Weekened Wedding - Tropical Destination Edition

Hello all and welcome to a Weekend Wedding in the Tropics! Enjoy!

(click for larger image)

A beautiful flowing strapless gown by Demetrios' Destination Romance line is accented by three simply but cute, colourful tea length bridesmaid dresses. Colour is everywhere! The beach ceremony is accented by pinks and oranges and overlooks the water. The bouquets are filled with red ginger and orange birds of paradise while being accented with pink. For guest favors, palm fans are great to fit the Tropical theme PLUS they are practical cause your wedding will be filled with tropical heat! Instead of a traditional cake, why not try something with a bit more island style like coconut? And who says that the reception has to be a formal sit down dinner? You're in the tropics and that's all about fun and relaxation. So, why not have a buffet of island style food in a lounge area with a great view?

It's the Little Touches ...

Don't forget to cast your vote and tomorrow's results will announce next week's colour scheme. Aloha!

What to Wear Wednesday - Tropical Destination Edition

Hello all and welcome to What to Wear Wednesday - Tropical Destination Edition!
When it comes to a tropical destination wedding or a tropical themed wedding, the idea is COLOUR! Don't be afraid to use pinks, greens, purples, blues, oranges, and yellows to your heart's content. This will help create or enhance the fun and festive nature of your wedding.
Like any beach wedding, you'll want to consider the fabrics that you choose so that you keep your bridal party comfortable. If you stick to light, flowing, and breatheable fabrics like cotton blends, chiffon, or organza, your bridal party will keep cool and fabulous!
