My FH and I are not Hispanic. He is Italian and I am Northern/Western European. But we were both raised in our hometown of Albuquerque, NM, and are thinking about having a Mexican/Dias de Los Muertos themed, small, wedding.
We love the culture where we live and were raised, but we don’t want to have an awkward or offensive wedding.
Am I looking too much into this? I just don’t want to offend my guests or celebrate in bad taste.
Thanks for the help!

I am not hispanic either but I would LOVE to go to a Dia de los Muertos wedding! I think it is reflective of your culture and surroundings, and it would be so fun! So many things in the hispanic culture are festive, and what better celebration than a wedding?
Some people might not “get it,” but it’s ultimately about what you two want. i wouldn’t be offended at all- I’d think it was awesome.

I am hispanic. And I say , do it. Just be sure if you are having a lot of guests steeped in the culture, you do honor traditions correctly. Same with any culture. Do your research and you should be fine. I’d love to go to your wedding, it sounds fun!

Thanks, bees! I just wanted to get other’s opinions on this. I feel much better about it. And I will definitely research so I don’t mess anything up.:)

@Future Mrs. Christian: I am hispanic and I dont think anything for Dia de Los Muertos would be offensive. Its actually flattering that other people that are not hispanic like Dia de Los Muertos. This is a neat idea!

It completely reflects the place where you met; I don’t think it’s offensive at all. 🙂

I think it would be very cool, but I’d never be able to do it. My SO is latino and his family is very Catholic. I don’t know that they would be offended, but I think they’d be confused. My SO sweeps the house for anything skull related before his parents come over.

Not offensive! I think that’s totally cool, and like pp said it reflects where you guys met!
