Board #199 | Cinco de Mayo

I think this inspiration board would work for a destination wedding in Mexico (clearly), or even a wedding or rehearsal dinner at a Mexican restaurant or with a Mexican theme. It could even be translated into a non-wedding party! I love bright, bold colors, and I think that a mostly warm palette makes perfect sense, but here I balanced it with white and an unexpected pale turquoise. Miniature pi├▒atas would be a fun favor, at the kids’ table or for everyone. And this save-the-date by Bird and Banner would definitely set the tone for a fun, Mexican-themed wedding.

Mood: sassy fun
Palette: yellow, red, pale turquoise

    Love this! We eloped and had a big party to celebrate with friends and family. We had a very loose mexican theme including lots of shrine candles,papeles picados hanging everywhere and the best thing….a huge beautiful wedding pinata filled with special treats. This replaced the cake and we each took turns swinging instead of cutting. It was pretty funny.

    I love this inspiration board. It so closely resembles what I’m doing for my own wedding. The main difference is that I’m using a darker blue (like the blue on hand-blown glasses). Love to see this idea!

    This a lovely board. I love that it has a Mexican feel without being themed. The colours are just gorgeous.
