Pineapple Inspired Destination Wedding Details

Today we’re dreaming of the delicious fruit that is pineapple!  Not only does it make for a mean addition to a cocktail or dessert, it also goes great in tropical wedding decor!  If you want a bright and cheery, oh-so sweet wedding setup, then consider using one of our favorite fruits as inspiration!  Getting married in Hawaii?  What a perfect place to pop some color with this fabulous fruit from the islands.

Wedding Cookie Bars

We’ve had sweets on the brain a bit lately so rather than run to the store, I thought we’d share a sweet idea for your wedding dessert bar.  Cookies!  Grandma’s recipe, your favorite chocolate chip from childhood, or any cookies to your liking (decorated or not) make a great dessert buffet or favor idea at the end of the night.  If you’re getting married in a far off land, consider a local favorite like a wedding cookie, macaroon or other treat that might infuse the local culture into your event too!

Outdoor Summer Wedding Lawn Games

If you’re destination wedding is outdoors this summer, then consider entertaining your guests with more than just cocktails and tunes.  Design your day to incorporate a couple of lawn games too!  You can always invite guests to play twister, horse shoes, or croquet, but what about a few fun ideas they may not have seen at weddings?  We love carnival games, giant jenga, and vintage fun that takes you back to your childhood during your cocktail hour!  Consider these options to entertain outdoors this summer!
