The bridal gown is the most photographed item in the entire wedding. Your gown can have a delicate pattern or even a lace shrug unveiling a beautiful bodice like this gown to keep it traditional and honor those Latin roots you may not even know you have.

Bold colors are in for 2018, so skip that perfect nude lipstick and go for the bright colors which tend to make your lips look fuller. Add a floral crown with blooms matching your bouquet, and ask your florist to begin with a signature flower. Then add greenery such as seeded eucalyptus and fillers like hypericum berries to accentuate the accent flower. It pairs well with an updo like this goddess braid which allows your guests to see your whole gown and your jewelry working in tandem.

Shake up your dinner table with some Southwest accents like succulents that are so unique and great in all seasons. Make your centerpiece like a pineapple: strong on the outside and sweet on the inside. It compliments the bridal bouquet just like the signature cocktail, that doesn’t have to be confined to the bar. Try alcohol-infused cupcakes, too! A hint of lime and a splash of tequila topped with buttercream sure sounds like a dessert to remember. To complete your look, a double barrel Margarita is just the thing.
