timberland earthkeepers chelsea A Colorful Tropical Wedding Theme
Now that summer is here my thoughts are turning to wonderful summer wedding themes. Here I have looked at a tropical theme which provides a colorful and eye catching color palette.
Whether your wedding is on a distant tropical shore (you lucky things) or closer to home, this theme will work anywhere and really gives a sense of anything goes Here is my take on creating a tropical wedding scheme that everyone will love.
Colors Go for vibrant fuchsia pink, bright red, orange, lime green and aqua blue for a fiesta style scheme. This opens up many possibilities for your decorations, accessories and flowers something your florist will love you for
If you want something a little more subtle then choose a combination of two colors teamed with white. For instance, try combining fuchsia pink, aqua blue and white; or lime green, aqua blue and white.
Locations As mentioned this scheme can really work anywhere. Beaches perhaps offer the best venue, but gardens, marquees and open spaces can work equally as well.
This theme doesn’t have to be confined to a summer wedding either. Beat the winter blues by using for a winter wedding; just find a location with a large room so you have a space that is light and airy opulent ballrooms would be a step too far with this scheme
Food and Drink If you are outside then a BBQ is perfect with some tropical inspired dishes.
Serve up a refreshing lemon sorbet for dessert the perfect foil for spicy Jamaican food
Serve up Pina Colada’s during cocktail hour or some white rum punch complete with added tropical fruits. For the nonalcoholic drinkers put together a refreshing fruit punch instead.
Decorations Look for some colorful paper garlands, funky garden candles for outdoors and colorful glass candle holders. Make your centerpieces from carved fruits and provide your guests with some colorful confetti in the form of orange and pink rose petals.
If you are having an outdoors buffet then let your guests help themselves with some colorful picnic tableware and glasses. Afterwards they can relax on a fun hammock or take some shade under a colorful parasol.
Place Cards and Wedding Favors Make pretty name cards from cocktail umbrella’s by adding a name tag wrapped around the stick. Or print your own name and table number cards at home, add in some colorful tropical motifs such as hibiscus flowers, pineapples and pink flamingos. Why not make your table numbers places instead by using postcards from your favorite tropical paradises.
For your wedding favors your could give out fun shaped cookies, candies in palm tree shaped boxes or create beautiful favor boxes by adding a gorgeous tropical flower head to the top.
Finishing Touches Have your wedding cake made with tropical fruit flavors either in sponge or in a cheesecake variety. Choose a different flavor for each tier and make sure they are colored accordingly, for instance one orange, one lemon, one lime; fill in the space between each tier with corresponding fresh fruits.
Have your guests entertained with a steel band. They will create the laidback feel of the Caribbean and get your guests in the party mood.
