day. For those people, the idea of having another especially special day, their wedding, on Halloween would make their wedding that much more special. After all, weddings are all about celebrating ancient traditions, embracing your love for your significant other, celebrating that love with your besties and family, all in one special day. See a resemblance?

    Well, one of our Roo Girls, Cori, loves Halloween more than any other holiday. So, when it came time to celebrate her wedding day, she made it extra special by having a Halloween wedding! Since October 31st fell on a Saturday in 2015, having a Halloween wedding couldn't have been any more perfect. It was an absolutely BOOtiful wedding, from the Sherri Hill bridesmaid dresses, to the Mon Cheri Bridal flower girl dress, to the hair and makeup, flowers, desert, and photography. The wedding took place at Rams Head Inn in Galloway, NJ, which was the perfect setting for a fall wedding. Check out all the details of the spooktacular wedding below.

    The Big Day All Started With The Hair and Makeup

    Esthetica Salon and SpaCori and her bridesmaids got ready for Cori's big wedding day at Esthetica Salon and Spa in Northfield, NJ. They got their hair and make-up done and were off to put on their dresses. See the special tanktops all of the bridesmaids wore? They all have the hashtag of Cori's wedding on them - #CORNNYLOVE, which isn't only a play on candy corn for Halloween, but is the combination of Cori and her husband's name, Johnny.

    The Bride Wore A Traditional White Bridal Dress, So She Had Her Bridesmaids Wear Black

    Sherri Hill 32084Cori chose a beautiful layered and patterned white strapless bridal dress. We especially loved the jeweled waist band around the dress - a perfect way to add a touch of sparkle! While Cori went the traditional white bridal dress route, it's also common for brides to wear non-traditional dress colors for Halloween weddings, like black, grey, or red. Having a Halloween wedding (and any wedding, for that matter) is all about choosing a dress that you feel confident and comfortable in, so choose a dress that fits you best!

    Since Cori went with white for her bridal dress, she had her bridesmaids rock black bridesmaids dresses that she got at RissyRoos.com to bring in a touch of Halloween color to the bridal party. They wore Sherri Hill style 32084, a fierce and fabulous ball gown with a strapless sweetheart beaded bodice and a long flowing satin ball gown skirt. The theme for Cori's wedding was a Masquerade Ball, so the Sherri Hill black ball gown was not only important for rocking Halloween colors, but to set the black tie masquerade vibe of the wedding.

    The Bridal Party Looked Like Classic Elegance

    Halloween Wedding Bridal PartyChoosing black dresses and suits for the bridal party, with both the bride and flower girl in white dresses, kept the entire look so elegant and perfect for pictures. The only way you can tell that the party was a Masquerade Halloween themed wedding is if you were at the party! Perfect for still having classic pictures to share with others.

    The tuxes were from Sharp Cleaners Tuxedos in Ocean City, NJ. The flower girl also wore a dress from RissyRoos.com, one by famous dress designer Mon Cheri Bridals! While the dress was white, she wore a black ribbon around her waist and carried a basket with black and purple ribbons wrapped around the handle. It was all about just the right amount of touch of Halloween at Cori's wedding.

    The Bride and Groom Rocked A Touch Of Halloween, Too

    Bride and Groom Halloween ShoesEven though the bride and groom were in traditional wedding attire, Cori and Johnny still rocked a touch of Halloween! Cori wore funky heels (see a close-up picture below), and Johnny rocked orange and black striped socks.

    Funky bride high heelsHow cute and funky are Cori's bridal high heels?! We're in love with this totally unique idea - so fun, but still classy!

    Halloween Wedding FlowersCori's and the bridemaid's flowers also had a hint of Halloween. The flowers chosen were very fall inspired, even with leaves included in the bouquet. The bouquet was wrapped in black and white striped ribbon. Beetlejuice, anyone?! The beautiful bride and bridesmaid bouquets were put together by Pocket Full of Posies Florist in Galloway, NJ.

    The Wedding Party Was All Halloween

    Halloween Wedding Masquerade MasksThe Halloween wedding was masquerade themed, so the guests didn't need to bring anything to have some Halloween fun - all of the masquerade masks were provided at the wedding party! It's a simple and easy to way to make sure everyone can join in on the fun at a Halloween wedding.

    Halloween Wedding CakeEven the wedding cake was Halloween themed! The bride and groom cake topper were cute skeletons... even their cat, Chicken, was represented on the top of the wedding cake with a skeleton kitty! The orange and black icing cupcakes, made by Simply Sweet Cupcakes in Egg Harbor City, NJ, topped off the whole look.

    Frankenstein and His Bride Lived Spookily Ever After

    Frankenstein and Bride of FrankensteinJohnny and Cori had a truly spooktacular wedding! We hope they had as much fun, and made as many memories, as we had looking at their photos! The beautiful wedding pictures were taken by Erin McDevitt Photography in Ventnor City, NJ.

    Johnny and Cori WeddingSo beautiful!! Congratulations to the beautiful couple!! Many years of fun Halloweens to come!
