Going a little "south of the border" for your unique wedding reception may be a great idea when you want to receive your guests in a festive atmosphere.
A Mexican theme wedding is all about joyful colors and fun. Starting with the location, you can make your dream wedding come true.
If you settled for a Mexican theme wedding, you can go for a Spanish-style house or you can organize the wedding at your place, if you have a spacious garden.
Also, tradition is the name of the game.
There are many Mexican traditions that you can integrate in your wedding, like the romantic part, when the maid of honor and the best man put a rope over the newly married couple to show that they now become one undivided entity.
Part of tradition can be instilled in your Mexican theme wedding by the music played. Usually, the members of the family start the dance night with La Marcha and fiesta goes on till morning, with cumbias, corridas, meringue and so on. You will love the energy this music gives you and your guests!
When you plan the decorations, remember to design everything in bright, vivid colors, and do not hesitate to use orange or turquoise. When you send out the invitations for your wedding, give your guests hints that this is going to be a Mexican theme wedding, by replacing the word ‘reception’ with ‘fiesta’, and ‘Mr.’ and ‘Ms.’ and ‘Mrs.’, with ‘Senor’, ‘Senora’ and ‘Senorita’.
Your fiesta wedding will not be complete without the food. So put on the tables, some tortillas, enchiladas and the traditional biscochos, which are the well known Mexican wedding cookies. Be sure that with all these traditional Mexican foods, your wedding reception will be well spicy!
Do not forget about the dress! A wedding’s gown must also reflect the bountiful of colors. Also, the girl with the flower and the boy with the ring must be dressed as the bride and the groom.
Family members, if they want, can dress up in Mexican fashion to complete the general effect. Putting some of the Mexican traditions in your wedding or all that you can think of is up to you. Either way, you will impress your guests with your Mexican theme wedding!
