Some Like It Hot
Some of the most beautiful locations around the world are in tropical settings and as such, many of you may dream of a tropical beach themed wedding. Longing to have a destination wedding without the destination? Try a tropical themed wedding and bring the destination to you!
Kick Up The Color
When designing a tropical wedding, think color! Rich vibrant hues of blue, coral, green, red and orange add just the right touch to your décor. Bird of paradise, red ginger, orchids and red anthuriums make bold statements as centerpieces or as your bridal bouquet. Adding hints of tropical fruits such as coconut, kiwi, plantains, and mango, give your centerpieces an extra touch of tropical living. Mini fish bowls filled with floating candles or colorful flowers can add a touch of classic elegance to your table. Feeling like a star? Incorporating starfish, coral, and seashells to your tabletop bring a hint of the sea to your table. Brightly colored chairs, napkins and linens add just the right amount of joie de vivre to your festivities and help tie the room together.
Add A Taste Of The Tropics
As for the food, fish and seafood make great options for you and your guests. Craving more surf and turf for your guests? A combination of both beef or chicken and seafood always works to please a variety of palates and tastes. Mini crab cakes, shrimp cocktails, sushi, and fresh tropical fruit make great, easy to enjoy appetizers. Popular alcoholic and non-alcoholic tropical drinks to include are pina coladas, margaritas, fruit smoothies, and tropical mixed drinks with hints of mango, papaya and pineapple.
Feeling nostalgic? Try filling several mini-bottles with sand, seashells and a thank you message for your guests to commemorate your beautiful day. Doing this gives everyone the opportunity to take a piece of your personal paradise home.
When designing a tropical themed wedding, no color is too bold, no flower is too bright and no food is off limits. The bolder and more colorful…the better. Add a conga line and you’re all set for a fun night of celebration…island style.
