BLOG - Nikki & Roland's Vibrant Mexican Wedding!

Recommended Posts

Well, we could point fingers at the computer who wouldn't run the picture dvd and then christmas and new years (those ornery holidays!) and the list could get really long - so, instead, THE BIGGEST EVER CONGRATULATIONS to Nikki & Roland on tying the knot this last December 5, 2009!

*

 

It seemed as though the fates were determined to deter all of Nikki & my plans for fairly easy, relaxed wedding planning. We had decided on Spiaggia way back when because their prices were great and the location was awesome and everything was going to be simple simple simple - to the point that I didn't even do an inspiration board! Of course, ya'all might know by now, but to make a long story short, Spiaggia sold itself (without informing us) and the new location decided to completely reinvent itself (again without informing us) and, thus, either Spiaggia or the new Cherry 7 up and ran off with Nikki's deposit money, each pointing the fingers at each other. Boo!!!

But, after some hot words from all three of us to the locale in question, Nikki took action, found this incredible, amazing villa (Casa Suenos del Mar) who was willing to rent for a night .... and, after all, fate was right, we were wrong, and the wedding turned out much better than we had originally planned for!!

The Bouquet

Nikki had decided to do bright, vibrant colors for her Mexican wedding so we decided on the tones of fuschia and orange with a touch of gold and mixed those colors into her bouquet - it looked great against her dress! Roland's bout followed suit -- good man!

The Ceremony

Well, originally the ceremony was going to be on the sand - so, with the new venue chosen just weeks before the wedding, I had to design something entirely different that would fit the new venue. I quite honestly don't know how this came to me - I knew that I still wanted the vibrant, colorful feel but I didn't want to block the beautiful view or amazing foliage - so we decided to surprise Nikki & Roland with strung roses ... they had originally wanted bougamvilia but that's not something we can order ... we have to "find" it and there wasn't a lot out - in the end, I think this ceremony huppah is one of my all-time favorites....

The Guest Cards

Nikki & Roland had a theme about certain dates meaning certain things to them, so I thought it would be great fun to make guest cards with chosen dates and have guest write their wishes and thoughts on them only to be opened the day on the card! I found this amazing talavera mailbox when I was out and about!

The Maracas

Nikki hearts hearts our maracas, so I wanted to do something extra special. Omar painted the flowers around the entire maraca (sounds easy - is not! wink.gif, and accented their monogram with gold paint - if I had to do it over again, I might add a gold accent to the flower - but pretty nevertheless!

The Centerpieces

We overlayed the tables with a shimmery orange/cream chiffon and filled adobe pinata bases with alternating arrangements of fuschia and orange roses. Colorful candles surrounded the base and alternating fuschia and orange napkins stood-up tall in water glasses - love it!

The Kid's Table

We made little activity books for the kids to work on during dinner, accompanied by a Mexican wooden toy, crayons and a little ornament. Fun!

Candles & Nightscapes

Of course, we peppered the villa with oodles of candles and the villa transformed itself into a magical, romantic evening....

The Cake

Adore this cake .... check out the befores and afters here to see how a fairly monotone colored cake turned into this awesome creation by Memo of Charme! We also surprised Nikki & her daughter with their own individualized cake as they each adored a flavor that wasn't chosen to be "the cake" - we had the waiters bring it out as soon as Nikki & Roland cut the cake and everyone was happy!

Firedancers

They really did a fantastic job - we had floating globes and acrobatics - a really amazing way to end the evening....

DIY

I wanted to also say that Nikki did a great job on some of her DIY projects - she worked with us really closely to make sure that everything done, from start to finish, related and looked "just so" - I think she did a fantastic job!

Next week, barring disasters, we should have the photos up from Sara & Nic's wedding which took place this past saturday in Sayulita! We have a busy season ahead of us, but I have, in my 'spare time' (haha!) been working on some design inspiration boards ... so I will do my best to get those snuck in here somehow (or on facebook!).

    • 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?
