How to throw a Truly Tropical Wedding

Without the weather... we are in the less-than tropical Ireland after all.

Without the weather… we are in the less-than tropical Ireland after all.

We know it’s baltic, raining and miserable outside- but hear us out. The best way to combat the traditional Irish weather is to laugh in its face by throwing a totally tropical wedding. Palm trees, pineapples, flamingos- we think you should go the whole way and throw a bright big day reminiscent of the Caribbean shores.

How? It’s easy! Simply think of all the relaxing experiences that help you unwind during your summer holidays… then incorporate them into your wedding day celebration. Whether its juicy watermelon-flavoured cocktails or the local cuisine- use it as the theme for your wedding.

And if you’re worried Irish weather won’t play along, fear not… just have your big day indoors just in case!

Set the mood from the beginning with exciting stationary guaranteed to force your guests into a ‘holiday’ frame of mind. You can even sprinkle in a teaspoon of sand to set the scene or spritz a hint of ‘tropical scent’ Febreeze into each envelope to make the postman super jealous.
