After seeing this wedding, there is no way we all won't be in the mood for Mexican food and a full-on fiesta — which is exactly what this wedding entails. Papel picado, an awesome Mexican restaurant, and tons of DIYed decor worthy of the event make this colorful shindig a stunner. Add in the gorgeous vintage-style chapel and sweet mother/daughter impromptu dance, and you'll be in love with this love.

Oh sure, I've done plenty of round-ups focused on skull shoes. But what about just bones? As we wrap up what's been an amazing Halloween week (and some of us recognizing Dia de los Muertos), it feels like expanding my skull focus to include bones feels about right. Of course lots of these are Iron Fist, but you'll find a few surprises tucked in here, too…
We love us some Halloween week, but we couldn't resist this Dia de los Muertos wedding, too! Sugar skulls, colorful decor at a fab Mexican restaurant… oh, and more sugar skulls! Grab yourself a margarita and check out this adorable hair-styling couple and their Mexican-American wedding love fest.

This wedding explodes with color, papel picado, and Dia de los Muertos imagery. But seriously… the best parts are the choreographed ceremony entrance and the amazing choreographed hip hop first dance (that we teased last week!).

This Jason and Freddy Kruger wedding cake just blew my mind. It also made me think… what OTHER incredible Halloween-themed wedding cakes do we have in our archives. The answer: a shit ton and they're all impressive, a little bit spooky, and more than likely delicious.
