Hearts & Flowers – Planning a Tropical Island Themed Wedding

By Deborah Lewis

Tropical Wedding Flowers

Tropical Leaf Partyware and Home Decor Years ago, back in the 80's, there was a TV show that used to come on that I really enjoyed, it was called Fantasy Island. I'm sure most of you remember it with it's romantic story lines and the mysterious Mr Rourke and his side kick Tattoo who were always endeavoring to fulfill the fantasies of their numerous guests.
.
Truth be said what I enjoyed most about the show was it's breath taking scenery, majestic waterfalls, lush tropical landscape and beautiful flowers.
.

If you looked closely, one tropical plant always stood out, the lovely, heart shaped Anthurium or flamingo flower as it is often called. Anthuriums have heart shaped waxy leaves that come in a myriad of colors ranging from deep red to pink, white, yellow, orange or green. In the center is a fleshy spike called a spadix that juts out.


If you are looking for a unique idea for a tropical island themed wedding you might consider making the beautiful Anthurium the centerpiece of your wedding. Eye catching and exotic, it will give your wedding a truly tropical feel. Let's now get down to the nitty gritty of some great ideas on how to incorporate this exquisite plant into your nuptials.

Tropical Wedding Location & Decoration

When you are planning a tropical island wedding your first idea might be to make it a beach wedding, but who said it has to be on the beach? I always loved the idea of getting married next to a flowing waterfall or a small secluded cove complete with a floral arch or overhang.


This is where you can add in the gorgeous anthuriums. Overlay palms, white orchids and of course exotic Anthuriums. Here is where you might be careful as the Anthuriums are already so eye popping they might over shadow any other blooms.

You can also have a lovely arch at a beach wedding also, the location is entirely up to you, but remember, find some place unique. After you have created a lovely arch place potted Anthuriums all along the bridal walk and alter.

Tropical Wedding Table Centerpieces

Anthuriums and tropical flowers are known and beloved for there exotic beauty and fragrance. When planning centerpieces for your reception tables, you might display lovely vases or baskets and fill them with sprays of orchids and Anthuriums. Red or pink Anthuriums are most popular and stand out with there exquisite coloring.

Other centerpieces might include hibiscus, gingers and bird of paradise, that you can mix in, but be careful, Anthuriums will always steal the show.

Tropical Wedding Favors

There is an endless choice of wedding favors to choose from for weddings, but for a Tropical wedding you might choose bottle stoppers, jars of personalized honey, key to my heart bottle openers or love measuring spoons. Depending on the color of your favor boxes, top off with exotic orchids, hibiscus or fragrant plumeria as decor along with gauze ribbons. Your favors will be a true stand out your guests will adore.

Luau or Tropical Wedding Feast

Tropical Flamingo LUAU Partyware Set CustomHere are some delicious ideas when planning a tropical island wedding feast. Along the wedding reception walls add tiki torches and palm fans. Place bamboo place mats on the tables along with bamboo forks and knives. Island food is delicious so go ahead and splurge, your guests will be thrilled.

Tropical Wedding Drinks

When planning your reception menu, include rum whiskey, tequila. Mixed drinks can be as extravagant as you like with Margaritas, banana or strawberry Daiquiris, smoothies and Pina Coladas. Offer up in coconut cups adorned with tiny umbrellas. Of course always include cut up fresh fruit such as pineapple, mango and papaya.

If you truly want the island taste, offer roasted pig, Teriyaki chicken, coconut shrimp, lobster, grilled swordfish crusted with macadamia nuts. Other dishes might include rice pilaf, poi, sweet potatoes mashed with coconut, Kona coffee and pineapple upside down cake. Your menu choices are up to you.

I hope I have given you some great ideas for a tropical island delight with Anthuriums being a focal point when planning your wedding. Go for color and unique ideas, this is your time so make happen.

How To Plan A Nautical Wedding 2018

Pkan The Perfect Nautical Themed Wedding With These Great Design Ideas

nautical wedding invitations

By Bridget Mora

The crisp classic flair of a nautical theme wedding is timeless. Always appealing, classic, and elegant, it is hard to go wrong with this inspiration for your wedding design. Get started on your wedding planning by checking out these wonderful nautical wedding details.

