A Fun Peru Destination Wedding

Katrina & Franc

Peru destination weddings can be so much fun! We had the pleasure to be part as wedding coordinators of a very special and entertained destination wedding in Paracas, a town located on the Peruvian central coast. It is about 3 hours car ride from Lima.

Paracas wedding

Bride and groom were looking for a relaxed wedding celebration with plenty of food and drinks, nothing too fancy, but something absolutely fun with a relaxed atmosphere for their guests. We tought about a beautiful Oceanfront venue in the area, with several open space options and fabulous grounds they could consider for their specia day.

The result was a stylish and fun wedding celebration in front of the Pacific Ocean, which blended the charme of Afro-Peruvian traditions and the modernity of Australian culture.

The ceremony setting was extremely simple, a foliage half-moon arch placed in one of the garden areas of the venue, rounded by tropical palms with the ocean right in front. We opted for wooden back chairs for the guests and little bougainvillea flower arrangements. Bestmen and bridesmaids, dressed up respectively in beige and tobacco tones, stand up at bride and groom’s sides. The sun was shining during the ceremony, the ocean breeze was quite intense, as well as the sound of the ocean’s waves…it was such a special moment for all.

The reception was really fun! Fourteen rounded table with white tablecloths, delicate flower arrangements with few cream, white or malva flowers, wooden chairs set around a squared wooden dancefloor structure placed in front of the long bar. As backing for the bar, we used vintage lamps hung up on different levels. Wooden and cream tones fabric were the main characters for the reception. The lighting effect was beautiful at night, few bulb lines hung from the top of the dancefloor to all the reception area and few reflectors for the party.

Bride and groom opted for a champagne fountain, very popular in Australian weddings. They started pouring champagne into the glasses and people helped themselves from the tower. The entertainment part was also very important for bride and groom, they choose an Afro-dance show and cajon and zapateo show. The cajon is a traditional Peruvian percussion instrument, a sort of box-shaped played with the hands and fingers, used in Afro-Peruvian music, but currently used also in flamenco. Zapateo is a type of dance, also typical of the Afro-Peruvian culture, where dancers use their feet as percussion instruments. It is usually accompanied by the Peruvian cajon.

The party was so much fun, the dancefloor was so crowded and the guests danced until dawn.
This is definitely a great venue for outdoor wedding celebrations!

wedding celebration 2

Are you planning a destination wedding in Peru? Are you dreaming about having a fun wedding with a real Peruvian touch? That’s the article you’ve been waiting for. Peruvian weddings are fun, they reflect our joyful Peruvian culture, and it is most likely that bride and groom work very hard to plan the party and ways they entertain their guests. Entertainment is a quite important concern for the couple, since people must have fun and remember the great time they spent at their wedding. A live band or a DJ is not enough for us, we need to have a surprise factor, and let the guests live a unique experience.

Wedding celebration

Here some entertainment options you might consider for your Peru destination wedding: 

HORA LOCA: I know the name sounds very exotic and crazy indeed, but there’s nothing weird in it. As I said in another blog article (http://sayidoinperu.com/blog/hora-loca-perfect-way-make-wedding-guests-dance-dawn/) “hora loca” is a combination of Mardi Gras from New Orleans and Brazilian Carnival celebrations. It’s a carnivalesque min-bush which lasts for approximately one hour of the reception party. You will see dancers, still walkers, other performers and a lot of props, such as sparkly masks, colorful hats and boas, oversize glasses and ties, glow sticks and much more. This actually depends from the theme you choose for your “hora loca”. The Dj will select the best party songs and wedding guests will start approaching the dancefloor…a real fun moment!

AFRO-PERUVIAN SHOW: In Peru there’s a big afro-Peruvian community living in Chincha area, they are descendants from Africans who were enslaved and brought to Peru after the arrival of the Spanish “conquistadores”. That’s why the Afro-Peruvian culture is a big part of our cultural idiosyncrasy and our cultural essence, especially when we think about their dances, their music, their cuisine. That’s why is very common to have an engaging Afro-Peruvian show with captivating music and great dancers, which will make you move your body and feel your soul.

