Unique theme ideas for Mexico weddings

By Guest Blogger Feb 9, 2010 4:10:00 PM

In our experience as destination wedding experts in the Riviera Maya, we have had the opportunity to create some very different and special events. Many couples have come up with creative wedding themes that have been memorable and fun and our wedding coordinators have always accepted the challenge to execute their visions to a tee.

Wedding themes:

This past fall our team put together a ‘Day of the Dead' wedding for a bride of Mexican descent. The chapel at El Dorado Maroma was decorated in bright orange flowers and at the reception skulls and other authentic Mexican decorations gave the party a traditional but still very modern and cool ambiance. We'd like to inspire your wedding planning imagination with this list of wedding themes for a dazzling reception.

  • - Eco- Friendly: If you choose to have your wedding at El Dorado Royale or Casitas, select a menu that includes dishes using vegetables from the hotel's greenhouse. Print invitations on recycled paper and give guests reusable water bottles as wedding favors.
  • - Vintage: Pick antique gold as the main color for your decorations and combine with white and pastel flowers. Style hair in glamorous curls -a lá Grace Kelly - and choose a wedding dress with lace details. Add table cloths with a retro print.
  • - Peacock: Colors to create this theme should be a combination of royal purples, fuchsias, blues and greens. Instead of flowers, use a peacock feathers for the groom and groomsmen's' boutonnieres and add them to the bridal bouquet.
  • - Geek-Chic: Print table cards with your guests' Twitter handles instead of their formal names and create a #hashtag (i.e. #chrisandjulie) so they can share photos and updates of the party with friends and relatives back home. Put a Flip Camera on each table and encourage guests to take short videos to be instantly uploaded on Youtube (and if your new spouse doesn't mind, change your Facebook relationship status at the altar!)

Hope these ideas have sparked your creativity to plan a special reception for your Mexico wedding. Whatever your image for your wedding day is, at El Dorado Resorts and Azul Hotels we are excited turn it into a reality.
