You don't have to be Mexican to enjoy a Mexican-themed wedding. In fact, the colorful, joyous celebration of a Mexican wedding makes a "south of the border" ceremony that much more special. Whether you're planning a beach wedding or a quiet, chapel service, adding a few traditional Mexican touches will enhance your ceremony.
For instance, consider wearing a traditional white, cotton, embroidered Mexican wedding dress with a lace veil ("mantilla"). The groom might wear a matador's costume (bolero jacket, white shirt, and tight, black pants) or a white, cotton, Mexican wedding shirt.
Other Mexican touches include adding mariachi music, serving a Mexican meal complete with sangria after the wedding, and hanging a traditional paper mache "pinata" at the reception.
The best way to ensure that all of the wedding details are perfect is to enlist the assistance of a destination wedding planner. Not only will this professional help take most of the stress out of planning your wedding, but their years of experience and number of contacts can add special touches to your ceremony that you wouldn't even have thought of. The best part: their services are free to you. They are paid by the hotels and services they recommend.
