Reader Kara emailed me searching for coloured wedding shoes. She’s also on the hunt for pale pink peep toes. let’s see what Australian online stores have on offer!
Opening Purple Stiletto from Mollini, Megan Peeptoe stiletto in Navy from Zu Shoes, Sass stiletto in red from Midas, Valentine Stiletto in red from Zu Shoes, Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Heart, Allis dark purple stiletto from Midas Scarlett Stiletto in Purple from Midas Wittner Blossom shoes in Red, Ribbon Stilettos in Bright Blue from Scooter Gilly Stiletto in Royal Blue from Tony Bianco Diva Peeptoes in Fuschia from Betts Carmen peeptoe in Red from Betts,
Kara was looking for jeweled shoes and although I didn’t find any I thought were fabulous enough in Australian online stores, there are plenty in US/UK stores or you can use Emmersen shoe clips for a temporary (but equally gorgeous) look.
Kara was also on the hunt for pale pink peep toes, here’s what I found!
With all of the spring shoes still hitting the shelves, I think this is a topic I will have to revisit shortly!
Dana and Raul held their ceremony and reception at the spectacular Saks Restaurant in Mexico City.
In keeping with their classic meets modern meets rock and roll theme and passion for music, the bride walked down the aisle to The Beatles cover of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by T.V Carpio. The ceremony soundtrack included “Wonderwall” by Oasis, “Enterlude” by The Killers and “Boy’s Don’t Cry” by The Cure.
Dana carried a bouquet of white calla lilies.
Dana’s childhood friend performed the ceremony. As she is bilingual, the ceremony was performed in both English and Spanish.
Dana wore a vintage style bracelet from Kenneth Jay Lane from The Ruby Door.
Dana’s favourite reception moments include her mother (who is a barbershop singer) singing “Sunrise Sunset” acapella and her father giving his speech in both English and Spanish.
Dana and Raul danced their first dance to a Cuban salsa remix of “Clocks” by Coldplay. They took extensive cha cha lessons to wow their guests and it worked!
At the end of the night, Dana and Raul surprised their guests with a mariachi band.
Congratulations Dana and Raul on your beautiful wedding day! May your marriage be as full of colour as your wedding day!

Dana and Raul
Today’s wedding is the colourful Mexico celebration of Dana and Raul! (this entry did go out yesterday but with the website propagating it disappeared!)
Dana and Raul met through a work friend and Raul knew it was love when Dana proclaimed her passion for the band The Pixies!The couple used La La Love You as their recessional song. The pair decided a destination wedding to Mexico was the perfect way to marry. Not only is Raul from Mexico City but they also really wanted to show their guests the real beauty Mexico has to offer.

Dana runs her own stationery design business Dana Cordova Design and designed the stationery, event materials and decor herself. The couple event set up a website to educate guests about the history of their chosen locations and to help them get the best out of the city.
Dana and Raul held a wedding week with guests celebrating for many nights before the wedding late night drinks and salsa dancing, a traditional Mexican meal in the groom’s home town with Marimba musicians playing and even persero rides!
From the hotel, it was only a short walk to the ceremony and reception venue!
Check back later today for the gorgeous ceremony and fantastic reception of Dana and Raul!
