With such an amazing setting to your wedding celebrations, there is nothing else to do but make sure you truly embrace your amazing tropical destination. Put together a unique selection of beautiful tropical flowers in your bouquet, plan a light, fresh menu that showcases the beautiful produce of the region, or choose a vibrant colour scheme you wouldn’t see at a more traditional wedding, with the tropics as your backdrop you can do things a little differently.
Opt for a romantic dining setting out under the stars. With temperate weather year round, a tropical wedding perfectly lends itself to a balmy outdoor celebration. Deck the tables in fresh flowers and greenery, light up the area with glittering candles or festive lighting, and it will feel like a tropical dream space.
A good photographer will know all the tips and tricks for capturing the most beautiful wedding photos, but also be sure to let them know you’d like to include various beautiful backdrops in your images. From the azure blue of the ocean and sky and lush greenery of the tropical rainforest to the sophisticated resort pool area and of course the glittering white beaches, you couldn’t ask for a more picture perfect setting.
Chances are if you’ve chosen a tropical destination as your wedding location, friends and family may have to travel to get there. So why not invite them to stay a few days ahead of the wedding to make the most of this special time. Spend days lazing and laughing by the pool, celebrate into the night with a cocktail party or simply all relax together, relishing this opportunity to bring everyone together.
The weather in the tropics can be fickle, beautiful and clear one second then raining like a monsoon the next. To avoid any stressful last minute changes, be prepared in the event of rain by talking through alternate venue options with your wedding planner. Plan your décor so that it can easily be transferred inside, then no matter the weather prediction your special day will still go off without a hitch.
On the other hand, tropical wedding destinations can be quite warm, so to keep everyone calm and cool, on guest’s seats or at the entrance to the aisle, gift paper fans to aid the flow of breeze.
With all the planning and organisation leading up to the big day, by the time it finally arrives you’ve earned a well-deserved break. When you reach your wedding destination it is time to take in a big breathe of that clean tropical air, relax and let your wedding planner take care of all the last minute details. Book in for a romantic couples massage, relish this time with family and friends, and after the celebrating is over, why not stay for a few extra days…
