Tropical Wedding Dreams

I find myself daydreaming about the tropics a lot – laying on the beach, soaking up some sun, a piña colada in hand. Who can argue that that sounds like paradise?! Which is why it’s no surprise that getting married on a faraway, beautiful beach sounds too good to be true. But you don’t necessarily have to plan a luxurious destination getaway to get the tropical wedding of your dreams!

Coconuts, Pineapples, Papaya, Oh my!

Incorporate the taste of the tropics into your wedding! And I don’t mean just with food, I’m talking bout decor, drinks, and fun! Use pineapples as focal points in your centerpieces. Serve coconuts instead of cocktail glasses and fill them with deliciously flavorful drinks. Use tropical greenery like banana leaves to create charming place settings.

Flowers that Wow

The colors of the tropical islands are part of the immense beauty that draws so many there, so why not incorporate these into your bouquet or centerpieces? Bright flowers and lush greenery make for unforgettable floral arrangements.

Taste of the Islands

One of the easiest, and most delicious, ways to incorporate the tropics into your big day — add some tropical flavor! Serve pineapple skewer appetizers, have fresh fruit adorn the dessert table, or cut a decadent coconut cake with your new spouse by your side.

Travel to the Tropics

Maybe traveling to the tropics is reserved for your honeymoon, but that doesn’t mean you have to reserve travel inspired decor, too! Use vintage suitcases to display your escort cards on the welcome table, or as your card basket. Give away luggage tags as wedding favors to thank your guests. If you’ve already visited a tropical destination with your significant other, it’s fun to use your photos or souvenirs in your decor, too.
