Wonderful!! And I think your idea is a great one - I bet it will look fantastic :):).

You have the best design ideas. I may have to rethink my colors. I love aqua/teal and red but I didn't think of aqua/teal as mexican colors but it sounds great. I think the white would make it look fresh also.

Thanks - that's sweet :):). Technically I guess, aqua/teal aren't "mexican" colors - if you want a true mexican wedding traditionally it's a lot of colors like cobalt blue, fuschia, red, bright yellow, sunset orange ... but, as you can imagine, most people don't really want something so colorful. And, also, keep in mind that Mexico is like the States or Canada - there are regions which some colors and/or "style" is different than other parts of the country (think the difference between a Martha's Vineyard wedding and a Napa Valley Wedding, an Aspen Wedding and a down home Texas wedding).

So, basically, what I'm saying is that I think you can utilize any color combination and give it a "mexican" twist (i.e. perhaps utilizing talavera glasses as favors in your colors, or maracas, or shot glasses, or papel picado, or a piñata, etc.) or any color combination and make it modern, romantic, beachy, etc. depending on HOW you put those elements together :):).

Okay, off soap box now! (haha!!)blah.gif

Utilize chiffon (if you can) because it's sheer yet not stiff (like say tulle) and will look pretty blowing in the wind. If you could utilize aqua/teal chiffon overlays over white tablecloths, that's my biggest suggestion - because, otherwise, white is your primary color and that's what is making some of the photos you are seeing so "modern" in their takes. Depending on your budget, you might also consider a shade of aqua/teal (not the same shade as the overlays - perhaps darker) for napkins and then wrap them with white ribbon and have either a little red bud in the middle OR maybe have placecards with red type. Red flowers interspersed with lanterns for the centerpieces I think would look really great.

Another option, instead of utilizing colored napkins, would be to have aqua/teal maracas with a red design on them as placemarkers - that would look stunning and double as a favor. (we do those btw - check the sept 1st blog when it comes out wink.gifwink.gif).

If you can find an aqua/teal ribbon with a an antique red scroll on it, that would be fab to utilize as accent marks in various places (i.e. perhaps you wrap the middle of a wine glass with the ribbon or the napkins, etc.).

Depending on where you are having your wedding, to have some flowing chiffon fabric (in this case I think white would look better), tied back with aqua/teal ribbon could also help to make things look more romantic and dreamy, as opposed to being so modern.

Just a few ideas.... :):):)
WOW - my head is spinning with these wonderful ideas! I think I want maracas! I PM'd you before I read this.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