Nautical Wedding Location Ideas

The first place to begin when planning a nautical inspired wedding is by selecting an appropriate location. Without a doubt, a venue by the sea would be best. A yacht club would be particularly good, as would an outdoor setting overlooking a harbor or the ocean. Of course, if you live in a landlocked area, many other wedding venues can be decorated with a nautical theme, including country clubs, backyards, and other outdoor sites.

Nautical Wedding Colors

It would seem virtually impossible to plan a nautical wedding without including the color navy in your color palette, so why fight it? Add a bright white and apple green for a fresh modern take on nautical design, or add red and dashes of yellow to the navy for a very traditional nautical palette. The overall look of the wedding decor should be very crisp and streamlined. Stripes, solids, and one or two nautical motifs will be ideal.

nautical wedding invitations and decorations personalizedNautical Wedding Motifs

Some of the best nautical motifs include anchors, sailboats, nautical flags, compasses, and ships' wheels (and maybe whales for the ultra-preppy bride and groom!). Pick one or two of these motifs to focus on, rather than jumbling up a whole bunch of them. It will lend the wedding design more clarity and precision.


Be wary of adding too many shells, sand dollar, or starfish elements to your nautical wedding, lest it blend into the more generic beach wedding theme. Think regatta, not just seashore. Once you have your signature wedding motif selected, you can carry it throughout the entire wedding, from the invitations to the menu cards to the favors.

Nautical Wedding Flower Ideas

Classic flowers work best for a nautical wedding. If you have selected a green and navy color palette, the obvious choice is green hydrangeas. They make beautiful bouquets, gorgeous ceremony decorations, and stunning centerpieces – how perfect and easy is that? White roses and white tulips would be other great flower choices. If you have opted for red and yellow accents to the nautical navy, tightly gathered bouquets of red tulips or round nosegays of yellow button mums would be ideal. Wrap the stems with navy and white grosgrain ribbon secured with pearl tipped pins in a straight row down the handle.


Nautical Wedding Attire


Nautical Bridal Gown

The wedding attire for a nautical wedding will naturally be crisp and classic, without being too formal or stuffy. An A-line bridal gown is ideal, in a fabric like silk mikado, organza, faille, or silk pique. This is not the time for the poufy satin ballgown with tons of beading! Add a peal necklace and simple fresh makeup to complete the look.

Nautical Bridesmaid Dresses

As for the bridesmaids, knee length strapless dresses in navy would be just about perfect. If you want, a patterned dress would also be a great option, either in a nautical motif (think Vineyard Vines) or a striped design in your wedding colors. Once again, the classic pearl necklace is ideal to complete the effect.

Nautical Groom Suit

The groom and groomsmen will look great in navy jackets with khaki trousers (or red one if your wedding is on Nantucket). Choose striped ties or ones with a nautical theme to complement the bridesmaid dresses. Another great option for the guys is khaki suits.

Nautical Wedding Decorations



Finish off your nautical theme wedding with an eye for details. Little touches like lanterns on the reception tables, sailor's knots, and mini sailboats for escort cards will bring your theme to life without going overboard (pardon the pun). The understated elegance of a nautical theme is always beautiful for a wedding, whether you and your groom are seasoned sailors or total landlubbers.

Ombre color is white (or other) and another color that gradually blends creating a hypnotic fusion of shades. It is the hot color trend for 2018 and 2019 weddings. Only the daring bride will be brave enough to pull off this modern style which is a significant deviation from traditional white or full color theme wedding dresses.

Moody Blue Ombre Wedding Theme
Ombre is dramatic and we especially love the aqua ombre theme due to its versatility for Spring, Beach, Summer and even Winter Weddings. How you dress the rest of your wedding will dictate how fluid ombre fits into the season and the setting of your wedding.

