Whether it’s the heat of the sun’s rays or an impromptu bout of rain, outdoor beach ceremonies can be unpredictable as they are beautiful. What better way to treat your guests than to offer them shelter in the form of customized umbrellas that tie in directly with your wedding style and colours? [Search umbrellas at weddingfavours.ca]
Favour Your Guests:
It’s fun and easy to get creative with wedding favours. Consider ideas that tie in the island such as seen above: message in bottles, maracas that guests shake when the couple share their first married kiss, ‘go cups’ that are customized with your monogram or message and contain goodies such as sunscreen, gum and mini water guns.
Embrace Local Florals:
Instead of trying to source floral types you found on Pinterest, check out the vibrant, lush colours and shapes of the flowers found locally to your destination. Embrace all things destination and go with the flow!
Write Love notes:
Consider writing a note to thank friends and family for coming so far for your celebration. Leave the note in the welcome bags or attach them to guest favours.
Go for Luxe Accessories:
Just because the idea of sand and flip flops tend to go along with Destination Weddings, doesn’t mean you have to play it casual. Choose blinged out flip flops. Wear designer heels which can be taken off or traded for flip flops during the ceremony. Accessories with a high end fascinator and gorgeous jewellery. There’s no reason you can’t be beautiful on the beach!
Host a full reception:
Many resorts automatically include a group table or section at an à la carte restaurant for the reception as part of their minimum wedding package. Some couples go totally casual by simply reserving a table at the buffet for everyone in attendance. And others go all out. Consider reserving an entire restaurant, ballroom or part of the beach for a full reception, complete with charger plates, chair covers, centrepieces, and more. Polish off the evening with a dance in the hall or on the beach. Nothing is out of the question at most resorts and often reasonable costs will probably be a nice surprise!
