{Weekend Wedding} Destination Mexico!

Welcome to a {Weekend Wedding} in Mexico!

Welcome to Mexico!  This couple was really inspired by the colouful and summery atmosphere of Mexico and knew that it would be the perfect theme for their wedding.  An elegant, yet festive strapless organza wedding dress with cascading ruffles by Demetrios Sposabella is accented by colourful mismatched Mexican peasant dresses on the bridesmaids (photo by Daisy Varley).  Long before this fiesta took place, the guests received invitations decorated with Mexican inspired images of hanging lace reminiscent of the Mexican celebration of El Día de los Muertos, or "the Day of the Dead."  Instead of using flowers, the couple opt for unique bouquets and centerpieces of succulents and cacti.  The reception tables are draped in colourful  striped linens reminiscent of Mexican tapestries and every table is numbered in Spanish rather than English.  The guests indulge in a delicious buffet of the couple's favourite Mexican foods while sipping on various Mexican liquors.  Instead of serving a cake, the couple chose to offer their guests powdered pecan cookies, which is a traditional wedding dessert in Mexico.  At the end of the evening, everyone is sent home with a brightly coloured maraca (photo by Daisy Varley) to keep the fun spirit of this celebration alive long after it is finished.

{It's the Little Touches ...}

Want a unique piece of jewelry for your wedding rather than going with the stand-by of diamonds, crystals, or pearls?  These necklaces by etsy seller JustineJustine feature long strings of colouful beads made from the acai fruit.

A Mexican themed wedding is the perfect time to add a little South into your footwear!  Put you and your girls in cowboy boots!  The more styles and shades that you have, the more eclectic and unique your look will be.

Bright paper flowers are a great project for the DIY bride and they really make a colouful statement.
