Love in your eyes and sand between your toes – what could possibly be better on your wedding day? Here are ideas for upping the romance factor of your destination wedding in easy, breezy ways.
Invitation to paradise
Like the invitation on our board says, make sure your guests know that Love is in the Air. Send a save the date as soon as you’ve set the date so they can mark their calendars and arrange time off. Then follow up with a destination wedding invitation that will set the tone for your celebration.
Keep your destination wedding gown and accessories simple. Think floaty fabric that will catch the breeze, simple sandals or just a great pedicure and bare feet, and a bunch of local blossoms for your bouquet. A veil might be a hassle in the beach breeze, so try on a flower behind your ear or a sparkly hair accent to catch the sunlight.
Keep it light
Prove that all-white wedding décor isn’t stuffy. A reception room with crisp white linens on the table and paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling becomes a canvas for you to add your destination wedding color. Aqua will bring in the color of the sea. Bright tropical flowers will add pizzazz.
Have fun in the sun
Rustic accents like driftwood painted with directions and sweet messages will make your guests smile. Offer welcome baskets so everyone will feel ready to kick off their shoes and relax with you. Offer paper parasols in tall galvanized buckets to help shade bare shoulders.
Keep your destination wedding cake simple and fun. White frosting with a scattering of golden sugar to mimic sand and tiny beach chair cake toppers will a yummy ending to your dinner.
