In this blog post, the author shares their experience of planning and having their wedding, with a focus on the vision they had for the day. They wanted an intimate celebration in Mexico with their closest family and friends, incorporating lush greenery, papel picado, and moody tropical flowers. After finding the perfect venue, everything fell into place quickly. On the day of the wedding, they had a great time, taking photos around town and enjoying the ceremony and reception with their loved ones. The author's top tip for future brides is to make the wedding their own and not get too caught up in the opinions of others.

Hannah looked absolutely lovely in the Viola gown by Wtoo. This fit-and-flare gown features six different lace motifs, strategically placed to accentuate the figure. The bodice has a beautiful v-neckline, comfortable straps, and an illusion back with buttons down the spine. A dramatic train completes this beautiful wedding gown.

By our real bride, Hannah:

What was the vision for your wedding?

We wanted an intimate wedding, where we could celebrate with our closest family and friends...preferably with a margarita in hand! Since we decided to get married in Mexico, I really wanted to embrace that aesthetic, with lots of lush greenery, papel picado, and moody tropical flowers. I was very picky about finding a venue with the perfect vibe, so once that was checked off the list, the rest fell into place pretty quickly.

How did it go the day-of?

It went well! We had a blast taking photos around town, and the ceremony and reception went by in a flash. Everyone had a great time.

What is your #1 tip to future brides?

Make it yours! It's easy to get caught up in the opinions of others, but at the end of the day, it's YOUR wedding. So, if you want a giant bash, make it happen. If eloping is more your style, go for it. If you want churros instead of cake, no one's stopping you!