Elegant Destination Wedding Inspiration

beach wedding portada

Few weeks ago we had the opportunity to plan an elegant wedding in a charming oceanfront location nearby Lima and we felt in love with the decoration details. This wedding was all about flowers arrangements, flower centerpieces and a beautiful flower and foliage arch for the ceremony. The stunning venue did its part too, since all these elements combined with the location made everything even more perfect. Here I want to give you an idea of how the decoration details bride and groom choose really made a difference in creating the atmosphere they were looking for.

beach wedding venue

oceanfront wedding reception

When I received the call from the couple, I immediately understood that they were looking for a special location and this is really one of a kind. That is why I proposed them this beautiful oceanfront villa with romans architecture pieces, a little pool and a beautiful garden area. I also understood they were looking for an elegant wedding with a Peruvian touch, so me and my team tried heard to propose them little but meaningful decoration details.

First, the charming and elegant arch! This was a super fluffy arch with foliage and flowers as ceremony backing. It was a great choice to have the ceremony in the evening under a beautiful sunset. The sunset light combined with the arch really created an outstanding atmosphere for unforgettable photos.

As I said above, this wedding was all about flowers. Apart from the arch, the beautiful flower arrangements at the center of the buffet table added an elegant touch to the wedding reception.

How to Design a Wedding Mood Board

wedding board

Nowadays planning a wedding could be a bit challenging, due to the enormous variety of existing wedding themes, trendy color palettes, wide range of flowers available, multiple table arrangements ideas, etc. That’s why we always suggest our couple to start from a wedding mood board, a collection of pictures from other weddings with ideas, colors, decorations they might like. You don’t know what a wedding mood board is? Ok, let’s start from the very beginning. A wedding mood board is the visual representation of your wedding, which should reflect your vision and inspiration. It should contain specific ideas, details and elements that must be included in your wedding design.

Making a mood board is not an easy task! We know that with Internet you have access to thousands of wedding ideas, wedding trends and so on, so you might need to spend a bit of time surfing the net and collecting ideas.

First step: questioning! Start asking yourself the basic questions, such as: When do I want to get married? Where am I going to get married? How many guests do I have? Among others. Try to answer these questions before designing your mood board.

wedding planning

Second step: choose your wedding theme, such as rustic, classic, glamourous, shabby, boho, etc.

wedding ceremony

Third step: it’s time to choose your color palette! Look into color palettes websites, there are many available. You can create your palette from an image, you have tons of options.

Wedding Color palette

Fourth step: Once you have a clear the wedding theme and the color palette you can start selecting more specific ideas searching the net. Try to divide idea, that will help you narrowing down the selections you make. For instance, you can divide your search in categories: wedding cake, table flower arrangements, ceremony arch, table settings, flower bouquets, etc.

mood board wedding

Fifth step: Once you have your first selection, try to narrow down the pictures you selected at first. For instance, if you have 5 flowers bouquet, reduce the selection to two options. I know this is not easy, but you have to try, otherwise you’ll end up having too many ideas on the table and this could be confusing.

mood board wedding cakes

Sixth step: create the mood board. You can use the tool you prefer, from Power Point to a simple Word, where you can paste the pics. Today we have other app and software you can use for creating your mood board. Pinterest is the one we use the most. It is very useful and efficient since you can share the board you create with your partner and work together. If you have a wedding planner, you can also share the board with him/her.

wedding board pinterest

Seventh step: check everything once again and see if you need to make any change or cut some ideas. Kee in mind that less is more, so try to include very specific details.mood board wedding final

I think that the mood board is a very effective way to plan a wedding, it makes things easy for us and for the couple itself. You should try to stick with the mood board and try to analyze any new idea considering the mood of your board. I mean if you want a classic ivory peonies bouquet, but you are planning a glamorous wedding with red roses flowers arrangements, you should probably stick to red roses bouquet. So, this tool will definitely help you out in the planning process. Also, it will reflect your idea, what you envision for your wedding and you must share it with your wedding suppliers so that they have a real sense of what you want for your special day.

