Mexican Day of the Dead Themed Weddings

Posted by Anne Damon in Day of the Dead, Fiesta   /   LEAVE A COMMENT

More and more people are really starting to "get" Day of the Dead. It's not a scary time in the Mexican world view, but a time for remembering and honoring people who are important.

If you are even remotely thinking about having a Día de los Muertos themed wedding, now is the time to get your supplies.
