Even if you aren’t able to travel for your wedding, who’s to say you can’t imbue a tropical motif into the décor of the day? If you’re a fan of the relaxed island vibe of the Caribbean or Hawaii, or if you’d like your destination fête to honor the natural setting around the space, there are plenty of fun and vibrant ideas to use in the design of your ceremony and reception. Give your big day a "vacation" vibe with some of the following ideas:
The use of certain blooms in centerpieces and table runners will fill your guests’ noses with an unmistakable scent of a lush rainforest. Make revelers feel like they’re on a beach while on an island getaway with strings of lights dangling overhead suspended from palm trees. Incorporate large tropical leaves into floral arrangements to add a burst of greenery into the mix. Additionally, palm fronds can be made into extensive table runners and can be bedecked with small votives and woven vines with bold-hued perennials.
