7 Destination Wedding Décor Tips

When it comes to your destination wedding, the decor is something you want to organize sooner than later. We have some helpful tips below that will give you a better idea of what you are in for during the setup of your special day. Let us know if you have any questions about these 7 destination wedding decor tips and we would be happy to assist.

1. Include the Beach in Some Way

What I love about destination weddings is that even if you would rather have your wedding ceremony away from the beach, you can still include it. How? Well, you can add a subtle touch, whether it’s sand, seashells, or even using tan and turquoise as your accent colours. It’s an excellent reminder of the tropical destination without having to be on the beach.

2. Colours

When it comes to picking the colours for your wedding, you might find yourself stuck or not sure what’s going to look right until you see the resort. My tip is to pick simple colours that are going to look great no matter what the existing décor of the resort may be. So, think colours that blend nicely and are more tropical than dark.


3. Incorporate the Culture

Now, this is more of a personal opinion, but I think it’s charming to include the country that you are in with the décor. You don’t have too, especially if you already have something in mind. It can be as simple as flowers, a mere token, or delicate fruit in the centrepiece.

4. Use Local Flowers

Speaking of flowers, do your research and find out the beautiful flowers you can get locally. It’s not that you can’t get the flowers you want, but you want to be prepared with your options. Also, this fact goes with a lot of décors, use what you can locally rather than trying to bring them. Especially from the UK.


5. Use a Personal Touch

Something that I love about wedding décor is that you can make it your own. Yes, all of us love Pinterest and find great examples that we like to use. However, it’s important to remember that every wedding is unique, and by adding something special you can truly make it your own.

6. Go Simple

Once again, how many of you are doomed by Pinterest? Sometimes I see how great some weddings can be and immediately want that for myself. It’s important to remember that a destination wedding is slightly limited because you won’t have all the vendors you want at your fingertips. That doesn’t mean your wedding won’t be extraordinary, just start simple.


7. Ask Guests for Help

So, you are dying to bring some of your décor? Don’t worry, you can. I highly recommend asking your guests to help you bring some of the items. You can distribute them to your guests, so no one has too much to carry. It will also save the cost of extra baggage for all those extra items. Also consider a welcome gift for your guests as a way of thanking them for their help planning your special day.


Finally, it’s a good idea to send an email to your guests to remind them to bring some of the items below.

  • Wedding Attire
  • Wedding gifts (If they are bringing them)
  • Asking if they can fit any decor items
  • Wedding Accessories
  • Music suggestions
  • Passports, Visa’s, Flight/Resort Information
  • List of activities or excursions they want to do
