Posted by in Our Designs

Imbue You Mexican wedding reception stationery set

Our latest ceremony and reception wedding stationery set captures the creativity of Mexican handcrafts with a talavera tile print. And with custom colors and fonts, you can create the look you want from soft and romantic to colorful and bold.

With each of our designs, Justin and I love to offer an authentic nod to traditional cultural design but in a modern way. This is a lush, intricate print with enough design to handle 2 to 4 colors. So it’s really easy to make it a true reflection of your wedding.

See more details on how to make it your own here. Or see more of our full stationery sets here.

Here’s an in-depth look at the ceremony and reception set.

Mexican Wedding Inspiration: Vintage Folk

Posted by in Create the Look

Destination weddings in Mexico are a beautiful experience. And if you would like that experience to have a more homespun, romantic feeling, consider Vintage Folk Mexican Wedding inspiration.

For Mexican Vintage Folk, think authentic Mexican folk or art pieces, peasant dresses, lots of flowers, some rustic flair, handmade touches and lots of color.

This wedding altar above is a great example the Vintage Folk style. The flowers have a handmade feel, and they are paired with wood. The colors are also very joyous {Photo by Daisy Varley Photography via Elizabeth Anne Designs}

Peasant Dresses

You can incorporate peasant dresses with a bridal gown, your bridesmaids or flower girl. For a more fun and funky feeling go with the traditional embroidery and more colorful look. For a more classic or romantic look you can opt for the shape of a peasant dress in lighter shades or white, like the flower girl dress above on the left.

Flowers

Flowers really do complete a Mexican vintage folk style. Vary the flower types and colors for a true vintage folk look, or sprinkle flowers in new ways throughout your wedding. Floral cookies, for instance, would make adorable favors.

Touches of Mexico

A Mexican vintage folk wedding theme is really about celebrating Mexican culture, and finding ways to incorporate it into your own love story.  Vintage finds and Spanish sayings can decorate your reception decor. And one of my favorite touches is shaking maracas at the first kiss, or to make the couple kiss at the reception. It could even be a fun send off.

Beach Wedding Destination Theme: Mexican Hacienda

Posted by in Create the Look, Wedding

hacienda wedding venue

I love Mexican beach theme weddings. There are so many design ideas and options. If you are looking for more Mexican than beach in your wedding theme and want a romantic feeling, consider a Mexican or Spanish Hacienda wedding theme.

For a hacienda theme think Old World meets rustic with a splash of Mexican and Spanish culture. Colors are more muted, like terra cotta, creamy yellows, natural greens, soft blues and wood tones.

Venue: Architecture and Old World details establish a hacienda feeling. If you are getting married on the beach, or your venue doesn’t have archways and wood beams, consider creating a canopy for your ceremony or reception. {Venue: Valentin Imperial Maya in Mexico}

Invitations and Wedding Stationery: Your stationery is a great place to add the cultural component of your wedding. Think classic cultural arts and details, such as talavera tile and lace. And don’t forget to give your guests plenty of planning information. {Invitations by Imbue You}

Wedding Dress: There are a few ways to give a nod to your hacienda wedding theme with your wedding gown. One way is to go very Old World, with beading and exquisite details. Another is to go simpler with a more New World Mexican peasant dress vibe. And yet another is to split the difference, for instance a peasant dress shape with Old World details like lace. {Dress by J’Aton Couture via Bride to Be; Photo via Live Breathe Fashion; Photo via Green Wedding Shoes; Photo via Fashion Served}

The Details: For a hacienda theme ceremony and reception think intimate, rustic and drought resistant. Hacienda locations in the New World can be harsh after all. Succulents and wildflowers make great bouquets and table centerpieces. And nothing says family and friends like a long wooden farm table. {Bouquet via Belle the Magazine; Cake by Sweet and Saucy Shop; Rustic farm table via Oh Lovely Day}

Ethnic and Theme Save the Date Common Questions

Posted by in Ask Imbue You, Wedding

ganesh save the date postcard

In many ways, ethnic fusion or theme weddings can be easier to make design decisions for. But sometimes it just opens up new questions. Save the dates are often the first stationery design couples deal with, and so there are a lot of questions. I hope to answer some of them here.

Should I choose save the dates that match my theme?

If you’ve chosen a theme you love, or know you want to celebrate certain cultures during your wedding, definitely find a way to include that on your save the date. In addition to being a practical piece with the date of your wedding, save the dates can be a signal of what’s to come from your wedding. Plus it’s more fun that way, right?

Indian Block Bookmark

{Indian block print bookmark handmade save the date}

Do my save the dates have to match my invitation design?

No, actually.  So many couples make their own save the dates or go on a long search for just the right invitations. So the save the dates end up being different.

But if you do care about a cohesive look to your wedding stationery, you can tie some things together, such as colors. Also if you have a strong theme or cultural influence for your designs, your later invitation design will end up referencing  what you did in the save the date, without it having to be an exact match. And of course if you really want them to be the same, simply use the same designer for both.

I’m doing a more traditional or formal wedding. Do my save the dates have to match that?

This can be a toughie. As I mentioned earlier, save the dates can be a signal of what’s to come. So sending out a hipster cool save the date for a traditional wedding may confuse your guests. That being said, save the dates can be more fun than your invitations or your actual wedding. For traditional or formal weddings, try a personal approach in your save the dates to liven them up, such as photos.

beach save the date folded

I have travel and event information. Do I put that on the save the date?

There are a few ways to handle additional information for elaborate, destination or Indian weddings. One is to simply include a wedding website and have the additional information there. Another is to do a folded or long-form save the date to include the information early. If you have many older or less tech savvy guests, you may opt for a folded save the date. Or additional cards and inserts sent with your wedding invitation.

When do I send save the dates?

Try to aim for 6 to 8 months before your wedding, especially for destination weddings or when many guests live out of town. That will give them enough time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements. Typically save the dates are mailed a few months ahead of the invitation.

Have other save the date questions, not answered here? You can ask them in comments. See more ethnic fusion and theme save the date designs.

Rich Mexico Wedding Color Palette: Red, Brown, Gold and Ivory

Posted by in Real Palettes

mexican tile wedding invitation set

Sometimes the designs and formats we’ve created are just a guide.

That was the case when Heather came to us earlier this winter wanting to create invitations for her destination wedding in Mexico. We ended up taking our tile design, turning it into a booklet, and putting some custom touches on it along the way.

For an even more custom look, we created matching invitation and RSVP stamps.

I love her rich palette of red, brown and marigold on ivory paper. It’s also a great color combination for winter weddings, or to communicate warmth or a lavish wedding.

We’re really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?
