Top Tips For A Tropical Destination Wedding

Our top tips to consider when planning a tropical destination wedding.

  1. For brides, wear a simple dress with a short train, no big fluffy gown and no gloves. It’s too hot!

  2. For grooms, the suit is not a must; some grooms do not wear a jacket or have one made of a light material if you would like to wear a full suit. Some grooms even wear a smart pair of shorts!

  3. Use moisturiser or foundation with SPF and do not apply heavy makeup.

  4. Pick a simple hairstyle. An up-do sleek style is normally longerlasting and most convenient.

  5. Wear wedges instead of stilettos, which will sink into lawn or beach. You might want to share this tip with your female guests.

  6. Prepare mosquito repellent — a spray is handy and portable.

  7. Don’t over-decorate the venue. Simple and natural colours that blend with the ambiance will create a beautifully stylish backdrop for your special event and photos.

  8. A recommendation for some entertainment is light acoustic or piano with singer.

  9. Don’t overdo lighting, as it will be too hot and too bright. Flickering candles are romantic and perfect for a wedding!

  10. Check the weather forecast one week before the big day and book a marquee as a back-up option to be safe, in case the forecast doesn’t look good for an open-air celebration.
