Cinco de Mayo is a colorful celebration that rejoices in Mexico’s victory over France. Celebrating your wedding on this day or even just having a Cinco de Mayo flavored wedding is something that is not only fund and creative, but it will be a party that your guests won’t soon forget.
Have fun with your wedding cake. Bright colors and elaborate Mexican patterns are best. If you are really adventurous create a cactus cake or a cake that has a wraparound of colorful red, white, and green flowers.
Bright colors work best. Tie the back of your chairs with colorful tulle. Pick one bright color or go with a multi-colored rainbow theme. Create a wedding cake piñata that resembles your wedding cake. Place hand-painted maracas at each of your guest tables as part of your centerpieces. Your guest will be sure to love them.
For your wedding dress, think of incorporating a lot of lace. Big, colorful flowers in your hair will complete the look. Think Frida Kahlo. For the bridesmaid dresses, try traditional Mexican dresses. These white dresses can be off set with colorful bridesmaid bouquets.
The best way to go is traditional Mexican cuisine. You can create a build-your-own taco bar or you can go with chile rellenos or fajitas. For dessert you add a churro station with a slew of fun dips for your guests to try out.
