Color Inspiration: A Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and what better reason than that to post a fun, mexican fiesta wedding! Mexican food may just be my favorite, and the culture and experience that goes along with it is so bright, festive and exciting! There's a lot of color going on in this one! If that's not how you picture your wedding, it would be a fantastic rehearsal dinner too!

You really have to limitation on flowers here. Just make sure they are bold, bright and wow-evoking! I really love the orange, pink, yellow and aqua palette... and do you just love those bridesmaid dresses? Like I said before, not your idea of wedding attire? Gift your 'maids fun mexican-inspired dresses for the rehearsal! This yellow scarf and these awesome barrettes would make great finishing touches!

Now, for the decor and entertainment... you must, must, must have a mariachi band (perfect for cocktail hour!)! Nothing like that music to get your guests pumped for the rest of the evening. This really is ideally set outdoors, with benches for seating, bright flags hanging above and paper flowers in aqua vases! No place setting could be more fit-for-fiesta then this, and of course there has to be margaritas! Why not host a margarita bar, where guests can choose everything from the classic marg to a pomegranate or watermelon concoction!

Happy {early} Cinco de Mayo everyone!
