Summer Wedding Inspo: Tropical Wedding

Posted on July 5, 2016 by in Arts & Crafts, Inspiration, Sweets

These days wedding decor is more important than ever! It’s not enough to just have a wedding, your wedding should have a theme, a color palette and an all over cohesive feel.

Summertime allows for a more fun and light decor theme. One trend we are loving is the tropical inspired theme.

Here are five things you’ll need to make this theme a wedding reality! More glam, less backyard bbq!

1. Soft Color Palette: Whites and blush tones are the perfect accent color when paired with tropical greens. They allow for the green to pop out all the while keeping the event classy and formal! Throw in a metallic color like a gold for a special pop.


2. Relaxed Attire: We’re not saying khakis and sundresses, just perhaps not the usual black tuxedo! We LOVE this navy suit on our groom. It’s a young and fresh spin on a classic that fits with the mood of the wedding.


3. Pineapples: Pineapples are so popular in the summer, why not use it in your decor? We combine a mix of pineapples in our desserts, as well as some gold spray painted ones around the tables! Our favours also incorporate pineapples as well as the place settings. And how cute are these donuts!?

4. Leaves: Using leaves throughout the ceremony is a great way to tie it all in together. Try tying a leaf garland on large balloons, or using small leaves to mark the table numbers. Larger leaves also are perfect for making cocktail signs! All you need is a gold calligrapher pen or marker!


5. Consistency: Make sure to use tropical elements starting with your invitations. Having little elements in every component is a sure fire way to leave a lasting impression on your guests.
