This incredible colorful Mexico beach wedding, is so vibrant and full of joy, it completely captures the rich history of Mexican culture.
After dating for 6 years, Kali and Chase knew that they wanted to plan a wedding that would be one for the record books. As they searched for the right venue, the two realized there was only one place where endless fun could be had, and that was Cabo.

While putting together the look of her wedding, Kali felt like no three colors could really capture the bright and colorful theme that she wanted, so she decided to throw caution to the wind and used them all. Inspired by the bright colors of Mexican heritage, Kali begin to piece together a wedding that was as vibrant and bright as the love she shared with her fiancé.

Once Kali met Lisa George, she knew that she had met the perfect photographer for her big day. They coordinated the travel arrangements, and Lisa and Kali pieced together a game plan for Kali’s south of the border wedding. Throughout the entire trip, Lisa kept Kali at ease by keeping ahead of the wedding, and making sure that all details were handled so Kali could enjoy her big day.

The bridesmaids wore long coral chiffon gowns that featured beautiful floral detailing along the shoulder. The dresses were bright and effervescent, much like the lovely women who wore them. While the bridesmaids looked lovely, Kali was the true gem in her breathtaking gown.

Going against the tradition of simple gowns for beach weddings, Kali wore a full ball gown which featured an intricate design of ruffles covering the entire skirt. The ruffles perfectly captured the beauty of the ocean, with its ruffles that looked like elegant waves all along Kali’s gown.

The fashion didn’t stop with the bridal party, each groomsmen was the vision of effortless beach style with gray trousers, simple white shirts, and classic navy ties. Much like his bride, Chase was the standout of his party. Channeling his inner Justin Timberlake, Chase wore a non-traditional navy suit with a classic gray tie.

Once the formalities were through, the wedding party was ready to dance the night away, and they kicked off the celebration with a traditional Mexican welcome from a Mariachi band.

The reception was a vision in pinks, purples, yellows, oranges, and greens. Each table featured a breathtaking arrangement of bright blooms that captured the colorful fiesta theme. The party really started once the band began to entertain the guests, and soon everyone was on the dance floor.

The evening ended with a late night dip in the pool for many of the guests, and with the newlyweds capturing a few last moonlit pictures so that they could forever remember their perfect night.

The fashion in this wedding really tied the entire look together, with the bridesmaids wearing mismatched blush dresses, varying in lengths, necklines, and shapes. We love that the bride chose to keep each girl in the same fabric, because even though the gowns are mismatched they still have a cohesive and beautiful look. The mismatched style also allows for each bridesmaid to choose a dress that really fits her and makes her feel beautiful, as any bridesmaid should.

4 Rules for Choosing Statement Necklaces for Bridesmaids

 4rules

We absolutely love the idea of choosing over-the-top statement necklaces and accessories to take a simple classic bridesmaid dress, and turn it into a completely fun and fresh look. Follow our four rules to choosing the perfect statement necklace, and your girls will be so thrilled to rock those vibrant baubles down the aisle.

 4rules

 4rules

• Quality VS Cost
• When you’re buying jewelry for a gaggle of girls, even the most affordable of statement jewelry can start to look pricey. But before you go choosing that clearance necklace that’s missing a couple stones, remember that your bridesmaids are going to set the stage for you to walk down the aisle. If the prices are really hurting your pocketbook, check out daily deal sites like GroopDealz.com or Jane.com to find rock bottom prices on quality pieces.
• Color
• While neon yellow and cobalt blue are a killer combination for statement necklaces, this may not be the perfect fit for the style of your wedding. Before you choose the necklaces out, grab a swatch from your color scheme and see how the necklace fits it. This doesn’t mean it has to be the exact color or even shade, but it does need to be complementary to your existing color scheme.
• Neckline Interference
• Before you completely commit to necklaces for everyone, make sure that they won’t interfere with the neckline of the gorgeous dresses you chose for them. The worst thing that can happen when you’re rocking a darling necklace is that it keeps falling inside your dress or it won’t lay flat. Try and do a test run with one of the necklaces with a bridesmaid, or at least consult one of the many online guides of necklace lengths, and where they hit.
• Comfort Level
• Our final tip is to choose necklaces that are not only cute, but that are also comfortable. As a connoisseur of statement jewelry I know very well that sometimes the cutest of pieces can rub my neck the wrong way or even worst, leave me with a rash! So, before you set your heart on any necklace where it around the store for a little while and walk around in it, to make sure you’re choosing some that’s both comfy and cute!
