MATCHING YOUR WEDDING DECOR WITH YOUR VENUE’S AESTHETIC
Our best friends, Amanda & Codeigh, went for boho vibes which matched perfectly with their beachy & tropical destination wedding resort - El Dorado Casitas Royale. We love how their wedding team matched Amanda’s inspirational photos perfectly!
Our destination wedding style was different from our friends, but we chose to match our wedding decor with our venue’s aesthetic, too! For our destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, our destination wedding theme was simple & elegant, with a twist of Cabo vibes. You can see wedding photos from our destination wedding in this blog post!

UNIQUE WEDDING DANCE FLOOR
While not all destination wedding venues need a dance floor, we definitely think it adds a nice touch to your wedding reception! Codeigh & Amanda went with a LED-lit-up dance floor which looked amazing! It also helped keep wedding guests on the dance floor throughout the night.

WEDDING RECEPTION ENTERTAINMENT
Our favorite thing from our best friends' wedding was their choice of entertainment mid-way through their wedding reception. All of the sudden, an amazing drummer walked in accompanied by a woman on stilts with tequila shots! This hour of entertainment totally changed the vibe of the wedding reception & everyone was ready to turn up! It was so lively & memorable!! Check out these videos to see some of the fun that was had!
The donkey carrying beers during cocktail hour was a nice touch, too!
DESTINATION WEDDING WEEK EXCURSION
When hosting a destination wedding, we think it is a great idea to plan some sort of destination wedding week excursion. We recommend making the activity optional for guests to attend, but from our experience, almost everyone decides to join the fun! When in Mexico, our favorite type of excursion is anything on the water. We chartered a catamaran for a sunset sail during our Cabo destination wedding, & our friends opted for a daytime snorkeling excursion. Whatever you decide, getting on a boat with your closest friends & family is always a great time! To get ready for your boat excursion, see some of our favorite swim for him & her linked here!

COLOR-COORDINATED WEDDING EVENT
Another wedding trend we’re loving is asking your wedding guests to wear the same color or a similar color scheme for amazing photos. For Amanda & Codeigh’s welcome party, they asked everyone to wear white, which looked so nice in the group photo! If you love this idea, too, check out this LTK post for all-white outfit inspiration for him & her!
CUSTOM WEDDING STATIONERY & WELCOME BAGS
While destination wedding welcome bags aren’t a new trend, they are definitely one of our favorites! Wedding guests always LOVE them & it is such a thoughtful thing to do to welcome your family & friends to your destination wedding. I got to design all the wedding stationery for our best friends which was such an honor! If you are interested in custom wedding stationery, please contact us here!
