Summer Wedding Ideas


For these summer wedding ideas I decided to go with a tropical wedding theme. That said, it's a different look and feel than a traditional beach, ocean or Hawaiian theme. This one lends heavily to a British Colonial style, complete with wooden animal figurines, cuban cigars, and exotic patterns.

I think this wedding dress embodies these summer wedding ideas, from Claire Pettibone.

Tropical Wedding Theme Gallery

For centerpieces I recommend going with a large tropical plant, like a bromeliad or anthuriums. Choose a patterned table runner, and if possible, do not use table cloths if you have a wooden table. Choose a rectangle table over square, too. Also, find wooden animal carvings and place them around the plant, as well as wooden candle holders like in the gallery.

Try to find a venue that already has lush palm trees and a tropical view--that way, the venue is already decorated with a breathtaking view. Such venues include the zoo or many hotels/meeting areas in exotic locations like Polynesia, South Africa or the Bahamas. If you can't make it to any of these areas, then some states in the US with this type of decor would be in the Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Texas) or South, like Georgia, Louisianna, Mississippi, etc.

Groomsmen can easily wear a white shirt, khakis, and maybe a safari hat (which can actually look very stylish). Couple that with a cigar bar, and the men should be willing to go with this theme.

For retail stores that carry the clothes and decor, try Tommy Bahama, Cost Plus World Market, and the Bombay Company.

If you're looking for wedding favors that fit this theme, your best bet is anything with bamboo, wood, raffia, and so on. I've included some options below: clicking on a photo will open a new window take you to the site offering the favor.
