Crossing Cultures: Latin Wedding Ideas

Perhaps you’re a world traveler at heart looking to pay homage to alternative cultures or maybe you’re marrying someone with a different background. Whatever the case may be, there are endless ways to incorporate a foreign flare to give your wedding a one-of-a-kind twist. For instance, if you’re interested in incorporating a Latin American feel, there are so many diverse and vibrant countries that offer no shortage of inspiration. Getting to know the cultures of this region is a good place to start getting Latin wedding ideas.

One of the most notable aspects that sets the region apart would be their use of lively colors. You can apply your vibrant color palette to your  floral arrangements, fabric choices, centerpieces, etc. For example, to capture a Peruvian vibe, you can use a bright Incan fabric pattern as a table runner or as a shawl. If you want to create a Mexican theme, there are many traditional Mexican decorations from which to choose such as Talavera tiles, Otomi fabrics, and “Papel Picado” (pecked paper).

Choosing native floral arrangements and plants can be a more subtle way to give your wedding Latin flare. For instance, succulents are common in Mexico and can be used to enhance your theme. Using lush, tropical plants can create a tropical Brazilian atmosphere.
