Inspired: Salud!*

{wedding candy}

*Spanish for, Cheers!

Okay.  It's starting to really feel like summer.  I say, what better way to welcome it than with a laid-back, Mexican fiesta-inspired bash?

Start with a bold palette and add some lacy white details for good measure.  I love the thought of a bright bouqet against your crisp white dress!  Flowy skirts for you and your bridesmaids will fit right in with a casual vibe.  Oh, and don't forget a few colorful accents, too!

 Pick up the fiesta vibe for your reception, too, with colorful or silvery tableware, pretty lanterns, and elaborate paper decorations (bonus: those babies come nice and cheap).  Keep things simple and solid (maybe white?) to keep the whole shindig from feeling like a costume party.  Best of all, practically every Latin American country is Catholic, so those votive candles with icons on them would be a perfect centerpiece (I found these ones that aren't as gaudy as usual)!  Here's an idea: accompany the candles with nice pens and slips of paper, asking your guests to write down a prayer for the two of you or an intention of their own that you can pray for.  So much more personal than a guest book, and a phenomenal way to give thanks for everyone who comes to celebrate with you.

Oh, and one more thing: I've been seeing these oversized, tassled balloons all over the place lately.  Isn't this one so perfectly festive?  I feel like it'd fit this sort of theme exactly!
