Weddings, too, will give a nod to the Día de Los Muertos traditions. It’s not uncommon to see tiny skeletons in wedding garb perched on top of wedding cakes. (Sometimes out-of-towners are unnerved by the morbid image, but it’s all in good fun!)
This weekend we will be gifting guests with these sweet hand-made sugar skull cookies from Picket Fence Confections. ¡Qué cute!
Instead of giving your guests a pouch of Jordan almonds, (I say “meh”), dazzle them with wearable art favors! This past weekend, my entire wedding party was decked out in custom buttons designed by the bride’s brother and brought to life by Busy Beaver, an online custom button shop. Everyone showcased their Santa Fe wedding love with a “Dia de los Muertos” bride and groom and a red chile heart. Que cute!
