Shipwrecked-Themed Destination Wedding Ideas from Beau-coup

We love this unique take on a destination wedding theme from our wedding favors partner, Beau-coup! It’s the perfect inspiration as you plan a romantic escape for your big day. For more fresh inspiration and wedding ideas, check out the Beau-coup blog.

Winter often makes me long for tropical island getaways, and this week’s theme is the perfect cure for the snow. For this wedding theme, take your inspiration from the days of swashbuckling pirates, mercenaries and worldwide trading expeditions (especially those that ended on exotic islands filled with plenty of promise for a new world and might have held stashed loot).

Set the scene on an isolated beach in a tropical locale, like Hawaii or somewhere in the Caribbean.

Decorate your venue with plenty of netting, local greenery and flowers. Get utilitarian by using coconuts, empty bottles and seashells to house some of your wedding centerpieces.

Use old navigation charts to add a dash of adventure to your decor, get creative by using palm fronds to house your bouquet and make your entrance or getaway on a row boat. You could even use a vintage trunk to house your wedding favors, and use pieces of driftwood as place cards.

Take your cue from Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Caribbean and wear your hair in flowing tousled waves paired with a long flowy gown with plenty of ruffled details at the bottom and lacy overlays, or keep it simple and make your statement in your jewelry. Be sure to provide some cute parasols for your bridesmaids and get ready to impress.

For your food, be sure to use some of the local fare and to incorporate plenty of seafood and tropical fruit in your sauces and dips. You can also use the fruit as garnish for your drinks.
