Jose Villa Mexico Workshop Red Coral Pink Bouganvilla Tablescape

This is an image from Jose’s Workshop in Mexico last fall. (If you’re a photographer I hear there are still a few seats open for this year’s if you hurry! Totally worth it!!!) One challenge you may have already run into if you’re planning a wedding in Mexico and many other destinations…..there are very limited flower and decor options compared with getting married here in the states. So what’s a girl to do? Work with what you’ve got! In this case we brought a few packable items from the states–some linens from La Tavola,¬†and custom wooden menus and place cards from Paloma’s Nest–and then found the rest locally.

We went a few days early to a local market and found the blown glass cylinders and little pink clay whistles. Then the day of, I went around and clipped bougainvillea and ti-leaves from the grounds and wrapped a few hot pink leaves around the votives with twine. Just be sure to do the bougainvillea last since they wilt fairly quickly.

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
