We are having a “Til Death Do Us Part” themed wedding, but dont want to throw to much death in everyones faces, our colors are Black/Red/Silver
– engagement photos were at an abandoned prison
– embosing the wedding invites with a skull stamp-both are black so it will look very subtle
– FI wants to make the card box in the shape of a coffin
– I found wood carved 3′ tall bride and groom skeletons that we will put on eather side of (whatever cardbox we use)
-for the table number display in the hallway i found “skull photo holders” we will print the table guests on a 4×6 card
is that too much…? not enought…..?

@AndysCraftsNmore: The coffin would be too much for me.

I don’t think i’d do a coffin for the card box, but everything else doesn’t seem like too much.

@AndysCraftsNmore: I would also lose the coffin.
I’m sure you mean well (and I know you have recently lost loved ones) but at some point the theme might come off as disrespectful to those that have lost loved ones or aren’t dealing with it the same way you are. It’s like….trying to make death quirky and cool or at least that’s how some people may take it.

You could use a Day of the Dead House (made from a dollhouse) instead.
without the skeleton
or a black (or dark) birdcage

If you’re generally goth or punk, I think people wouldn’t be too weirded out by the coffin. But if you’re a couple football-watching, J-Crew wearing folks, yeah, it might be kind of strange to people.
Even so, your wedding is close enough to Halloween that you may be able to get away with it.

@julies1949: I really like them. ..I like the typical birdcage ones but we have a few money grubbing people in our immediate family (ide rather not invite ) but we still have to invite…so something larger would be best…that’s why we were thinking a large coffin
