Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Got a case of the January blahs? What could be a better cure than planning a blissfully warm, tropical vacation wedding? With destination weddings becoming more and more common, there are plenty of ideas and resources available to help you make all the sumptuous, exotic arrangements.
While many automatically think of Hawaii or the Caribbean as nuptial hotspots, we suggest you consider traveling somewhere truly extraordinary- like Bali. Balinese culture envelops you in its fiery beauty- what better place to start your honeymoon? Your guests would never forget this once in a lifetime experience of exploring this truly unique Indonesian island and many resorts specialize in making your wedding day breathtakingly perfect:
This exotically curved diamond wedding ring will also take your breath away.
Wedding dresses that must pack into a suitcase are no problem at all, as there are plenty of styles and fabrics that can stow away safely. We advise not fussing with stiff, formal gowns- a beach wedding amongst the palms is time to experiment with lighter, filmier materials that will float on the breeze- imagine saying “I do” wrapped in romantic, flowing white. Or, get inspired by your surroundings- the deep turquoise of the sea, the vivid reds and yellows of local flora and fauna- and break with traditional white all together. After all, traveling to the tropics to wed means passion, and passion means COLOR. An adventurous, passionate bride would look stunning on a sandy shore in this sea-foam and tangerine gown.
You could show the true, passionate colors of your love with this gorgeous diamond and sapphire engagement ring.
But what if a destination wedding is simply out of reach? Bring the fun and color of the tropics to your wedding and make your special day feel like a journey to a far off paradise by choosing tropical flowers for your bouquets and decor. This bridal bouquet of vibrant, contrasting blooms seems to burst with joy, like your love- something truly out of the ordinary.
A divinely detailed diamond and sapphire wedding ring like this one will set your love apart as something truly special, too.
