Did you know Cinco de Mayo marks May 5, 1862, when the Mexican army won the Battle of Puebla? The holiday has become a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture in the United States, particularly in communities with large Mexican-American populations.
The energy and sheer magic of Mexican flair is often expressed through the spirited and lively use of joyful color. Sizzling red, orange, blue, turquoise, purple, lemon, lime and pink – these passionate colors are applied to everything and are often offset with earthly shades and whites. Mexican celebrations are an invitation to show off colorful flowers, which are an integral part of Mexico’s culture.
And for some couples, Cinco de Mayo is the perfect day to tie the knot. Take a look at these colorful wedding blogs from Style Me Pretty:
