Timeless And Perfect: The Most Iconic Latin-American Weddings To Date

By 04 May, 2021

In 2019, an average of nearly 6,000 weddings occurred each day, according to Wedding Report. While that number has significantly dropped over the past year, this does not mean that romantic plans have halted. In fact, now is the time to take cues from weddings’ past to find inspiration. What better source of inspiration than some of the most iconic Latin-American Weddings?

Sofia Vergara And Joe Manganiello

Anyone with an Instagram account will recall Sofia Vergara’s dreamy walk down a floral paradise of an aisle. The Colombian-American actress married American Joe Manganiello at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida back in 2015. Despite the time that has passed, their wedding is still considered iconic for the sheer amount of roses, phalaenopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, and vanda orchids that were used for the occasion. It was certainly worth noting that the weddings that followed afterward also increased the number of flowers they used for their nuptials—a certified trend-setter.

Prince Nikolaos And Princess Tatiana Of Greece And Denmark 

On August 25, 2010, Prince Nikolaos wed the Venezuelan beauty, Tatiana, on the picturesque hills of Spetses, Greece. A royal wedding for the books; the happy couple held a private ceremony at the Cathedral of Ayios Nikolaos and rode a horse-drawn carriage to their reception at a nearby property. Like celebrity weddings, royal weddings are always a source of inspiration for engagement rings. Princess Tatiana wore her engagement ring on her wedding day—a sapphire stone surrounded by diamonds.

Eva Longoria And Jose Antonio Baston 

Actress and entrepreneur Eva Longoria married Mexican-born businessman Jose Antonio Baston in Valle de Bravo. This wedding is a good source of inspiration for those aiming to have their friends and family be a solid part of their wedding. Longoria’s wedding dress was designed by Victoria Beckham, and Baston’s sister planned the event. An added surprise was Longoria’s costar and friend, Vanessa Williams, that sang her hit song “Save The Best For Last”. It was a lovely example of how a special evening can be made even more special when your loved ones helped on bring it together.

Historically speaking, the region of Latin America has always been well-known for its romance and passion. These two elements are clearly represented in the most iconic Latin American weddings held in the past few decades. The nuptials above are definitely going to be timeless and great sources of inspiration for those seeking to build their big day.
