How to Plan the Perfect Tropical Destination Wedding

Spring is out in full force, with summer lingering just around the corner – and its got us thinking about tropical destination weddings! Our whole team has been traveling to warm locales recently, and we agree that there is nothing quite like a beach wedding to ring in the beginning of a sunny and wonderful marriage.

Here are our top five tropical destination considerations and inspirations for your spring or summer wedding:

Consideration #1: Destination location – the place you choose to get married will affect a number of other wedding particulars (like local cuisine, weather, florals), so be sure to do your research when deciding between destinations like Hawaii, Mexico, and the Bahamas.

Consideration #2: Wedding size and matching venue – are you more the small bespoke event or full family affair type? Either way, there is a beach or garden lawn in paradise that is perfectly tailored to your needs and wedding party, from 1 guest to 500+!

 

 

Consideration #3: Attire and dress code – if you’re having a beach wedding, you have an opportunity to play with color, silhouette, and your overall wedding day look! Opt for lighter weight fabrics or shorter dresses in humid climates, and remember that the comfort of your guests should be high on your list of priorities.

 

 

Consideration #4: Locally sourced and appropriate décor – the tropics are known for bright colors, abundant flora and fauna, and breathtaking landscapes, so take advantage! A bright bridal bouquet sporting both succulents and local flowers is a great way to incorporate the destination into the décor, and create a seamless wedding look. Your photographer should be experienced in outdoor photography, your caterer should offer destination-infused fare, and your wedding should reflect your location and style as a couple.

 

Consideration #5: Tiny details – use these to make the wedding your own! Not into fiesta colors or tacos + tapas? Choose a resort theme or make your décor scheme flamingo pink with hints of palm! This cake topper pulls the look together, and takes a standard naked cake to next-level tropical paradise!

Consideration #6: Guest experience – they have travelled across land, sea and maybe even continents to join you in the celebration of your marriage. Guests often tend to do less research and planning when traveling for a wedding than they would for their own personal vacation, so be sure to set them up for a smooth experience. It’s all in the details: sending your save the date well before the typical 6 month deadline, welcome bags with thoughtful details like a clear itinerary of the wedding events, things to do in the area and maps with instructions on getting to the wedding (don’t expect them to rely on google)!

 

Spring Veil Trends

A veil is a bride’s piece de resistance: a finishing touch on an almost perfect wedding look that lets the world know she’s ready to walk down the aisle towards her future happiness.  Historically speaking, veils have been popular since the the Hellenistic period in ancient Greece, and have always been a symbol of beauty or nobility and grace – so it follows that a bride’s choice of veil ought to be perfect for her vision of herself on her wedding day. There are infinite style choices to be made – long or short, lace or tulle, white or ivory – and not every bride opts to wear a veil during her ceremony or reception. The one thing that all of these bridal looks have in common is a brilliant headpiece, whether it’s feathered or cathedral length! Here, we’ve assembled a list of the top spring veil trends, as seen on the runways at fashion week, and everywhere on Pinterest. Which look will you choose for your wedding day?

When you think of St. Patrick’s Day, the luck of the Irish, and four leaf clovers, it’s rare that you might associate those things with a styled event – but that’s exactly what many wedding couples are doing this month. Holiday-centric events can sometimes be theme-y and cheesy – but if done right, the Irish background can be subtle and deeply meaningful. The trick is in the execution, and the minor details that help hint (not SHOUT) that the event has a special tie to this internationally recognized Irish day of celebration.

When an engaged couple starts to think about their wedding, and the things that make their relationship unique, a certain time or place can recollect special memories or mile mark a particular moment in their love story.

We love the idea of St. Patrick’s Day serving as wedding inspiration – perhaps the bride’s family is Irish, or the groom bought his fiancé her first cocktail (from him) at a St. Patrick’s day soiree. One can even be so bold as to borrow from the Irish when coming up with a color palette or ceremony backdrop. Whatever the meaning, emerald green and gold accents are a delightful combination for an early spring wedding, and we can’t help but gush over the real weddings and photo shoots that we found to inspire this collection of inspiring images. Imagine lush green ferns, emerald satin bridesmaids dresses, and pops of gilded flatware and votive candles as far as the eye can see – Erin go Bragh!

1. The PERFCT emerald engagement ring, set against antique lace and a neutral bridal look.

2. A dreamy daytime ceremony location set amongst rolling green hills…

3. Bespoke details for your photographer to capture, such as a ruined rock wall (for your escort cards), or a kelly green barn door that leads into the reception.

4. Homegrown details (like the artichoke escort cards in this display styled by our very own Kaella Wilson) and a modern motif linen paired with tall taper candles keep the table from feeling too stuffy.

5. Glittering tabletop linens, bespoke emerald paper goods, and miniature bud vases filled with greenery keep the look fresh.

6. Set against a vintage velvet club chair, this hand tied bridal bouquet packs serious punch with numerous green varietals, including succulents!

7. Artful ruffles, cascading silhouettes, and succulent-centric maid’s bouquets lend nicely to the natural Irish aesthetic across the wedding party.

8. An art deco vibe pervades the cake table, that is inspired by green bottles from the roaring 20′s, and the gold of an Irish Whiskey.

9. The bride keeps the look clean with gently falling curls, an asymmetrical bridal silhouette, and and emerald inspired collar necklace that steals the show.
