It’s time for me to admit that the moment the 5th of July happens and I clean up holiday decor, I instantly start the internal debate of when I can pull out the Halloween decorations and I start to get very series about couple’s Halloween costume ideas and family Halloween costume ideas.

If you’ve been a reader around here for a while you know it’s my favorite holiday, and one of our bucket list items is to win the highly competitive couple’s Halloween costume contests at our friend’s annual Halloween party. This is a goal we don’t take lightly, and we’ve only come in second, so the eye of the tiger is strong, and I’m already scheming!

Couple Costumes for Halloween + Family Costume Ideas Too!

I also love how many of you wait for our costume reveal each year, it’s always one of my favorite posts! Last year I felt so prepped, but the year prior I was one month postpartum and our original plan fell through miserably, I almost called off our first family Halloween costume and attending the party. But in true last-minute stress fashion, I had a stroke of inspiration happen where a ton of ideas came and I started a list of couples costumes/couple’s with baby costumes and realized after a long list came to mind that this was something I needed to hang onto!

Now that we’re coming up on our seventh Halloween married and our eighth Halloween dressing up in a couple’s costume, I’ve learned this is just a way of life and something I am always jotting ideas down and adding to that list, and after hoarding it for myself for so long I’ve decided it’s time to share the wealth and help anyone looking for a list of couple’s Halloween costume ideas and share our past costumes as well as the list.

  1. Your Princess Bride costumes were some of my very favorite! So simple but so clever and the cutest rodent I’ve ever seen!

  2. this is such a great list my attention span can’t even handle it. This is the epitome of “pin it for later” lol will consult closer to the day. As much as I love the holiday, I am notorious for waiting until the last minute to put together a costume. It usually works out pretty well for me, though!
