I sort of did this unintentionally. When I started gathering ideas people would say “oh how rustic!” and in my mind I thought “no, it’s Mexican!” I don’t have all of our pictures yet but I just posted a few. The rustic part was more in of the flowers, venue, chairs, over all decor.

I can’t figure out how to post the link but if you go to my profile you wil see the thread I just started!! It’s under “2nd attempt…”

Can you do it with color?  Lots of mexican decorative stuff that I have seen has vibrant colors on it.  Maybe you could use maracas with vibrantly colored artwork on them, and then use those colors in other decor or flower arrangements?  Also, maybe you could use some woven fabric with colors or designs that give off the mexican vibe instead of burlap/etc?  Or paint your mason jars with chalkboard paint that fits in with the color theme?

My advice is to Google San Antonio Fiesta. It’s happening right now and it’s the very best you’re going to see of those decorations. I think ordering some papel picado would be really pretty (they also come in white, which is really chic). You can add sarape prints to places where you’d put a normal linen.

I think it could definitely work. My wedding was at a rustic garden venue, and we added Mexican touches like white papel picado hung from the ceiling, and repujado picture frames for the table numbers. Maybe you can get a Pinterest board going with some inspiration pics of different elements and see how it all looks together.

A friend did a really cute rustic wedding with serape blankets and vividly painted cow skulls.  I can’t remember what all of the details were but the bright colors were so pretty and unique.
