7 Ways To Decorate Your Destination Wedding With Pineapples and Palms

Nothing says “magical” like a destination wedding. The tropical atmosphere, breezy weather, and fragrant scent of sea air work in tandem to create a wonderfully memorable occasion.

For a tropical destination wedding, pineapples and palms lend themselves perfectly to the theme. Try a few of these ideas to creatively add a little tropical flair to your big day!

1. Aisle Decor

Skip the classic sashes and bunches of colorful flowers and make your tropical wedding a little unique. Instead, use palm fronds to adorn the aisle. They’re easy to tie to chairs with a bit of twine.

2. Pretty Banners

Though you’ll probably recite your vows on the beach, odds are you’re taking things inside as the reception starts hoppin’. A pineapple and palms banner would be great to announce the dessert table or welcome guests at the door.
