How about a Mexican theme for your SETX wedding?

Southeast Texas weddings often reflect a mix of the cultures that make up the Golden Triangle. Southeast Texas brides often incorporate elements of their Cajun, Hispanic, or cowboy heritage.

Mexican food, music, and culture have really been making a transition into the daily lives of Southeast Texans- and Southeast Texas weddings.

If you’d like to include a little bit of Old Mexico – or Tex Mex- into your Southeast Texas wedding, there are many local Southeast Texas businesses that can help you.

Infuse your wedding with flavor, Mexican style.

A Mexican ambience mixes a little bit of culture with a whole lot of fun for Southeast Texas weddings and receptions. Imagine instrumental guitar, old lace, candles, palm trees, and calla lilies.

For the reception, appetizers can include empanadas, shrimp with mango salsa, and/or a rich corn or tortilla soup.

The most popular entrée at Southeast Texas Mexican themed weddings is fajitas, often a mix of beef, chicken, and our world class Gulf of Mexico shrimp. Our Southeast Texas fajitas are typically served with guacamole, a variety of salsas, onions (fresh and/or grilled), and jalapenos.

Easy desserts include Mexican wedding cookies, flan, tres leches cake, or a contemporary  twist, sopapilla cheesecakeMexican Wedding Cookies

At the bar, offer margaritas, top shelf tequilas like Milagro, 1800, or Patron. Popular Mexican beers include Corona, Dos Equis, and Modelo Negro.

For the after party, hire a Mariachi band for dancing and a piñata for the kids filled with Mexican candies and toys.

Décor can be as typical as Tex-Mex restaurant decorations or as simple as a rustic, Mexican town square decorated in stucco colors and wrought iron accents.

Accent your table cards, menu, or table numbers with Spanish wording; instead on #1 use Número Uno. Almost everyone knows basic words such as Gracias and 1-10 in Spanish or super easy words that almost look like their English counterparts like fabuloso and súper.

Don’t just think Tex-Mex, because Mexico is a huge area with various regions that differ in feel and culture.  Do a little research and ask local vendors and caterers what all the options are from subtle touches to Old Town Mexico to Tropical/ Caribbean Beach zest. Find valuable information from the following SETX gurus and pull off a wedding with nuances of culture or a full blown theme.

Your Southeast Texas caterer can often assist you beyond the menu when planning a Mexican themed wedding- ask them about decorations, music, and any other item where their experience can help you make decisions.
