Inspired by Olive Oil for Your Destination I Do

Today we’re inspired by olive oil!  Yep, you read that right!  Whether you’re getting married in the hillsides of Tuscany or the rolling greens of California, infusing local finds (like olive oil) make great wedding day details.  Consider giving your guests something from the region as the wedding favor – like these bottles of olive oil.  Or dress up your table with a collection of bottles repurposed as vases for flowers.  Serve up an olive oil tasting bar during cocktail hour or give guests a station during the reception to enjoy.  We know how great olive oil is to cook with, no try decorating to reflect the region on which you wed too!

Paris Wedding Details

Eiffel Tower 600x452 Paris Wedding Details

Paris. How do I even begin to talk about the city of lights? Paris is known as one of the most romantic cities in the world! So of course it comes as no surprise that hundreds of couples jet off to Paris to get engaged, married or to celebrate anniversaries. If you can’t quite make it to Paris, there are plenty of ways for you to have a Parisian themed wedding wherever you may be! Of course no French wedding is complete without a decadence of deserts! From macaroons to truffles, a dessert table is a must! One of my favorite ideas is using a favorite French perfume like Chanel No 5 as a vase to hold flowers. Wherever your ideas may take you remember that French decor is elegant but simple! Have fun!

Refreshing Destination Wedding Cocktails

I don’t know about you, but sometimes my favorite part of the wedding is the cocktail hour/just getting a drink.. So many couples have great ideas when it comes to creating a specialty wedding cocktail, while others just stick to the basics. Today we’ve come up with some neat ideas to reflect your destination wedding into the drinks you serve!

If you’ve chosen a tropical land for your destination nuptials, then try out the different and exotic fruits that are found in the area. Also, when thinking of the type of alcohol to use (unless you decide on a dry reception, of course) rum is usually a great type to pair with say pineapple, coconut, and mango juices. Married in Mexico? I’m sure you know the answer to this one: Tequila! Margaritas, lime juice concoctions, or just straight shots of this liquor would be an appropriate nod to the Latin country. Ceremonies and receptions in Europe call for wine, champagne, and sangria! Or if you are in the UK, Irish whiskey is a great liquor of choice to be paired with cream: Irish coffee anyone? Finding local bottles of these while anywhere in Europe would really make your wedding seem culturally authentic and you and your guests will be as happy as Bacchus (the Roman God of wine!)

If you’re staying in the states, but taking your crew down South then whiskey would be your best choice! I won’t leave out vodka here, because you can also use that with more common fruits/juices to the South like oranges, peaches, and strawberries. To reflect your location even more, use mason jars as cups and you’ll have chic little Southern drinks. You see, there are many great ways to tribute your wedding destination into your ceremony or reception, and presenting that through drinks can make for a truly fun (and maybe crazy?!) night!
