Halloween Costumes for Couples Inspired by Hollywood

Sometimes when you are a part of a pair, there’s no better way to spend Halloween than dressing up like your favorite celebrity couple. We think the “Tom and Katie” costume got a little old last year, so here are some fresh ideas that will give you a chance to pay homage to Patrick Swayze, embrace your inner geek or even indulge in your secret love of vampires (who doesn’t love a man in guy-liner?).

Rant or Rave: Staying in on Halloween

As all of the Wedding Paper Divas staffers stand around in their pirate, princess and pumpkin costumes, the conversation inevitably turns to our plans for tonight. Half of us are headed out on the town or to parties to celebrate monster mashes and graveyard bashes, but the other half are planning a quiet evening at home—except for the endless knocking of trick-or-treaters!

This debate has us wondering at what point as a married couple do you decide to spend a leisurely Halloween at home instead of running out to parties, haunted houses and other spooky events? What are your plans this year? Will you be renting classic horror movies or horrifying your friends when you win “Scariest Costume” at a local club? Does the idea of staying in on Halloween make you want to rant or rave?
