Sunday is the fifth of May, which means it is Cinco de Mayo. The fifth of May commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France in the Franco-Mexican War. In the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a day to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage. When I think of a Cinco de Mayo inspired wedding I immediately think of the bright, bold colors that are characteristic of the streets of Sayulita. I love the idea of combining these bright, bold colors with more romantic and delicate details like that of the traditional Papel Picado banners featured in Mexican wedding celebrations. Whatever your plans may be for this weekend, I hope you enjoy the Cinco de Mayo inspiration below.
