A tropical wedding is characterized by vivid colors, a variety of fruits and flowers, traditional Hawaiian music, and a cheerful mood. Let’s consider what points one should keep in mind to transform the chosen venue into a real tropical paradise.
1. Decoration. Although tropical weddings are associated with a celebration on a sea coast, it is possible to transform any venue into paradise. First of all, the design of a wedding venue should be very bright and vivid. Its decor should be complemented by such details as shells, palm trees, coconuts, tropical fruits, bright fabrics, monstera leaves, wicker accessories, starfish, greenery, and flowers everywhere. A traditional registration arch should be decorated with palm leaves and flowers. Newlyweds’ path to the wedding arch can be framed with shells.
Create a unique tropical photo zone using exotic flowers. It will be a wonderful background to take photos. Tables also should include tropical details. For example, put a palm leaf under a plate instead of a napkin. Create unique floral compositions that will be placed on tables. A flower Lei garland serves as an indispensable element of tropical decoration. A toastmaster can distribute them among guests upon entry.
2. Newlyweds’ outfits. Speaking about newlyweds’ garments, frequently they refuse traditional white dresses and black suits. A tropical wedding is all about the abundance of colors, flowers, and fruits. Thus, it is advisable to choose multicolored clothes with such patterns as fruits, tropical plants, animals, birds, etc. A groom can choose summer shorts with a T-shirt of bright color. A bride will look stunning in a skirt with a top. An appropriate bridal hairstyle will make up the whole image. Untidy curls or loose hair serve as the best options. Do not forget about traditional accessories: flowers in hair or a wreath, a tropical flower Lei garland, or a bracelet.
3. Dress code. Tropical-themed weddings imply the appropriate dress code. Either newlyweds or guests should properly choose outfits that will correspond to the wedding theme. If you’re invited to a tropical wedding, prefer bright clothes with floral or animal prints. Your attire should be vivid, lively, and multicolored.
4. A wedding menu. The menu deserves particular attention. It should contain a great number of dishes of fruits (coconuts, oranges, kiwis, lemons, grapefruits, etc.) and seafood. It is recommended to create a mini bar where fresh juice or cocktails will be prepared. Use coconut peels with straws to serve beverages. A wedding cake can be of bright color. Its main decoration will be tropical fruits, flowers, or plants. Modern cuisine is ready to offer a great diversity of designs.
