Elements of Style: Island Escape

Escape the winter cold by hosting a destination wedding at your favorite island getaway, where the sand is sugar-fine, the cocktails are ice-cold, and summer temperatures always await.

1. SEND // this invite
Set the mood for a seaside soirée with this “Painted Sea” invitation by Laura Condouris for Minted.

2. SERVE // these drinks
During cocktail hour, have bartenders crack open fresh coconuts and serve them to guests.

3. WEAR // this wedding dress (sans shoes, of course!)
This silk-chiffon gown from J.Crew is flowy and lightweight—perfect for the beach.

4. CUT // this cake
This ocean-inspired confection by Fondant Flinger features fondant ruffles resembling waves and a sugar-sand top tier.

5. TUCK // these into welcome bags
Miniature coconut-milk-and-mango candles will make guests’ hotel rooms feel much more cozy.

6. DECORATE // with these centerpieces
Ask your florist for a mix of dahlias, orchids, and ferns in bright, tropical hues.

7. GIVE // this to your bridesmaids
They’ll adore this island-inspired perfume with notes of ginger, tuberose, and frangipani.

8. EXCHANGE VOWS // right here
Say “I do” beneath a bamboo ceremony structure decorated with chiffon and mokara orchids.
