Destination Wedding Flowers: Tips and Trends


For any destination wedding, the bouquet and table decorations play a big part in complementing a magical setting. Often, you must consider what flowers are available in your destination wedding location, which flowers are in season, and even whether certain flowers can hold up to the heat or cold depending where you are.

Here are some great tips as you start to brainstorm what type of flowers you'd like for your destination wedding.

A little goes a long way!

To save money and not waste flowers, consider a unique way of showcasing the flowers like these hanging balls to put them center stage without going overboard.

Lay low for a more casual feel

Keep it low for a more casual or destination wedding feel. You want your guests to be able to see eachother. No need to formal or oversized arrangements because the scenery is part of your decor.

Monochromatic with a POP!

Monochromatic floral arrangements with a pop of color keep it simple and don't overwhelm the beautiful view. Stick with one color palette for table linens and the base flowers.

Or, go for a light and calming palette - perfect for a destination wedding. Flowers are soft and monochromatic with a touch of green. Use ribbon or jewels on the stems to really make it stand out without using color.

Think outside of the garden!

Think out of the box! With warm weather Destination weddings, some flowers may wilt. Try this Feather Bouquet by AmoreBride, $89.00 and add a few flowers.