Beach Themed Flower Arrangements Trending 2017 and 2018 Weddings

Flower Arrangements for a Beach Wedding

By Lora Davis

Beach weddings are romantic and the flowers you choose need to match your wedding venue. You will need flowers for the bridal bouquet, the boutonnieres, bridesmaid bouquets, wedding and reception decorations, etc. They play an important part of any wedding. For a beach wedding, you need flowers that reflect that theme. You should choose flowers that are resilient and can withstand the heat. Some of these flowers can include tropical flowers such as:

• Bird-of-paradise


Cymbidium orchids


Heliconias


Anthurium


These are all colorful flowers that will not wilt in the heat and will add color to the beach wedding.

Beach wedding bouquets

For the bride's bouquet, you should choose something sophisticated with a combination of three or four flowers. You will need for the bridesmaid a floral arrangement that is not as fancy. An eye catching wedding bouquet could consist of a cascading bouquet that is created out of chartreuse flowers, hosta leaves, cymbidium orchids, leucadendron, and gloriosia lilies. To give this cascading bouquet touches of softness add some satin ribbons. For the bridesmaid the ideal bouquet using one flower would look great. For example, the bouquet could be a solid bouquet made of tiny orchids or calla lilies. It should be in the bridal theme colors and tied with a coordinating ribbon. By keeping the bridesmaid bouquet's simply there is more focus on the bride's bouquet.

Beach wedding centerpieces

For these, mix flowers with traditional beach items like pebbles, seashell, starfish, or paper boats. You could use a rattan planter and fill it with long stemmed calla lilies and white orchids. You could also use small flowers in a small vase surrounded with pebbles and shells. You could also use candles with scents that remind people of the beach and surround them with shells and pebbles. If you use small centerpieces, you could use one or two small ones or one large one per table.


In conclusion

What many brides do not do is consider the climate where the wedding is being held. Yes, a beach wedding's weather is going to be hot but depending on the time of the wedding the temperature can vary. If you are having an early morning wedding make sure that the flowers you choose will stay fresh throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. Talk to the florist and ask if they have experience with choosing flowers for beach weddings. If they do not then you should find a florist that does.

Some brides choose a resort package to have the wedding, reception, and honeymoon and in many of the packages, floral arrangements are included. If you do not like the floral arrangement, ask if it can be changed to what you like.

A fusion of two cultures isn't about holding two different ceremonies with clearly defined differences between the cultural celebrations and ceremony. A true fusion is a single ceremony, celebration which ‘fuses' both cultures together. How to create this Indian English wedding fusion seamlessly is featured here with tips about bridal wear, music, food and more.

English To Indian Fusion Bridal Looks

The modern Indian Wedding embraces Western themes – making a fusion easier

Your Indian English wedding will dispense with the Kancheevaram saree, bare bejewelled feet and groom on a white steed. These will be replaced with designer bridal wear, strappy heeled shoes, limousines and stylish modern touches that have a more Western influence. The beauty of the Indian wedding though will be weaved throughout and will maintain a  dominant presence with careful styling.

Let's take a look at ideas for Indian English fusion wedding dresses

For a wedding dress to be fused with Indian and English bride influences, it needs to be mermaid shape or a simple drop line dress. The dress should have delicate details, lace, crystal embellishments and be everso slightly ‘bling'! Vintage wedding dresses featuring lots of lace and simple untailored shapes are great for creating fusion looks. Add a traditional wedding saree as a veil and the look is complete.


First up is a lacy mermaid style dress which features red floral lace design. I've featured this dress in the moodboard above to give you an idea as to how this dress can be fused with Indian bridal wear traditions. This is a great Indian English fusion wedding dress as it incorporates the English fashion shape (mermaid) with the traditional red color of Indian bridal wear.

Accessories

Indian make-up fused with English will give a slightly lighter look than traditional Indian bride make-up. The exotic look however remains with smokey eyes and black eye liner.Indian English Fusion Wedding MakeUp

For brides on a tight budget the fact that costume jewellery is now popular and accepted as an alternative to heavy gold and diamonds is great news. Also English brides have been taking from Indian bridal culture by wearing the matha patti hair accessories previously only seen in indian culture. This too makes a fusion of Indian and English much easier to pull-off. As an Indian bride you can retain the headwear glamor that is traditional in your culture.


