Piñatas, tacos, & cascarones at this Mexican-inspired DIY wedding in Chicago

Steph and David wanted their wedding guests to feel like they were attending a party in their home. Steph made a piñata for the card box, cascarones (Mexican confetti bombs!) to throw after the ceremony, and a ton of fun table decor. Don't miss the taco bar, pies and paletas for dessert, some serious dancing and video games, and, of course, piñatas.

With paper and knitted flowers, an all-vegan-plus-pork menu, and lots of woodsy and crafty details, you know a lot of heart (and probably sweat) went into this wedding. Oh, and don't forget to pour one out for the missing home-brewed beer that could have been.
