Whether your planning your pre-wedding party, bachelorette bash (Southern ladies, we're talking to you!) or even day-of decor, the pineapple is the perfect addition to your tropical wedding aesthetic. The delicious summer fruit can actually double as a festive accent at your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or even a tropical destination wedding— and no, we don't just mean serving piña coladas. Pineapples can not only add a cutesy and playful addition to parties and showers, but they can also be an elegant touch to the wedding decor itself. From centerpieces to floral arrangements, we rounded up five unexpected and surprisingly stylish ways to mix pineapples into your tablescape. (Bonus: The prickly fruit symbolizes hospitality, so it's a perfect way to greet your guests!)
Are there anything cuter than these pineapple centerpiece accents? Doubtful. These tiny additions, styled here by Beijos wedding designer, will add a perfect extra pop of decor to your reception dinner tables without cluttering the space.
Nothing says summer celebration like this adorable pineapple cocktail creation. Use the inside of the fruit to make your cocktail, and save the outside as a replacement for glass! (Just be sure to whittle down the pines.)
Anddd A Cocktail Kit
Take your cocktail game to the next level by adding some adorable pineapple stirrers to your drinks and brightening up your menu with a few pineapple prints. Plus, opting for different color stirrers can help your guests differentiate their glasses once they've knocked back a few too many drinks.
