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!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
