If you’re planning on jetting off to the tropics to tie the knot, infuse your wedding day with tons of bright, colorful touches inspired by your slice of paradise. Carry a bouquet of tropical flowers and leaves (pink ginger, birds of paradise, orchids, anthuriums, monsteras, palm fronds), tuck a hibiscus flower into your hairstyle, line the path to the reception with tiki torches, and serve island-inspired cocktails like mojitos and mai tais.
When it comes to your wedding cake, embrace the tropical setting and embellish your dessert with on-theme motifs like pineapples, palm leaves, and freshly picked flowers. And be sure that your confection is tropical through and through—ask your baker to incorporate flavors like coconut, mango, lime, passion fruit, and guava into the cake layers and fillings. The crowning touch: a fun and playful topper that highlights the tropical setting for your celebration—check out some of our favorites below.
