Kim and David got ready for their I Do's in the resort with rooms overlooking the pool and beach, said their vows, and then partied late into the night under the string lights illuminating their reception space. Enjoy every bit of this gorgeous tropical wedding, and join us in wishing this bride and groom the best in all the years to come.

ATTIRE

Kim's wedding dress had a sexy sheer bodice and sheer lace train, lending a bohemian feel to her radiant, beachy beauty. A floral jeweled headpiece and relaxed beach waves finished off her flawless look. Her bridesmaids wore mismatched neutral dresses to keep with the relaxed feel.

David donned light blue pants, a navy jacket, white shirt, and pink handkerchief. His groomsmen matched perfectly, minus the jacket, and sported navy and white belts to complete the look.

VENUE
---
The beach in front of the Hacienda Beach Resort was set up beautifully simply for the wedding ceremony. A copper pipe arch accented with bright flowers showcased the views behind the couple as they said their vows. 

The reception followed the ceremony, still just steps from Medano Beach in the restaurant area of the Hacienda Cocina y Cantina and with the famous Cabo Arch in the background. Tables and chairs were set up near the infinity pool at the resort, making for spectacular views throughout the afternoon and as the sun set that evening.

DECOR
---
Amy Abbott Events brought to life a dreamy ceremony and reception, with colorful tropical decor. Gold and turquoise accents were set off by bold florals in bright pink, orange, and yellow.

Turquoise maracas were placed at each table setting as favors for guests, and featured a note that read "shake me at the kiss". Table runners added an extra pop at each table, with some in a black and white Aztec print, and some woven serape table runners in a rainbow of colors to bring some Mexican flair.

12 Creative Bridesmaid Invitation Ideas

Your girls are important to you, and so is your wedding. You need girls by your side who you love and trust to help you plan. Weddings aren't all work though -- let them know just how fun your wedding day will be by asking them to join your bridal party in a creative way.

1. Scavenger hunt

For the girls who love puzzles. There are a couple of ways you can do this one. For a memory-based hunt, leave clues in your favorite or significant places to lead her around your city. At the end, meet her with a gift basket (or one of these great tote bags!) and ask her to be your bridesmaid. This one will take a lot of planning, so it might be best to save it for your Maid of Honor. Or, make the scavenger hunt wedding themed and have a list of specific items rather than clues, and have the girls team up to complete it together.

2. Be my “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”

For the more sentimental type, write a sweet letter to your girls, like this one:

Tradition says there are 4 things a bride needs on her wedding day: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. I’m not sure about all that, but I do know:
our friendship is old,
our dresses will be new,
I may borrow your shoes,
and I’m blue without you!
Be my bridesmaid?

3. Custom shoes

While the converse-and-wedding-dress shoe trend may be fading, writing a note on the bottom of the bride or groom’s shoes isn’t. Extend this to your bridesmaids by giving them a pair of shoes you know they’ll love. These can be flats, tennis shoes, or stilettos. If you have enough planned for your wedding, you can give all the girls matching shoes they can wear to the wedding and/or reception. Write a note on the bottom asking them to be your ‘maids!

4. Send her flowers

Who says you can’t send your friend flowers? Most girls love getting flowers. Send her a gorgeous arrangement; just don’t forget to sign the card!

5. Ask with food

You can’t go wrong with food. There are also tons of options for asking someone to be your bridesmaid that involve food. Take her out to dinner. Order delivery and binge-watch all the romantic comedies on Netflix. Decorate fudge or cookies together (ask her to be your bridesmaid in icing – who could say no to that?!) Maybe she loves a strange food combo, like Michael from Princess Diaries loves skittles on pizza. Instead of “Sorry”, write “Bridesmaid?”

6. Coffee

Will You Be My Bridesmaid Mug

Arrange to meet up with her for coffee, but arrive early and order for her. Have the barista write “will you be my bridesmaid?” on her cup. You may need to be a little crafty with this one if she doesn’t notice right away. You could ask “Oh, did I grab your cup on accident? What’s the name?” For the eco-friendly coffee lover, or just for a more permanent gift, get a personalized coffee mug and have the barista use that for her coffee.

7. Personalized (wine) bottle label

Get a bottle of her favorite wine, champagne, or other drink an put a personalized label on it. You can order a bottle with the label or make your own.

Want to do more than a bottle of wine? Check out these personalized wine-themed gifts!

8. Video invitation

For your long distance girls: you can still make the invitation more personal and exciting than a phone call or text. There are tons of cute videos going around the internet where someone makes signs instead of talking to share a story, reveal a pregnancy, or any other reason! You have complete control over this one, so make it as sappy or funny as you want. Maybe your invitation will go viral!

9. Are you having a destination wedding?

Personalized Passport Cover

Give her a passport cover with a note inside! Bonus points if the note is on paper that looks like a passport page and is stamped with wherever you’re going (even if it doesn’t require a passport to get there).

10. Use your dog

Do your girls love dogs? Or maybe your fiancĂ© proposed to you by putting a ring on a puppy’s collar. A dog is probably the most adorable way to ask anyone anything. So why not your bridesmaids? Hang a sign around your dog’s neck, or just let him lay there and look cute with a sign next to him, if he doesn’t like things around his neck. Can he fetch a newspaper? Have him deliver a rolled up note to your girl.

11. Custom nail polish label

Put together your own make-up kit (hint: use your wedding colors!) with nail polish and remover, a nail trimming set, eye liner and shadow, lip liner and lip stick, mascara, blush, foundation, highlighter or any combination of these! If possible, create a custom label for the containers.

12. Scratch off card

You’ve won the lottery with your fiancĂ©, so let your girls share some of your luck with a super cute scratch-off invitation.

There are hundreds of ways to ask someone you care about to be your bridesmaid. The hard part is choosing which way to ask! What’s your favorite?
