Rustic Mexican-Inspired Wedding Ideas

With Cinco de Mayo next week, we tend to think of big, bold colors as lime green margaritas and fresh red salsa decorate our favorite Mexican restaurants' tables. Contrary to popular belief that it's an Independence Day celebration, Mexican Americans and nationals are actually commemorating the Mexican army's underdog victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Still a cause for hurra nonetheless!

And it's no secret we are huge fans of wedding traditions from all over the world, so we are excited to share this rustic and romantic Mexican-inspired wedding! Soft colors of terra cotta and succulent anchor this stylized shoot from Just Dandy Events and Andrew & Tianna Photography as they are beautifully set against the old world ambiance of the Planter's Club of Suffolk.

With Spanish-inspired carved dark and white wooden furniture from Paisley and Jade accented with fresh limes, vegetables, quirky cacti, and other fauna from C&J Floral Design alongside a creamy simple cake from Sweet Emma Lou and a bride styled with a ruffled wedding gown from Maya Couture, intricate braiding by High Voltage Hair, and soft, romantic makeup by Beauty & Baubles, it helps tell the story of a bride and groom paying homage to heritage, weddings, and each other.

Drawing ideas from the traditional Mexican folk art papel picado (or laser cut) and other sweet Spanish phrases and words, Water's Edge Design paints a visual in signage and The Girl Tyler brings in the perfect stationery touch to one very popular wedding detail displayed at Mexican weddings and other important life events!

Overall, it's a gorgeous blend of Mexican, Spanish, and indigenous aesthetics right here in Hampton Roads!
