Had so much fun in NYC yesterday listening to celebrity planner Colin Cowie at a destination wedding event hosted by Love Mexico. Colin recently partnered with Palace Resorts in Mexico to develop a collection of nine wedding packages starting at just $1,500. Two of his tablescapes were on display at the Love Mexico seminar.
What I loved about the Colin Cowie tablescapes I saw, was the attention to detail. I loved the use of a silver vase instead of the usual clear glass, which was stunning yet so simple. The other detail I loved was the use of transparent overlays in his designs. On a soft white and gold tablescape, Colin used a very subtle modern gold "lace" floor length overlay on a white tablecloth. It added just enough color and texture to balance and soften the gold and white tones.
But the seminar was not only about Colin Cowie. It was about all reasons to love Mexico and to consider this beautiful country as a destination wedding location. I am not only lucky to now have a ton of information and contacts at my fingertips, but also a new appreciate for Mexico's culture, quaint towns, beautiful hotels, warm people, and the incredible value it offers couples wanting to plan their dream wedding abroad.
