Destination weddings are increasingly becoming a popular way to tie the knot. While the pristine beaches and turquoise water are the perfect backdrop as you say “I Do”, incorporate bright summer colors into your palate such as orange, pink, or blue. Prior to the big day, ask your guests their shoe size and purchase flip flops in your color scheme. Put them in ice buckets with a sign allowing guests to take a pair to wear throughout your wedding or give as a wedding favor. If you are planning on exchanging vows during a hot summer month, you might want to consider putting parasols and fans in buckets by the back row of chairs for guests to use for shade as well. Hire a steel drum player for an enhanced tropical island ambiance during your cocktail hour and serve a tropical cocktail such as a tequila sunrise or rum punch for your signature drink. Don’t forget to set up some activities to participate in during your stay. Your guests will be happy you thought of them and you are sure to make many memories that will last a lifetime.
