Cinco de Mayo Wedding: The Details

So it's May 4th. Someone told me it's Star Wars Day. "May the fourth be with you." Hardy-har-har. Actually, it took me a quick second to get it. It's still early.

I have to say that besides the ceremony, perhaps my favorite part of a wedding is the details. I love seeing all the things that the bride (or designer) have put together. There are soooo many creative people out there and it's absolutely fabulous to see an inspiration board come to life through the details.

When I was planning my wedding, I think super elaborate wedding details were still on the verge of gaining momentum, so there were not as many resources. And I probably wasn't aware of all the wedding blogs out there. Gosh, that makes me sound old... "Back in my day, when I was wedding planning..." psssh. I got married in 2009. Almost two years ago. But I digress. Details nowadays? They kick some major butt!

I loved these details captured by Caroline Tran:

 Love the Papel Picado with the couple's names!
 Some Mexican sweets complete the theme.

Details from this Rancho Las Lomas wedding in California are gorgeous, coordinated by Joyful Weddings and Events, designed by the fabulous Carissa of JL Designs and cakes by Melody of the Sweet and Saucy Shop, photography by Tara Leigh.

And another gorgeous Mexican inspired wedding shot by Amelia Lyon, designed by Jesi Haack, and sweets by Sweet and Saucy Shop. Love the papel picado as a backdrop for the desserts table.

And pinatas as escort cards?! Love it!

Finally, one of my favorite weddings by Love Ala shot in Mexico! These birdcages hanging from the trees?!

And how adorable is that cake?

The ceremony location is just stunning. I love those large flower pomanders. The perfect touch to the old hacienda setting.

What are your favorite things about weddings?

Tomorrow, I'll be diving into some Cinco de Mayo inspired paper pretties!

Happy Wednesday!
