THIS DAY OF THE DEAD WEDDING WILL INSPIRE YOU TO HAVE A HALLOWEEN WEDDING
Those of you that read our blog regularly will by now have realised we are slightly obsessed with Mexico and its culture, especially Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead as some of you might know it. Once only celebrated in Mexico, the holiday is now celebrated around the world in honor of deceased loved ones. In Phoenix Arizona, there is small a unique Spanish village that is the inspiration for today’s styled shoot. It wonderfully captures the essence of this colorful celebration with vibrant flowers, fruits, layered linens, candles and of course- skulls.
There are so many things I love about this shoot, but I immediately fell in love with the couples sugar skull makeup. It looks so unique! Of course if this isn’t your thing there is still a ton of inspiration to be had, from the tabletops decorated in mounds of fruit, themed cocktails and even a churro cart.
With such beautiful and vibrant decor it’s easy to forget that at the core of Dia de los Muertos is an ancient tradition from which we can also take inspiration when it comes to honoring lost loved ones at a wedding. This can be in a number of ways from lighting a candle in memory, or creating an altar with photos of loved ones.
I don’t know about you but I will never tire of seeing the creative ways in which couples incorporate traditions such as Dia de los Muertos into their wedding days, what traditions will you be honoring at your wedding?
