Are you noticing a trend in weddings known as Aztec? It’s such an exciting and exotic blend of ancient Mexican patterns and symbols with modern colors and boho influences. Here, we present a slightly glam spin on the whole Aztec inspiration. You still see the vibrant turquoise, rose and copper tones, the wood, feathers and earthenware. But we show how these can be glitzed up to create a new “Aztec glam” style, perhaps?
Aztec-inspired Wedding Ideas for Summer!
Are you fascinated with this earthy, geometric motif but would rather keep it on the understated side? Then we suggest you focus on a few key elements.
The starting point, of course, will be your wedding invitations (4). Give guests a sneak peek of the ceremony and reception ambiance with an invite design featuring the warm colors and distinct patterns of Aztec art.
For your bridal ensemble, consider a maxi sheath dress with lacy crochet inserts, accessorized with copper and turquoise jewelry—finished with a unique Aztec-inspired ring (7). Your bouquet (2) could play up the traditional desert colors via blue and rust flowers, combined with feathers. Consider feather bouts and corsages (6) that are pinned to maps for a lovely DIY element, too!
Then, at the reception, have all eyes on your wedding cake (1)—decorated with Aztec symbols and accented with exotic touches like colorfully painted wood branches. And lay simple but striking runners of gold leaves (5) on each of the guest tables.
Finally, send guests off with mini cacti and succulents in hand-painted clay pots (3) as wedding favors. Charming keepsakes from your unique wedding!
