We’re All About the Details!
The Riviera Maya Beach
The inspiration for this wedding was the location. It was a destination wedding in Mexico so they wanted everything to be very beachy. They stuck with shades of blue for the color palette, and local flowers for decor. The ultimate sky themed beach wedding!
Even though this was a beach wedding, they wanted some traditional elements. They noticed a lot of girls going with short sundresses but the bride still wanted the wow factor of a beautiful full length dress. They tried to find something as light as possible knowing the weather was going to be 90 degrees or warmer.
They did the same thing with the groom. They wanted traditional with a beachy flair. They didn’t want shorts or linens so we picked a gray pant and opted for suspenders instead of a tight tie or jacket. Both of them went barefoot to add to the beach theme.
The DIY Bouquet
The bride made the bridesmaids bouquets which were constructed by using flowers that were all local to Riviera Maya.
Take this Advice
Try not to stress! Keep in mind that your wedding day is YOUR wedding day, no one else’s so stay true to yourself and your vision and do what makes you happy! Allow for extra time! The day will come and go in the blink of an eye. It’s important to slow down and take every moment in. Set a timeline with your wedding photographer and put a responsible individual in charge of assuring that everyone is following the timeline. Photographs are forever, so allow extra time to capture those special memories and do not be rushed for time. Skip the tradition and do a ‘first look’. First looks can still be very intimidate and also allows you to not be so rushed for wedding portraits. Your hair and make up are still fresh and it will also allow you to be able to enjoy your wedding reception quicker! ~ Britani Edwards/Photographer
