You know you’re going to have a wedding that evokes the tropics. Maybe it will take place in the Caribbean or Hawaii. Maybe it will take place in your own backyard (complete with a pig roast), or a local banquet hall (outfitted with real palm trees draped with magical twinkle lights). You’ve selected a signature island drink for the occasion — maybe “Bahama Bliss” or “So-in-Love Sunset.” Tiki torches provide some welcome color and warmth outside the venue. Beautiful orchids will float in a line of frosted martini glasses along the head table. The bride and groom’s chairs will sport colorful leis.
Your guests will get adorable place cards with their names in Hawaiian, sparking plenty of conversation as the night (or day) progresses. You’ll treat them to succulent Polynesian pork, Hawaiian-style spare ribs, and coconut créme brÃ»lée. Perhaps you even hired a steel drum band and some hula dancers for the occasion.