Food
Indian English Fusion Wedding Food

Check out the moodboards for ideas of how to incorporate Indian food, design into Western culture food and design for weddings. The effect is quite stunning. I'd include food from both cultures, buffet style to ensure all the guests Indian and English are catered for. A sit down meal for an Indian English fusion wedding isn't as practical and will take a lot more planning! As long as your guests have allocated seating the meal will be just as stylish and classy as any other sit down meal.

For decorations, metallic gold and silver are very popular for 2017 and 2018 wedding and they perfectly add that touch of glamor required for an Indian fusion wedding.

The good news here is that modern Indian weddings generally have moved on from the Nadaswaram or the Dholak and are instead using professional DJ's to host their event. This is great because the music aspect of the fusion takes little work as its common practice now for both cultures to enjoy a class DJ. Remixed Indian English music is a great balance, or just choose music selections you both enjoy from either culture.

Indian Bridal Trends 2016, 2017-2018

By Amy Anderson Lee

Red and Gold Indian Wedding Theme 2017

2016 was a year of innovation and experimentation for Indian brides. The new-age bride is breaking the typical stereotypes and going for new things. As the wedding season approaches, we scour the runways to give you the best of bridal couture. Get inspired!

Traditional designs, contemporary cuts

New-age brides look for creations that speak of the country's heritage and crafts and at the same time let their personalities shine through. While they choose traditional designs and fabrics like heavy borders of gota patti work or intricate embroidery and chanderi or Benarasi fabric, when it comes to silhouettes, they opt for classy cuts. Unlike in the past, new-age brides are not all covered up. They love to show-off their toned bodies. More and more brides are opting for tailored silhouettes that flatter their bodies and lend an air of sophistication.

The blouse gets a makeover

From sheer to ornate embroidered blouses, the runways saw a lot of experimentation this year. The off-shoulder trend, which was still now a popular street-style, has made its way to the bridal world. The runways also saw an unusual combination – sharp shirts and flowy lehengas. New brides are also sporting Grecian-inspired one-shoulder blouses, and bold and structured long and short jackets, which they team up with saris or lehengas.

Moving away from the OTT bling

Bridal wear has moved away from the bling and bauble of the past and seeing a return to elegance. The new bride wants to relax and have fun, and that is spilling into fashion. They want to be comfortable and prefer light outfits. And to appeal to the modern Indian bride some of the leading designers are bringing “lightness” to their bridal line using cuts, couching and fine threadwork.

Benarasi weave makes a comeback

While sheer saris with lace detailing, lehengas with textured metallic blouses, royalty inspired jackets, anarkalis and gowns are all big this season, we also see some of the leading designers like Sabyasachi and Ritu Kumar creating wonders in Benarasi weave. And the trend has trickled down to their bridal collection. You will see new generation brides opting for colourful Benarasi saris and vintage zardozi lehengas.

Moving beyond red

Brides are moving beyond red and opening up to non-traditional colours. Many designers showcased their wedding collection this year in creams, Iranian turquoise and deep burgundy. Black is also a popular choice for the sangeet. Pink and orange are also a favourite. Some of the leading designers like Gaurav Gupta are even making bridal wear in fresh, English colours like powder blue and mint green. And Tarun Tahilaini showcased his bridal collection in beige, pink, salmon and ivory. The new generation of brides are lapping them up as they are quite progressive in their outlook and never shy away from experimenting.

It's all about the classics when it comes to jewellery

When it comes to jewellery bling is out and subtlety is in. It's all about timeless classic pieces. Brides are gravitating towards a fuss-free style. Traditional uncut sets, solitaire studs and emerald necklaces are the flavour of the season. The layering and stacking trend is still strong. Brides are opting for a choker, followed by a mid-length diamond necklace, and finally a waist length piece. To cater to the modern bride, some of the leading jewellers are making jewellery in unusual shapes like squares, triangles, and hexagons, too. Polki or a fusion of polki and diamonds is still a big trend, especially for cocktails. For the wedding an emerald ring, a pair of chandelier earrings and titanium bangles are must-haves.

Experimenting with hair accessories

Brides are moving beyond the usual and experimenting with hair accessories like paasas, matha pathis and tikkas.
