Dia de los Muertos invitation roundup

By on Mar. 22nd

While on my endless search for OMGOBT content, I started to notice how many creative Dia de los Muertos ("Day of the Dead") invitations our fabulous OBBs have come up with. And many of them designed by the couples themselves. So I thought I'd profile some of them for you and share some inspiration.

OBT member Shantelle DIY'd her own Day of the Dead style wedding invitations. She and her fiance designed them in Photoshop and used the bright and wonderful color pallet of pink and orange (or "porange" anyone?)…


I love the eyelet at the top that swivels to reveal the pages beneath.

Remember Melissa & Phil's Day of the Dead, heavy metal Mexipalooza wedding? Well it's no wonder that they're invites were just as bad-ass as their wedding…

Extra points for sparkly paper!

Thanks to Adrenachrome1 for uploading these DIY'd DOTD invites to the OBB Flickr Pool, describing them as "a few hours in InDesign, and an online printer- the perfect invite postcards!"

The front of my Day of the Dead wedding invites

I love that these almost look 3D!

OBT member "tattoomama" made her invitations with the help of her MOH, complete with Mad-Lib inspired RSVP cards…

OBT members can check out the rest of her invites here

Thanks to OBT member "Viv" for including her beautiful "Till Death to us Part" wedding invitations in the OBB Flickr Pool.


Even offbeat grooms get in on the invite-designing action, like OBT member MJB's man who drew up these engagement party invitations up, based on a day of the dead cake topper that she was in love with.

Thanks to all the creative offbeat couples out there for providing all this tasty invite porn. And if you're itching for more, check out all of our Dia de los Muertos weddings in the archives.
