we are both non-traditional, nor non-religious. We wanted to have a “Til Death Do Us Part” themed wedding. But are unsure about what direction to go in for this – we both had quite a few people in our close family/friends pass away just recently. We are not sure how to do it and still be tasteful and not throw death in everyone’s faces, we were going to go with black and burgundy for colors.More twards a royal goth style wedding? we were thinking about having some sort of skull on the invitation…. something like the image …

Love the invite except for being blatant and writing “Til Death Do Us Part.” I think you can use it as a theme but be classy and not actually say it anywhere other than in your vows and maybe put it on your cake.

@AndysCraftsNmore: If you’re having a ’til death do us part’ themed wedding where you write it on the invitations then you are going to be throwing it in people’s faces, at least in a ‘don’t think about elephants’ kind of way. I don’t think this is suitable as a prominent theme if family memebers are still raw from the deaths of loved ones.

I actually really like the invitation and I don’t think it’s inappropriate to have to “Til Death Do Us Part” portion at the bottom… I don’t really get the feeling that it’s thrown in anyone’s face either. That’s what you say when you get married, isn’t it? I also have COMPLETELY opposite tastes, so I feel like that makes my interest in your invitation more credible? Ha!

Love sugar skulls, I would say the best way to use that theme without throwing it in people’s faces would be to not name it. Don’t call it by name, and don’t have coffins or un decorated (non sugar skull type ) skulls or daggers or blood or gravestones…. Those things are heavy (and insensitive to have as reminders at a wedding for those who have suffered losses)
my wonderful sister would be one to think of something like this, and I love those invites… But i would say to keep it as happy as possible.
