5 Destination Wedding Decor Tips You Need to Know

Just because you’re having a destination wedding, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have your dream setting. While you can always go all out and have an extravagant arrangement, most couples who are hosting a destination wedding choose not to do that as they want the natural backdrop of their choice of location to set the mood for their ceremony and not the usual over-the-top décor. White sand beaches are the perfect place to tie the knot with your beloved and you wouldn’t want to steal the beauty away from this picturesque location with excessive décor arrangements.

Here are a few tips that will help you enhance the gorgeous setting that surrounds you. Making notes, aren’t you?

Shell bouquets for the perfect beach wedding


Walking down the aisle with a bunch of flowers in your hand is classic, but if you want to do something different at your destination wedding, you can always opt for a bouquet made of beautiful shells instead of flowers. These kinds of bouquets are easy to construct and will help the bride make a statement like never before.

While choosing flowers, keep it real

It is best to use fresh flowers to complement the natural beauty of your surroundings. Fuller blooms are always more romantic. You can opt for different colored flowers so that your setting looks like a beautiful riot of colors. Gorgeous bouquets look great and help set a romantic mood without breaking the bank.

Set your tables keeping your wedding party in mind

If you have 100-150 guests, use small square tables as they will give your guests an opportunity to have real conversations rather than just make small talk. However, if your wedding party doesn’t consist of more than 20-30 people, opt for one long table as this kind of setting feels more intimate with a smaller number of guests. Avoid round tables at destination weddings as they are too traditional and feel corporate.

Include your destination wedding location even for indoor events

Wouldn’t you want to make the most of your location if you’re having a destination wedding? If you’re having 3-4 ceremonies, you might not want to have them all out in the open. For instance, if you’re having a beach wedding, you might choose to host your welcome party and wedding ceremony by the beach and the reception in the resort’s ballroom. But even for indoor events, you can include your beach setting beautifully. Whether its sand or seashells, you can add a subtle touch using tan and turquoise as your accent colors.

Incorporate the culture of your destination into your wedding


Add something local to make your destination wedding décor surreal. It’s always charming to include within your décor elements of the country that you’re in. You don’t have to go all out. You can simply add local flowers, a token or a local fruit in the centrepiece to make your destination wedding décor come alive.
