HAIR COMES THE BRIDE!
Opt for a loosely coiffed hair style which will outlast the sun and salty air. A fishtail braid, loose chignon or upswept bun are just the ticket for an unforgettable evening.
You’ve been dreaming of this day since you were six so we’re not about to tell you to which dress you should say yes! Do avoid satin and lots of heavy layers. Choose light weight fabrics like lace and chiffon.
The groom and groomsmen can do linen suits or guayaberas for some coastal sophistication.
Have fun choosing your blooms. The islands tropical blooms can range from vibrant sunset hues to soft romantic colour schemes.
Add a Nautical touch to bouquets and boutonnieres by having them accented with seashells.
Capture the seaside spirit; opt for a naked cake topped with swirly butter cream delightfully decorated with ocean themed fondant details.
PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
The bride and bridesmaids can step lively in beaded barefoot sandals made by local artisans.
Encourage your guests to get footloose by providing comfy flip flops.
BEAT THE HEAT
Select “cool favors” like fans for your guest to use during the ceremony.
Have bridesmaids carry umbrellas in the wedding colour palette.
Serve signature libations to honor the theme in sunset or aquatic colours.
