Put the Lime in the Coconuts, and Remember your Kauai Wedding Forever

Tropical weddings are growing in popularity because of how beautiful the islands are. Tropical wedding favors have increased right alongside of it.

If you are getting married on a tropical island such as Kauai, you should display your personality along with that of the tropical atmosphere.

Umbrellas: Shade the Sun & Protect From a Tropical Shower

When you are planning a wedding it is easy to overlook the details of the ceremony and focus more on the reception. Especially when you are in a tropical setting.

Remember that all of your guests will be out in the sun through out the ceremony, so why not provide some tropical style fans, or you can hand out sun umbrellas, which will not only keep them cooler but create a picturesque moment.

This can also help if you get caught in a freak rain storm. If you are having your ceremony at night, however, it is a different story. You may want to forget about the umbrellas and instead line the isle with paper lanterns to create a nice soft light as you walk down the isle.

Regardless of the time of day you will need a theme to your wedding. This can be a traditional theme with lots of white, and flowers, or you can go with another theme like a tropical one. Replace the paper lanterns with coconut candles, give coconut bath powder to your guests as a thank you gift, and serve fresh coconut juice from the coconut. The options are limited only by your imagination, as there are sites that will create custom tropical wedding favors.

All of these things combined will create an atmosphere to remember by both you and your guests. After all, you want the moment you say “I do” to be etched in your mind forever.
