For this week’s Wedding Wednesday, my inspiration came from this beautiful 1950’s era dress found on The Vintage Wedding Company’s site. To me it evoked childhood memories of growing up in San Diego, experiencing the culture of what was once Mexico. I remember visits to Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala (we locals just called it Mission de Alcala), Old Town, Mexicali, and Tijuana: dancers in brightly colored costumes, intricate papel picado, eating raw peppers (I have been told I have an iron tongue), watching fresh tortillas being made and being taught how to make them, calaveras (skull/skeletons) for Dia de los Muertos, and just the most amazing spirit of joy that was expressed in laughter, bright colors, and family.
In this inspiration board, you will see a vintage dress and vintage decor items. I hope you enjoy!
