People Also Ask

What do I wear to a tropical wedding?

Tropical weddings can be formal or more relaxed. For example, a beach elopement will have a different vibe from a tropical-themed ballroom (flowy sundresses and collared shirts vs. tailored gowns and fitted tuxes). Look to the invitation and celebratory setting for guidance.

How do I have a tropical-themed wedding off the beach?

No tropical destination? No problem. You can still have a stunning tropical wedding without a palm tree in sight. Look beyond just wedding ideas to find creative tropical-themed décor and inspiration from birthdays, corporate events, and more. These tropical-theme party ideas bring paradise to you, even in the city. Make sure to work with a wedding planner and design team to create an authentic tropical aesthetic.

Where can I find a venue for my tropical wedding?
