Mexican and Spanish Tile Wedding Inspiration

Posted by in Create the Look

It’s no secret that I love tile inspired design. Our very first design that launched our wedding stationery business was inspired by centuries old Persian tile architecture. And Justin and I continue to reinterpret tile in new invitation designs.

With the popularity of weddings featuring tile work, Mexican weddings, Spanish weddings, Moroccan weddings, I wanted to share some ideas for incorporating it in your wedding.

{Designer Secret}  The joy of tile is that they are different, from other design elements and often from each other. So while it makes sense to coordinate your tile designs, don’t feel compelled to have everything match exactly. One element of the tile design on your stationery can be on the cake or table numbers, for instance. Or you can choose different tile designs with the same color scheme.

I love these ways of incorporating real tiles into weddings. And using tile house numbers (3rd photo) as table numbers…genius! You can even paint table numbers yourself for a personalized and cost saving approach.

Changing the colors can easily change the tone of tiles at your wedding. Couples often ask me if they can do tiles with their romantic themed Mexican wedding. And I say yes. It’s all in the color scheme: pinks, yellows, oranges, corals, lavender. The key to a romantic look with these colors on tile is low contrast. So pick colors that naturally flow together.
