Wedding season may be over for most mortal newlyweds, but there are some couples out there who want their special days to be shared with the undead on Halloween. If you and your partner want to creep out your relatives during the ceremony and reception, here are some of the most haunted wedding venues in the country.

Don Vicente de Ybor Inn

Cheerfully nicknamed "Hell Hotel," this Florida wedding location was once a mob hangout. Creepier than that is the fact that it was also used by a real-life mad scientist who wanted to bring corpses to life a la Dr. Frankenstein. For that reason, more than a few restless spirits call this place home.

The Queen Mary

This ship has worn many hats. It was once used as a party ship for stars like Clark Gable and Ira Gershwin. During World War II, it became a warship. Now, this mighty vessel sits off the coast of Long Beach, where it's used as a hotel and a wedding venue. Legend has it that long-dead crew members like to crash parties on their beloved ship.

Omni Shoreham Hotel

As one of the most luxurious hotels in Washington D.C., this sprawling resort has hosted several presidents and congressmen over the years, and the beautifully creepy place still hosts weddings today. One of its presidential suites is literally called the "Ghost Suite," since it's known for housing quite a few paranormal visitors.

The Stanley Hotel

The interior of this Colorado hotel was made famous by The Shining, and today, visitors love to hang out at this venue during the Halloween season. As you might guess, the joint looks great when it's decked out in its spooky holiday finery. Maybe you can even get Jack Nicholson to officiate the wedding! What's he been doing lately, anyway?

Hotel del Coronado

This scenic beach venue in Coronado, California, is perfect for weddings, but you might have to share your special night with Kate Morgan -- the local ghost whose body was found dead on the beach with a mysterious gunshot wound to the head many years ago.

Belcourt Castle

This "castle" is technically a giant hunting lodge in Rhode Island, but it is definitely suited for scary weddings. The Gothic ballroom is known for its ghostly dancers, and there's a mirror that won't show your reflection when you walk by.

Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable, and what's more memorable than a haunted ceremony? Tell your photographer to be on the lookout for some of these ghostly guests!
