Thinking about getting married on the beach? We say go for it – beach weddings are relaxing and fun for everyone. If you are a couple who loves the outdoors and doesn’t care about tradition, then a tropical setting may be perfect for you. Whether you choose to hold your wedding on the beach or simply decorate to reflect an island feel, choosing the perfect beach wedding favors is key.
So you want a beach theme, but also want to keep this reception somewhat formal. After all, it is a wedding. Your perfect solution? Palm tree place card holders, of course! Create your own fun place cards and display them in their very own palm tree card holders. Affordable and adorable, these favors bring the beach straight to your party and give your guests a memorable keepsake.
The great thing about island wedding favors is that they can really spice up your reception tables. It is easy to make your theme pop with something as simple as fruit. Fruit is wonderful for summertime because of its natural sweetness and colorful appeal. Warm, tropical regions are commonly associated with pineapples, oranges, lemons, kiwis, and mangoes. Placing three or four pineapples as centerpieces on your wedding tables can help your wedding party to be a lively production.
Though using fruit as a centerpiece is one option, you can also give your guests a small array sliced pineapple, orange, or other fruit. These slices can be thoughtfully arranged on a small dish to have as a dessert or they can add a tropical flair to a pitcher of margarita mix. Or if beer is your preference of wedding beverage, consider serving ice cold Coronas at your island wedding, complete with a slice of lemon wedged in the opening.
When planning a beach wedding party, you can’t go wrong with coconuts as wedding favors. Serve them whole or use them as authentic beach-style cups. Either way the strange hairiness of this tropical delicacy is bound to delight your guests. There are also many manufactured coconut wedding favors available if acquiring fresh coconuts is beyond your means.
