Dia de los Muertos Wedding Inspiration

We may all be celebrating Halloween today here in the US but we’re jetting to Mexico for today’s equally festive destination wedding inspiration, Dia de los Muertos! Now you may think the Day of the Dead sounds like a rather odd theme for a wedding, but this holiday is all about celebrating the deceased with vibrant colors and a plethora of food abound. Why stick to Halloween’s black and orange when you can embrace the colorful festivities of this holiday, while respectfully honoring past loved ones too, as we so often already do at weddings? The skulls that are synonymous with this holiday make fantastic place cards and paper adornments, and it goes without saying your flower options are endless!
