How to Add Festive Details to Your Destination Wedding

Just because you’re having a fall or winter beach wedding, doesn’t mean your subject to the traditional beach theme. Here are some ways to mix it up!

Adding festive details to your beach wedding


Rather than your standard tropical floral-scape, try incorporating wildflowers, or dried flowers and grasses into your bouquets and centerpieces if you’re getting married in the fall. Dried fruits and potpourri are also great for a totally rustic look. Winter brides –try poinsettias, roses, eucalyptus, or baby’s breath in your bouquets for a pop of red and green.


Copper adds a beautiful and festive fall touch to any table arrangement, while mercury accents are ideal for a winter wedding setup. In addition to the colors, textures are another fun element to play with to incorporate those festive touches –so tulle, beads, wood, and glitter can make a big difference!


If you’re having a fall wedding in paradise, perhaps you’ll like your girls in a maroon, gold, or burnt orange bridesmaid dress. For a winter wedding, an ice-blue or shimmery silver dress would add a festive touch to your theme. For the men, consider a fun-themed printed tie or pocket square to “tie” in the theme. 😉


For a fall affair, you might decide to raise your glasses to a crisp, sparkling glass of cider instead of champagne. Keep in mind, most resorts are willing to work with you to create the perfect signature cocktail –so don’t be afraid to ask them for ideas.


Naked cakes are ideal for your fall beach wedding. They look especially lovely topped with matching wildflowers, dried fruits, or wrapped in ribbon. Some other trends we’ve seen are smores over a firepit, or even a stacked apple cider donut cake!

We hope these festive touches make it into your beach wedding theme! To learn more about planning a destination wedding, click here for a custom quote!
