Outdoor Wedding Ideas from Engage!15

wedding picnics

Happy Friday friends!  We thought we’d end this week with a casual picnic to kick off the weekend and get you in the mood to relax a bit.  This inspiration comes from a lovely lunchtime event at Engage!15.  With a yellow party palette that popped outdoors on the lawn, guests were invited to fill their own lunch boxes – such a great idea for a post wedding luncheon or welcome party on the beach!  This event took place at Four Seasons Orlando but you could host your own casual lunch to welcome your destination wedding guests anywhere in the world!  Complete with chalkboard signs and a dessert bar to fill a doggie bag full of treats, this party would make a great kickoff party for any I do’s!

Tropical Wedding Cocktail Ideas by The Grand Bevy

We’ve got more great destination wedding ideas for you from the Engage!15 luxury wedding industry summit we just returned from.  This is a place where we party (yes, it’s work), connect, and learn so that our industry can be better at what we do for you – brides and grooms!  One fun element of this week at Four Seasons Orlando was a cocktail making class where we discovered some beauties perfect for a tropical wedding or destination wedding with a pop of color in its palette.  Created by The Grand Bevy, these drinks were delicious!  Don’t forget about flowers when you dress up your bars and beverages!

Mojito Signature Cocktails for National Mojito Day!

Choose from a variety of delicious mojito cocktails for your wedding in honor of national mojito day! Craving some watermelon in the blazing summer heat? Have a refreshing watermelon mojito to cool you and your guests down. If you’re having a summer wedding on the countryside, sip on a rustic rhubarb mojito that is beautiful and tasty! Want to keep the mojitos coming all night long? Then you need a mojito bar that will make your cocktail dreams come true! If you’re wanting to have some mojito drink options set up a table that displays the types of mojitos available with all the necessary components for people to get their drink on. Switch up with an uncommon but charming self serve mojito bar that is labeled and decorated to perfection! Bring some thai inspiration into your wedding with a blue thai mojito that is absolutely scrumptious. Drink up and have fun with these minty sensations!

Drinkable Wedding Favors

A good rule of thumb is that you can’t go wrong with an edible or drink wedding favor – especially at a destination wedding when guests don’t want to travel home with an extra trinket!  So if you want to keep the party going at the end of the night, consider these fun, festive, and even location-specific drinkable wedding favors!

Wedding Cakes Around the World

We do things a little different here in the states, not every country serves up a swanky three tiered wedding cake.  Some (like Italians) make the cake in front of the guests during the reception, while others (like the French) serve up pastries stacked to make a cake.  Here are a few wedding cakes from around the world to inspire your sweet side on the big day!