So now guys, you have a lot to work to do before sending your wedding planner your mood board! 🙂

Romantic Wedding in The Sacred Valley

Peru detination wedding

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to be part of a very special wedding celebration in the heart of the Sacred Valley. The venue of the event is one of the best places in the Sacred Valley, has a colonial architectural structure, and stunning Andean mountains around it. The Ceremony area was in a charming garden with a grand tree in the background.  We absolutely loved the ambiance as it was so romantic and beautiful.  The guests were truly amazed by the view and the intricate details of the whole event.

Wedding in Sacred Valley
Selecting the perfect venue for this couple was just the beginning.  We made sure that all details planned ahead of time were included. When planning a wedding with a couple that has never seen their venue in person, the most important thing is that we recreate the perfect setting and even more important recreate their expected dreams for decoration and make sure that every little detail was considered. The theme for this wedding was romantic and dreamy, so we chose an outdoor ceremony in a flower-filled garden.  To enhance the experience, the outdoor ceremony also included a tent or “huppah” with flower details that combined with the bride’s bouquet and the wedding’s color palette.

Wedding in Cusco
For the reception, the Bride and groom opted for rustic-chic decoration paired with vibrant color centerpieces with red, yellow and orange roses. The centerpieces were arranged using a natural style, like a garden with foliage in a gold vase. The ceiling had a beautiful white tent paired with gold string of lights.  The bar was made of wood simply decorated with light and flowers in a vase.

Wedding cake
For many couples, the wedding cake is an essential part of the wedding celebration. The use of colors is definitely a new trend for wedding cakes. For this wedding, the cake was very important, the couple chose a 2-tier cake covered by fondant and it was hand-painted with gold touches. The cake was placed on the dessert table on top of a wooden base and surrounded by orange flowers.

Wedding bouquet

The bride´s bouquet was lovely! The bride opted for an airy bouquet with orange roses of different sizes and green touches of nature, all perfectly assembled. Many times, the flowers in the bouquet define the centerpieces and this was the case in this wedding.  Everything had a delicate balance and looked great.

Overall, I really enjoyed the planning process for this wedding, looking into all the details, the decorations, the lighting, the romantic style of the wedding. The Bride, groom and all the guests really enjoyed their time in Peru and I am sure they went back home with some great memories.

Details you Cannot miss while Planning your Wedding

wedding planning 2

We are used to talk about wedding etiquette a lot in reference on what you should do and what you shouldn’t during your wedding planning process. We all know that planning a wedding is a big, let’s say huge, thing! And sometimes leaving apart some details can definitely happen. That is why we are here! We will provide you with a complete list of little details that you shouldn’t miss while planning your wedding, think about this as a wedding essential little details checklist, a part from the big items such as decoration, flowers, cake, church, priest or officiant, this is a very imporant list of details you should take in account.

wedding planner

It often happens that between a wedding cake tasting, the wedding dress shopping, the venue hunting, you can miss the little things. Never forget that in weddings every detail counts! And your guests will definitely appreciate it! Let’s be honest your guests can also be judgemental when it comes to weddings, they will compare your wedding with theirs (if married), they will look into the details and they notice if there is something missing or something wrong … this is part of the game guys. So better be prepared!

  • Escort Cards: it is important that every guest has his own escort card, never forget to include one of your guest. Go through the complete list of invitees hundred times if necessary, check that all the guests’ names are spelled correctly and that they are assigned to the right table. Also, try to design escort cards in line with your wedding color palette and put them at the reception entrance. They need to be easy to find and the tables chart needs to be self-explanatory. You do not want that your guests get frustrated while looking for their escort cards.

  • Wedding website: nowadays it is essential to have a wedding website. It has to be useful for your guests in terms of including wedding ceremony/reception venue address, the wedding exact timeschedule, the dresscode if any, and any relevant information. In this article you will find all you need to know to set the perfect wedding website: http://sayidoinperu.com/blog/tips-perfect-wedding-website/ Remember that if you are planning a destination wedding, the importance of the website actually increases, considering that here you can include travel tips and recommendations for your guests, flight and accommodation information, restaurants recommendations among others.

