An Outdoor Wedding Moves Indoors on “My Fair Wedding” – Havana and Breast Cancer Awareness Theme


On Sunday night’s “My Fair Wedding,” David Tutera planned a 1950’s Havana/breast cancer awareness themed wedding for a bride who had breast cancer four years ago. She wanted her wedding to honor her groom’s Cuban heritage and bring awareness to breast cancer by using the trademark color, pink.

When David met her, he realized that she did not have any direction for her theme, just feathers and a lot of pink. Her bridesmaids were in hot pink, a little too much for the eyes, and her wedding dress did not reflect her personality or the Havana theme.

David took the bride to Jorge Perez De La Habana, a designer from Cuba, and selected a new dress for her to wear at her ceremony. The designer gave her a second dress that was short in front and had a train in the back to wear for dancing at her reception. (Her original dress was given to Brides Against Breast Cancer.)

The bridesmaids were given short black strapless dresses with feathers that were accented with a pink brooch at the waist, all from Panache Bridal Beverly Hills. Their bouquets were pink roses. By putting the bridesmaids in black, they stood out in the sea of pink decor at the ceremony and reception and their pink bouquets really popped. (Something to remember when your bride wants her bridesmaids wearing the same color as her decor.)

The ceremony and reception spaces were filled with 20,000 pink roses, pink candles and votives. Palm leaves and trees gave the spaces the tropical feeling of Havana. The cake, made by The Pastry Swan Bakery, had pink roses also.

The favor box was created by Wrapsody and Ink and contained a pink chocolate rose from Enjou Chocolates

Everything looked beautiful but what they didn’t tell us in the show was that the wedding and reception were originally scheduled to take place outdoors. However, with the possibility of rain looming, David utilized his “Plan B” and moved everything indoors. you can see what happened in the video below. (Don’t forget to have a “Plan B” when you plan an outdoor wedding with your bride.)
