En Español

An easy idea for your fiesta themed wedding is to use Spanish. From table numbers to simple phrases on welcome signs, a little Español helps to incorporate your theme in the smaller details.

Bright & Bold

We love a lot about fiesta weddings, but our very favorite thing is the loud and vibrant color palettes. Full of bright, juicy hues, the colors work perfectly during summertime.

Courtyard Venues

While you can have a Spanish-influenced wedding anywhere, courtyard patios play well with this theme. String lights around your papel picado, and your fiesta can last until the wee hours of the morning.

Loteria Cards

Loteria cards are often mistaken for tarot cards. They are actually the cards for a Mexican version of bingo. With colorful and eclectic designs on each one, they make a captivating wedding detail. Use them as escort cards, table numbers, and cake table decor.

Playful Pinatas

Pinata details are among the most popular at a fiesta themed wedding. Fill a traditional pinata with candy and bash it open at the reception, or simply use pinata-inspired decor throughout your event. We've seen everything from miniature pinatas at each place setting as favors to creating a pinata as a guest book alternative.

Papel Picado

Papel picado is the garland made up of cut-out tissue paper flags that you've seen at countless fiesta events. Usually in bright colors, it can also be personalized with your names and wedding dates.

Frankly, it's not a party until someone puts on a sombrero. This brilliant couple chose to capitalize on sombrero fun with a genius backdrop to their dessert table.

Sangria Bar

If you want your party to have more South of the Border influence, serve margaritas. But if you want it to have a Spanish spin, create a sangria bar instead. For the hottest months, consider making your sangria with white wine instead of red.
