Colorful Wedding Fiesta

A colorful ethnic-inspired fiesta is an incredibly fun wedding theme, whether you're having a destination wedding, or are the type of bride who wants to plan a vibrant wedding with a bit of whimsy!
Guests will remember your day for years to come, and one of the best things about this Fiesta theme is that it is very simple to achieve and is great for a bride on a budget.

Food and Drink
Bypass a traditional sit down dinner and go for a casual dining option. Rent an authentic food stand, where guests can choose their favorite Mexican food. Burritos, tacos...the options are delicious and endless!
In keeping with the theme, serve colorful margaritas and keep it simple again by renting a margarita machine and hire someone to run the machine for you.
Serve chips with salsa and guacamole for a pre-dinner snack option.
Mexican wedding cookies are an adorable wedding favor or a late night snack. There are tons of recipes that can be found online to make these yourself.

Tall cocktail rounds look fabulous draped in colorful fabric and bright Mexican style blankets. We love the idea of traditional Mexican paper flowers for bouquets or as floral arrangements in antique looking cans. Mexican flowers are simple to make, add tons of color and certainly won't cost a fortune!
Add mini maracas and other little Mexican inspired items that will work with your theme!

Download some music onto your ipod that will have guests dancing all night, or spend a bit of money for some Mexican dancers who will light up your wedding with their traditional costumes and energy!

Little Details
From wedding invitations to your wedding dress, don't be afraid of color! The invitations pictured above really set the tone for your day. Be ravishing in a deep red gown, rather than the traditional white dress.

With any Mexican Fiesta wedding theme, you can be as colorful, vibrant and inspired as you like and it will come together beautifully. Perfect for a small budget and for the bride who wants her wedding to be fun and memorable!
