Laid back and comfy clothes, lots of beach vibe, flowers and palm trees and sunshiny smiles. Nope, you’re not headed for a summer vacation — you’re heading to a tropical-themed wedding.
Incorporate the beach and summer vibe in your invitation. If you want to make it real, then choose to DIY your programs with a watercolor illustration of a beach scene. Tie it with a straw ribbon to add the beach vibe to it.
Pick out a simple wedding dress. Stick to the tropical theme. Pick out an elegant yet simple dress. Go for a chapel-length train. Wear a fresh of garland of flowers on your head. Or simply wear a frangipani on your hair. Accessorize your dress with a pair of funky shoes or an off-beat purse.
Think big and bold and colorful. For the flowers on your bouquet or decors, go for gerbera daisies in different pops of colors – like pink and yellow. Throw in some bright orange roses liven it up. Let the bridesmaids wear bold colored dresses. The boys can come in a regular suit, but funkify their ties with bold blue and yellow stripes.
Tie big colorful bows on the chairs out of raffia. Attach sand dollars or starfishes on the bows. For the reception tables, spruce it up with colorful table cloth – use fish bowls as center pieces, fill them up with sand and add some beach shells.
Give out shabby chic picture frames as wedding favors. Attach a shell or a starfish on it. For the wedding cake, feature the tropical beach theme. Pound cake with cream frosting is perfect. Add some chocolate shaped-starfishes or seashells to add some glam. Serve a delectable display of appetizers of tropical fruits, cheeses and nuts for hors d’oeuvres. Pick out barbequed shrimps, lobster medallions or citrus-grilled vegetables – anything that reminds you of the tropics and the sunshiny beaches.
