Non Sand or Beach Ceremony Decoration Ideas

Recommended Posts

I am a very simple girl and I think the view is amazing and all I would do is maybe put two standing arrangements on either side of where you get married (alter)  See if they have a more elegant table without the cloth over it.  But again, I love love the view!!!

Thanks Jamie5280!  I'm actually leaning towards your idea, I'm just stuck on these hydrangeas.  My FMIL says they aren't too good for the sun and heat.  She's probably totally right, but our ceremony is at 5:00pm and the sunset that day says 7:15pm.  So we'll have sun, but it shouldn't be too strong (at least that's what I hope, lol).

Have you ever been to your location that time of year? I have not, but I travel during the summer, and it is always still hot at about 5. That being said, May is earlier, and I know temperatures can vary a LOT. Just do some research; you may be able to find out that it will be totally fine! Or, maybe you will be able to find something else that you will like as much. Just do with your gut!

I've only been to Mexico in August and it was SUPER hot!  Like couldn't walk on the sand without shoes hot!  May is pretty warm too, but I'm hoping not as steamy as July/August.

 

My wedding coordinator is actually heading to Mexico in the next week and will be visiting our hotel so I've asked her to check with the hotel coordinator to see what she thinks.  I'm not 100% set on these hydrangeas so if it doesn't work out then I'll need to figure out something else.  Right now I'm googling away ;-)

I have been to Mexico the end of May and it was hot and humid.  But I am not sure how it is at the beginning of May???

 

I honestly think that whatever flowers you choose will be gorgeous!  Not to mention, most people probably won't be able to decipher between flowers anyways.  Can't wait to hear what you end up doing!!!

I'm from Vancouver where right now it's raining (surprise surprise) so I'll take hot and humid over rain any day!  Haha.  I'll definitely keep you posted on what I end up choosing.  Right now everything else I come up with my mom hates.  The latest and greatest is that she hates orchids.  Lol who hates orchids?!  I'm just trying to be accommodating because she's contributing a lot financially speaking...however I'm sure it will get to the point of where I ring up the coordinator and say "let's just go with plan A" cheesy.gif  Oh the joys of wedding planning cheers.gif

I think that the backdrop of your wedding is so beautiful you honestly won't need too much decor. I do like your flower choice though and hope that the heat won't effect that too much. I think in early May though you should be fine! Happy Planning!!

This is ABSOLUTELY Gorgeous!! Yes, you should definitely do the tall vases. If you decide to do runners, you should create your own with both of your initials then add rose pedals to it. I've seen some really nice DIY runners. I'll post it when I find the website if your interested!!

My florist told me that too that the hydrangeas are not good in the heat! Have you thought about bringing down silk hydrangeas... they look like the real thing! Might have to assemble them once your there but definitely do able if this is what you want!! I think we might go this route... just not sure if our resort will have a vase that tall :(. Does yours??

Sorry for all the post :)... just wanted to comment on another thing. I was in Cancun late april to may last year and it was hot!! I think we only had 1 cloudy afternoon for a couple hours, then it was back to hot and humid again. Hope that helps!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
