Turn Your Wedding Into A Tropical Paradise

Oct 17, 2007
A popular trend in the wedding industry is destination weddings. Many couples find destination weddings to be convenient, less stressful, and inexpensive. The wonderful benefit to having a destination wedding is that the bride only has to worry about finding a bridal gown, wedding jewelry, and shoes because there is usually an onsite wedding planner that coordinates all of the other details. While having a destination wedding is the ideal situation for some couples, unfortunately, it is not convenient for others. What are some alternatives for couples that desire a tropical wedding within their hometown?

A couple might consider having their wedding at an outside location (during the appropriate season). With the combination of the right bridal attire, wedding jewelry, menu, and decorations, you can create your own tropical paradise right at home.

Bridal Attire

For a tropical wedding theme, appropriate attire for the bride would be a lightweight dress or a swimsuit and a sarong. The bridesmaids should wear attire that coordinates with the bride. The bride might consider intertwining a couple of banana leaves and creating a tropical inspired headpiece. Beach themed wedding jewelry is a suitable accessory. The groom and his groomsmen can get away with wearing a cotton shirt along with linen pants, khaki cut-offs, or tropical shorts.

Wedding Jewelry

Flowers are often used in the tropics as accessories during special occasions. Other popular accessories are made of bamboo, cowry, and river shells.

Menu

Fruit is a necessity for any tropical event. Some of your fruit selections may include but aren't limited to papaya, pineapple, mango, and strawberries. Seafood and pork are also very popular in the tropics.

Decorations

Using fruit as part of your décor is a sure way to add color to your event. You might consider using banana leaves as table skirts. This will also coordinate well the bride's headpiece. It is also a good idea to incorporate decorations that tie into the bride's wedding jewelry as well.

Although having a destination wedding has many benefits, it is not a practical alternative for some couples. Whether it is a financial, family, or work related issue, there are other options for couples to explore. It is important for couples to consider other options when making decisions about their wedding. Couples should pursue their dream of having a destination wedding by bringing the tropics to their hometown. Using the above suggestions and with careful planning it is possible to host a tropical wedding without leaving your own city.
