      Oh my...they kind of scare me. I just showed my FI and he loved them.

      That would be great if you were getting married on the actual day of the dead.

          Very unique. I know a couple that would have LOVED them - but they are already married....

              Love them! Actually, my wedding present from DH was a huge Dia de los Muertos statue. My parents also gave us little ones like those.

              I had a unicorn and a narwhale as my toppers - so this is seriously normal in comparison.

                I was on a kick finding sugar skulls but I couldnt find any good ones and most sites were on how to make your own.

                      Hmmm...this is an old thread, but I'll post this here in hopes of getting a response from someone.  My FI has his heart set on a day of the dead cake topper.  We are, however, getting married in February of next year.  Is there anyone who knows enough about this Mexican celebration to tell me, is it okay to use those images outside of the actual holiday?  I would just hate to find out after the fact that for the Mexican people, it was a big NO-NO.  But I guess my FI is right in the fact that they certainly sell these images all year long there...HELP!
