Mexican Wedding

Today is Cinco de Mayo, which of course means that today's inspiration board is Mexican-themed! Bright colors reminiscent of the sun and sand, invitations that feature Mexico, fans and margaritas to keep the guests cool, a mariachi band, Mexican paper flowers for the bouquet, traditional luminaries incorporated into the centerpieces, Mexican wedding cookies as favors and a reception on the beach are all possible elements of a fun, Mexican-themed wedding or a destination wedding in Mexico. I went with a warm, vibrant color scheme of red, orange, yellow and gold, naturally.
