Is it ok to have "beach" decorations at a rainforest wedding?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married in Costa Rica, in the rainforest, sort of up on a small mountain overlooking the forest and the ocean. Even though we'll be going to the beach throughout the week, the hotel isn't ON the beach (it's not even walking distance b/c it's too high up, but the view of the ocean is great!).

 

I'm not sure yet if my ceremony will be on the beach or at the hotel, but if I do have it at the hotel is it ok to use beach-themed favors and decorations? I was thinking of tying starfish to my OOT bags and putting a starfish design on partyflops flip-flops, but is that lame? I haven't found many rain-forest-y decorations or designs that I like, but I don't want to seem fake either!

 

Anyways, let me know your thoughts :)

I think the starfish are fine for costa rica. I think if you have it at the hotel I would keep beachy things to a minimum, although starfish would be fine as long as they weren't in every corner all over. I think w/ costa rica and rainforest I would decorate w/ lanterns and lots of bright flowers!

Part of the appeal of starfish for me is that I can use real ones (and I also like them graphically). The extent of it would pretty much be tying one with a ribbon to the OOT bags, having a starfish design on flip flops, and possibly incorporating starfish into some other designs (thank you notes, tags, etc). I wouldn't actually have starfish centerpieces or anything (my main decorations will just be lots of flowers).

 

Anyways, I'm open to alternative tropical suggestions, but I don't want to use fake flowers or anything :)

our big wedding at home was on a lake, and obviously there are no starfish there! but we used the subtle beach theme throughout the whole decorating process. starfish, sand dollars, palm trees, shells etc. i would say DO IT! :) its your wedding, who cares what anyone else thinks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
