But before they can chose their costumes, carve the pumpkin centerpieces, and stock the candy bar; they must find a venue.
And what’s better than historically haunted hotels and houses?

The Omni Parker House, located in Boston, MA is available for wedding bookings, as well as a ghostly treat.
Harvey Parker, the hotels first manager is said to haunt the property. Guests have reportedly claimed they have seen Parker in their rooms, sometimes even asking how their stay is.
Talk about room service.
The hotel has been hosting weddings since 1855, and currently offers two areas to choose from.

The Rooftop Ballroom is advertised as the “only one in the city,” on the Omni Parker House website and can accommodate up to 250 guests. The Alcott Ballroom, located on the Mezzanine level can hold up to 130 guests.

But there’s even creepier.

Lizzie Borden murdered her father and stepmother with an axe in 1892, in Fall River, MA.
And for couples with a darker, Halloween, all things creepy passion-can be lucky enough to have the option of holding their wedding at the Borden’s old house.
Footsteps, voices, crying and even the sight of a woman’s ghost have all been reported by guests.
And why not get married where a murderer once lived?
Wedding parties of 20 guests or less can rent out the house for around $1,500.
