Fiesta Themed Wedding Ideas
Get ready for some incredible fiesta-themed wedding ideas that we know you're going to love- featuring a bold color palette, a DIY pom pom garland ceremony backdrop, maraca wedding favors, and a Papel Picado table runner. We were able to source most of the items for you, so that you can use this post as your go-to for your fiesta-themed event.
All this colorful fiesta magic took place at The Barn at Swallows Eve. There are multiple distinct event areas on 35 acres of land, many of which can include fireplaces, water fountains, pergolas, and or an open-air chapel. This is the event space for a fiesta-themed wedding.
Besides all the crafty colorful fiesta themed decor, you'll also want to note the signature wedding cocktails, a Mexican Michelada, and a Pineapple Mojito. You bet we provided the recipes.
Bridal Earrings & Shoes
Colorful Fiesta details are used throughout, down to the bridal details. Including the bride's beautiful big earrings from Treasure Jewels. You can see the exact earrings here. Treasure Jewels has so many cute earrings and accessories that you need to check out. I am in love with these rainbow earrings.
The floral print shoes are the perfect bridal shoes for this fiesta-themed wedding. Sadly these Jessica Simpson embroidered pumps are no longer available, but you know Jessica has so many other cute pumps that are perfect for your wedding.
DIY POM POM BACKDROP
Event planner, Bianca Nichole Events and the florist, The Petal Post, worked together to create the DIY pom-pom and streamer garland for the ceremony site.
If you'd like to create something like this for yourself, you will need the below items. You will then, artistically drape your garland and the crepe paper around your copper ceremony backdrop. You can find a copper backdrop like this one at Bobs General Store.
1. Fiesta Pom Pom Garland from Yalis and Yabos Crochet it is $16.11
2. Colorful Crepe Paper you can buy an assorted variety on Amazon for $12.99
4. 2 potted cactus
DIY FAUX CACTUS
Escort Card DISPLAY
How smart is this cactus escort card frame? Which was beautifully created by Cottonwood Print. We are so incredibly lucky that they shared with us how to do this fantastic DIY project, wondering how the leaves look so perfect? They are from a pulled apart faux cactus plant. Each guest's name was written on a cactus pad with a white acrylic paint pen and the table number.
You could use their same concept with a faux palm leaf, artificial maple leaf, faux turtle leaf, or buy a variety of tropical palm leaves from Amazon.
We love how they brightened the display by scattering bright florals throughout the frame.
Lattice Frame or anything you can slip or glue the faux leaves/pads into

Fiesta Themed Favors
Cottonwood Print created menu cards and drink menus that incorporated both Spanish and English. The maracas were personalized with each guest's name that served as both a place card for guests and a take-home favor. Guests could use the maracas as their send-off item at the end of the night.
Mesa Chic has almost everything you need for your Fiesta Wedding. Ohh, my gosh, this store is so cute. From the Papel Picado Table Runners to the authentic maracas, they have you covered.
One of the items I am eyeing is the Mexican fabric striped napkins. They have officially been added to my cart. Another thing that I am loving is the Spring Fiesta party pack, so perfect for a Fiesta themed bridal shower.
Who doesn't love a signature cocktail? To continue with the fiesta theme, offer guests a Mexican Michelada and a Pineapple Mojito. I'd want one of each. Don't worry, we found out how to make both, just in case you want to try one for yourself.
