Yellow is hot this wedding season for the obvious reason... it is a happy happy color! And what a great choice for a destination wedding where the sun is as bright a yellow as you can possibly imagine.
A Puerto Rico Destination Wedding is the perfect solution for many brides wanting an affordable wedding and picture perfect backdrop, it is not always the best solution for a bride wanting to gift her guests with heavy or bulky favors since everything must be carted down on the plane.
The trend of plantable favors started a few years ago but most were seedlings of trees not allowed to cross foreign borders or crafted in the shape of wildflowers or butterflies, lacking a beach wedding connection. A wonderful little company, Swallow Tail Farms has filled the gap and created plantable favors with a beach theme available in sets of 25 for $19.95. These favors rock because they weigh almost nothing and will fit in any suitcase, no matter how small.
I love these large seashells, professionally cleaned and crafted into oil lamps. They would be the perfect addition to any destination wedding deco. They are a great alternative to traditional candles and from a practical perspective, they might do a better job of staying lit in the ocean breeze. Also nice is they can be a lasting investment, not one-time expense as is the case with most wedding decor.
Take a look at these and many other unique decorative shell ideas at Conch King.
Posh Girl Vintage has to be one of the most inspiring sites for a bride. These silhouettes are incredibly feminine and glorify the female form to its best. Any of these dresses would be ideal for an intimate destination wedding. Did you know there were about as many informal as formal weddings back in the days of Ike, early rock and Marilyn?

Wedding dress shopping has gotten (in my humble opinion) increasingly out of hand in recent years with dresses costing upwards of $5K ......everything below is kind of not so cute and a little on the cheesy side (generally speaking).....but look at these fantastic options from Nordstrom, all available for $500 or less and with these economic hard time this find is invaluable! And at these prices you can have a few costume changes ; )
Considering the impulsiveness of their decision, it was to be a beautiful wedding. A German "couple" packed bathing suits and sunglasses, then headed to Africa to get married "where it is warm." The nuptials were interrupted when the lovebirds were stopped at the train station and promptly returned to their parents.
Why? Because they were eloping at least 15 years too soon.
Mika and Anna-Lena, ages 5 and 6, are "very much in love," and decided during a joint family holiday celebration that they wanted to seal the deal. So they grabbed Anna-Lena's seven-year-old sister (an official witness), packed their bags, then jumped on a tram.
Had it not been for those pesky necessities like money and tickets, they may have gotten even farther. But the police at the train station got suspicious and brought them in.
Can you even imagine? Once the shock wears off, their parents are going to be re-telling that story for years to come. When my godson was born just a month before my daughter, my friend and I joked that we should just start planning the wedding now. But even if these families saw puppy love developing between these intrepid tots, I'm sure they figured they had at least a few years before the kids made it official!
