It’s 12.21.12 and you’re planning your up coming wedding. Why not create a Mayan themed wedding celebration?

Mayans wedding traditions are rich with cultural significance and opens the a wide window to incorporate rich color into your decor. Although the traditional Mayan wedding is rustic in comparison to weddings of today, as you learn more about the tradition, I’m sure you’ll find many ways to incorporate a little Mayan into your modern wedding day celebration. Ajua Weddings does a remarkable job of giving an overview of the traditional Mayan wedding ceremony and celebrations. You can read about it here. Make notes and let’s plan!

Here’s what we came up with.

You don’t have to set your Mayan themed wedding with a beach backdrop. Select a hacienda inspired location. A great alternative would be The Bell Tower on 34th Street. The bright LED lit stone water wall area would be a delicious option. The draping of the papel picado banners would work beautifully here. There’s so many possibilities to incorporate modern touches into a Mayan themed wedding setup.
