Desert Wedding Inspo!

Cactus cupcakes and sweeping landscapes? Count us in. The desert, being so all encompassing and vast and beautiful and terrifying, seems like a fabulous place to celebrate eternity. Doesn't it?

Isn't this the most romantic thing you've ever seen?

The sweeping backdrop of flat ground, rolling dunes, or arching mountains in the distances make for such gorgeous, grand places! We found an abundance of gorgeous wedding photos set in Joshua Tree, the Grand Canyon, and very red parts of Arizona. Think bigger though... Morocco, anyone? 

So many cactus cakes!

We're being a little narrow minded here, but... Cacti! How adorable are all of these very desert-appropriate cakes? We love the warm colour schemes, the blushes and greenery! A little bit rough around the edges is perfect for this occasion. 

Colourful decor against the pale desert palette.

The trend we saw in desert wedding staging was a little mismatchiness and nothing too precious looking. Antiques and thrift store finds run wild in tablescapes, archways, and reception areas. Who gets to lug the setee out to the reception site?
