Wedding Fiesta: Cinco de Mayo Design Inspirations!

Happy Humpday!!

Who doesn’t love a great party, or shall we say fiesta? Cinco de Mayo is this week (thankfully on a Friday) and that means endless margaritas, chips & of course guacamole! We at Marisa Nicole Events are pretty much obsessed with Cinco de Mayo styled celebrations since this holiday is all about being playful with colors and giving a nod to all things Mexican through details and food. In honor of this day of fun and flair, we’re sharing some of our favorite ideas for a Cinco de Mayo themed wedding.

Ceremony with Maracas

Have your guests shake some maracas once walk down the aisle as and officially married couple!

Escort Cards

Start the night off right with tequila shots for all. This is probably one of our favorite ideas for place cards. Your guests will love the fun right from the start of the reception!

Tablescape

When creating your Cinco de Mayo inspired tablescape think color and color and more color! You can practically incorporate the whole rainbow (paired with neutrals)! Also add a patterned runner. Oh and you cannot forget the cactus and succulents.

Drinks

Margaritas, beer, and tequila… need I say anymore? We love the idea of having a margarita or sangria bar with different flavors for your guests to try. And who wouldn’t get excited about a high-end tequila tasting bar? We encourage you to let loose and have fun with your drinks. For a vibrant, playful styled wedding, cutesy accessories are not only appropriate, but encouraged!

Photobooth

Have your photo booth props stay with the fiesta theme. Sombreros, pinatas, maracas are all a great choice!

Dessert

We at Marisa Nicole Events love sweets… especially anything fried! A warm cinnamon churro served with melty chocolate is the perfect way to end the celebration on a high note (other dulces will do the trick as well… we don’t discriminate when it comes to desserts).

Wedding Favors

For your favors, keep with the hot, mexican theme with some hot sauce! Let people bring the heat for future meals.

Remember if you are planning a fiesta, Cinco de Mayo themed wedding to just have fun with it! It is all about the colors and playfulness! In the midst of all this vibrancy, do remember to pair all these fab hues with neutral tones, to keep your overall aesthetic simultaneously grounded and elevated. We wish you all a fun and fabulous Cinco de Mayo filled with endless margs and guac!
