In need of some vitamin sea? Then Amanda & Nick's Blue Venado beach wedding in Mexico is just what the doctor ordered. White sands, a white dinner jacket, and minimalistic white wedding decor & flowers make this intimate celebration a dream. The outdoor ceremony overlooks the ocean, with a giant wooden arch framing the nuptials. Plus, there is an abundance of candles and discos balls decorating the palapa hut during the reception - it's like they are dining and dancing under the stars. Add coconut drink wedding favours, satin black bridesmaid dresses and a romantic tulle mermaid wedding dress, and consider us spent. What a vision, what a couple, and what a wedding.

Modern Blue Venado beach wedding with white wedding flowers, disco balls and candles.

I chose my suppliers by doing my research through the magic of social media and the internet, I reached out to brides that had their wedding in Tulum/Riviera Maya area to get feedback from them on vendors I was interested in. I called my suppliers the "Dream Team" because each of them truly created magic at our Blue Venado Beach wedding.

Blue Venado Beach Wedding

Amanda and Nick describe their Blue Venado beach wedding as a modern and romantic affair. White minimalistic flowers, an endless amount of candles throughout the palapa hut, hurricane glasses & taper candles, lights & disco balls, all left everything twinkling. The wedding stationery was crafted on a mixture of handmade paper/letterpressed (menus) and linen complimenting the neutral floral arrangements perfectly. As far as table decorations and tablescapes go, these literally give a sense of being on cloud nine. Especially the intimate sweetheart table for two.

Food & Drink

Cocktail hour had an immense amount of finger foods but... fresh oysters and large jumbo shrimp served on the beach - mmm yum. Every guest also received their very own coconut wedding favour decorated with a gold leaf monogram. And Amanda & Nick celebrated becoming husband & wife with a  shot (a huge trend alert for 2023/24) - cheers. This wasn't the only present gifted on the day, Amanda also surprised Nick with a dog tag symbolising the puppy she had bought him. The evening culminated with everyone dancing under the canopy of disco balls and nearly breaking the floor.

Black bridesmaid dresses are the ultimate in sophistication, perfect for this modern destination wedding.

Enjoy every moment of it! This time goes by so fast, always remember the focus is on you and your significant other, that is who it's about at the end of the day. It's all bittersweet leading up to your wedding day and post-wedding. So feel everything and enjoy being loved, and all the happiness throughout the wedding planning journey
