Destination weddings can be a fun getaway for everyone, but most brides want to keep the celebration tasteful and stylish at the same time. For destination brides who wed in Mexico, finding a balance between the bright, traditional fiesta colors and the chic look they have in mind can require some creativity!

We did a fun wedding here at the Melia Cabo Real last year where we designed the bride’s vision of lively Mexican flair via bold yet classy wedding décor. Canadian wedding planner Jennifer Bergman says this particular bride wanted a striking, colorful palette that was still refined for her destination wedding.

Bergman states, “The bride and groom wanted a very bright and bold wedding that was still elegant and tasteful. They wanted a very fun wedding so their guests could relax and enjoy the experience.”

For this lovely outdoor reception, we used the bride’s choice of teal for the table linens. This shantung fabric with a bit of sheen keeps the look modern and trendy. When working with bold hues, it’s important not to go overboard, so the teal was used exclusively on the tables and the bright pink strategically used as an accent.

A unique detail about this décor was the chair ties, which were custom-made in a two-tone shade to add a bit more depth (versus the customary monotone ties). The floral arrangements were also multi-colored, which is an easy way to embrace the “fiesta” vibe if your own color palette is more subdued.

No matter what colors you use in your destination wedding, if you’re getting married here in Cabo, then you and your guests are sure to feel the positive energy and welcoming nature of the Mexican culture. ¡Viva México!
