One of our favorite trends right now is tropical leaf inspiration. Are you as obsessed with banana leaves and palm fronds like us?! I love that this classic palm beach aesthetic is back in style– and incorporating tropical leaves into your destination wedding here in Barbados is easy! Here are some fun ideas outside of centerpieces and arrangements to bring in tropical leaves:
- An out of town bag with a banana leaf pattern, like the one pictured, is a trendy and fun way to present gifts to your guests who’ve travelled to your wedding.
- A palm or banana leaf pattern through out your wedding– from cocktail napkins to linens, you can incorporate this pattern thoughtfully in areas with big and small impact
- A tropical leaf patterned skirt for your maids paired with a crisp white dress shirt. I love this look, and I’ve been coveting this skirt from Party Skirts for like, a year!
- Line your cocktail hour trays with a banana leaf for an added design element
Those are just a few fun ideas to incorporate this tropical style into your destination wedding! x