Wedding-webside

  • Nice favors: this is another important details! It is a way to let your guests know how thankful you are that they made it to your wedding! So choose nice favors, possibly in line with your wedding theme (if any), and put them on a nice table so that your guests can grab a favor before going away. It is very common today to opt for edible favors, such as a little bottle of wine, a little pot of jam or honey. Your guests they will definitely love it and use it!

Nice favors for weddings

  • Have a Plan B: this is essential especially for outdoor wedding. So have a well planned contigency plan in case of bad weather, your guests will not appreciate being outside under the rain for your wedding ceremony or reception. It would be awkward!

Wedding planning

  • Food allergies: check with your guests if they have any food allergy or if there is any vegetarian/vegan among them, so that you can arrange a special menu for them. Once you have this clear, provide a complete list tou your caterer, highlighting the names of the guests and the tables where they will be seated. This is a nice touch that your guests will definitely appreciate.
  • Suppliers food: take in account that also the suppliers you selected for your wedding need to eat, so order some additional meals and pay for them in advance. You do not want to deal with this issue during the wedding reception.

Catering for wedding

  • Music list: provide a detailed music list to your DJ or music band, include songs that you love it and that are meaningful for you and let them understand what are your favorite music genres. Specify to your music vendor the song you want him/her to play and when. I am referring to your reception’s entry music, your first dance song for instance. Also take in account your guests’s music tastes if you want them to have fun.

As you can see planning a wedding is a huge thing and sometimes is not easy at all to have every detail under control. Try to make lists of things you should look into and ask for help! That’s one of the best tip we can give you, always have someone, such as a wedding planner or a family member or a friend, able to look into these details with you. Four eyes see more than two!

Turron wedding cake

Eating cake at a wedding reception is something that will never go out of style! The wedding cake is en essential part of a wedding celebration, it has to be a beautiful cake, ideally in line with the wedding theme and at the same time it has to be delicious, let’s say as delicious as it looks! In the last couple of years we saw several cake trends, very far away from the idea of the white and classic 3-tier wedding cake. We have seen unique creative ideas, such as the naked cake for 2018 weddings. The aim of this blog is to focus on the latest 2019 wedding cake trends for the upcoming wedding seasons. So if you are planning to get married soon, get on board and read this article, which we consider the ultimate guide to 2019 wedding cake trends.

Wedding Cake

-Colourful cakes: the use of colors is definitely a new trend for wedding cakes. You will see intense or light colors, such as blue, green, pink, coral among others on cakes this year. It is also common the use of hand-painted cakes, especially for cake covered by fondant. The use of gold and metal details is becoming a trend again this year as well, also black fondant cake are common this year. So in other words colors are a must! Our tip: stick with your wedding color palette!

-Non-traditional wedding cakes: another trend for 2019 wedding is to have cake in line with a country traditions, basically no-wedding cakes. For instance we plan wedding in Peru and it is very common that bride and groom ask for a traditional Peruvian dessert made as wedding cake. This is happening more and more often everywhere. So, get rid of fondant or buttercream, and go for a delicious pavlova, a turron de Doña Pepa cake, a classic sponge cake with whipped cream or an Italian millefoglie.

Turron wedding cake

-One-tier cake: forget the high wedding cakes construction, 3, 4, 5 tiers of cakes. This year will be very common to have simple one-tier minimalist wedding cake. Simple doesn’t mean boring taste or decoration. If you are afraid that a one-tier cake will not be enough to feed all of your wedding guests, you can have a bigger cake inside of the same flavors and taste to slice and serve.

lllOne-tier wedding cake

 

-Alternative cakes: the use of other elements instead of real cakes, such as donuts or macaroons towers are also very common this year. Also the cheese cake is a real trend this year, with the cake tiers made with actual wheels of cheese topped with fresh fruits. The cheese wheels cake is a good option for couples who are not into sweets, served this fromage cake with jams, fresh fruits and nuts.

Alternative wedding cakes

-Letter cakes: this is also a new trend for 2019 weddings. So opt for bride and groom’s initials shaped cakes topped with fresh cream/whippedcream/creamcheese (this is actually up to you) and decorate with fresh fruits or flowers.

