Incorporate Modern Touches with Traditional Southwest Vibes

Bring Fun to Your Wedding with a Mini Bar, Lounge Area & Eunique Backdrop

One way to incorporate modern touches into your Southwest wedding while still maintaining a traditional vibe is by creating a mini bar and lounge area. Not only is this a great way to keep your guests entertained, but it also adds a personalized touch to your wedding. You can set up a rustic bar area with wooden barrels and a selection of your favorite drinks. Consider adding some fun signage with quotes or sayings that reflect the Southwest culture. A lounge area can be set up with plush seating and pillows in a variety of colors and patterns, giving a nod to traditional Southwest textiles. This is a great place for guests to relax and take in the ambiance of the wedding. By adding these modern touches to your wedding, you can create a unique blend of old and new that will make your special day unforgettable.,

To add even more excitement to your Southwest wedding, consider incorporating a unique and fun backdrop. This can be a great way to create a focal point for your ceremony or reception. You can use anything from a colorful tapestry to a vintage door to create a backdrop that reflects your personal style. Adding some greenery or flowers can also help to tie the backdrop into your overall wedding decor. With a little creativity, you can create a backdrop that is as unique as your love story.,

You can make your backdrop as simple or elaborate as you like. A Southwest-inspired rug can make a beautiful and colorful backdrop for your ceremony, while a hanging installation made from pampas grass or other dried flowers can add a natural and organic touch to your reception. Don't be afraid to get creative and think outside the box when it comes to your backdrop. The backdrop for this shoot was provided by one of our incredible vendors Rooted Rentals NM.
