“Day of the Dead” Wedding Theme

I love all the fun and beautiful art that is created for “El Día de Los Muertos” — The Day of the Dead. This Mexican holiday is a celebration of the lives of loved ones that haved passed away, which actually makes it a beautiful theme to bring into a wedding. I created this Red & Black Wedding stationary to allow a bride and groom to have The Day of the Dead vibe in their invitation without being too literal, or seemingly morbid, with sugar skulls. I had so much fun collecting the images for this wedding inspiration collage.
