27 Must-See Dia de los Muertos Wedding Ideas

You may have picked up on the fact that we were kind of excited for Halloween. Just a little bit. But that didn’t mean that we forgot today was Dia de los Muertos, a day that brings with it a whole different kind of celebration and a rainbow’s worth of bright, beautiful decorations and festivities. If you don’t have anything planned for today, RSVP to these Dia de los Muertos-themed weddings. If you’re planning your nuptials around the time of this Mexican holiday, check out these 27 must-see ideas for the themed wedding of the year. (2015 ;)