Letter cakes

Remember that choosing your wedding cake is a very important decision of the wedding planning process. All your guests will be eager to have a slice of cake at the reception and the cake cutting is a very important moment of your wedding day, a memory taht you’ll cherish forever. Also some additional tips: think about using a selection of wedding cake photos to show the cake designer and make sure that he/she has understood your idea and schedule a cake tasting few months before the wedding to make sure that the combination of flavors is the one you are looking for.

An Oceanfront Peruvian-Style Destination Wedding

beautiful wedding on the beach

Credits: Photographer Lara Momentos

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to be part of an amazing wedding celebration nearby Lima. The venue of the event is one of the best we have ever seen in Lima area. It is a beautiful Roman Empire style house located on a rock in front of the Pacific Ocean, few kilometer south of Lima city. The ceremony area was basically a cliff on the Pacific Ocean and all you have in front of you was the immensity of the sea. We loved so much the atmosphere of this event we planned, we were totally merged in a special setting rounded by the Ocean breeze! Guests were deeply amazed by the view and the outstanding details of the wedding event.

We know that for many destination weddings guests coming to Peru from abroad have high expectations on the event and the trip abroad. They are excited for the wedding event itself plus they have a big curiosity of learning more about the Peruvian culture and meeting local people. That’s exactly what happened during this event, a lot of good energy and vibes coming from the guests who really wanted to have fun in a traditional Peruvian style setting.

Bride and groom also wanted to include a very special cake, a part from their three-tier classic wedding cake. They decided to have a two-tier “turron de Doña Pepa” cake, which is a sweet traditionally eaten in October, the month of the “Señor de los Milagros”, a holiday month in Peru. This delicious sweet is made of anise cookie bars and a sticky delicious syrup and topped with candy sprinkles. It is an explosion of tastes, highly addictive…I can swear! 😀

The Importance of Flower Decorations for Outdoor Weddings

flowers decorations

Flowers decorations are key for outdoor wedding celebrations, they bring that bucolic touch to the event bride and groom are looking for. If you are planning an outdoor wedding you want to get married in an open space, in the middle of nature, in a beautiful garden with trees all around, in the middle of a valley with the Peruvian Andes as background or on the beach with the Pacific Ocean at the back. But in few words, what is important to you is: to be rounded by nature!
beautiful skyview for weddings

Lately we organized a charming outdoor destination wedding in Lima, in a beautiful villa on the top of a hill where you could appreciate Lima’s skyline! The event was not properly in the middle of nowhere or into the wildest nature ever, but we tried to recreate the bucolic atmosphere with flower decorations. We know that nothing is impossibile when it comes to bride and groom’s wishes! 🙂

flower decotations for outdoor weddings

So we tried to incorporate in the decoration several flowers elements, such as swing decorations, little flore arrangements for the ceremony path, and we also include a tree decoration for the cheese table. The atmosphere was really magic, a real fairy tale.

For the ceremony we used swing decorations, three big flower arrangements and several white babiesbreath arrangements for the path to the ceremony.

The imponent tree decoration was set right in the middle of the cheese table, rounded by bread rolls, olives, dry and fresh fruit and obviously many different kind of delicious cheese.

For the dessert table we use a huge flower arrangements on the green tones. We placed right behind the wedding cake. It looked amazing! The cake was a naked ones with red berries and topped with one of the cutest cake topper we have ever seen. The little sweets placed all around were the perfect complements for the beautiful flower arrangements.

bar decorations with wood and flowers

Where we could not use flowers we decided to use wooden elements, such as for the bar and the beers station. Foliage, flowers and wood were the main carachters for this wedding event.

reception table decoration for wedding

The reception table was a long squared table for about 30-35 people, with a long flower arrangement on the white and green tones. Actually the mise en place of the table was really simple but the main character was the flower arrangement for sure. We rounded the reception table with swing flower decorations, to complete the natural feeling of the area.

fun with weddings

The beautiful swimming pool also helped us including another nature element: water. Obviously at the end of the part bride, groom and guests jumped into the pool. It was a lot of fun!

This wedding really helped us understanding that nothing is impossible when it comes to wedding events, and that the importance of flowers decorations is really undisputed. We loved playing with flowers and wooden elements to recreate the atmosphere bride and groom were looking for.
