Tropical Blue and Purple Themed Hawaii Wedding

Today, we are gushing over this vibrant tropical wedding that took place in Kauai! If you are yearning for a destination wedding, Michelle and Vineet planned the perfect wedding getaway. Filled with an array of blue and purple decorations, this special day is truly a show stopper.

If you enjoy island life, considering planning your nuptials in Hawaii. It’s warm, lush, and offers up breathtaking views from every angle. Their luxury resort venue was practically on the ocean, and provided an intimate escape from the rest of the world. It was the perfect place to exchange I DOs.

Green and Gold Forest Wedding Theme Ideas

A green wedding is worth its weight in gold. There’s a reason why nature surrounds us with this beautiful, rich and organic color. Gold details—planting pots for succulents and gold, leaf-shaped frosting—elevate a green theme to a whole new level. If you are yearning for a themed union this year, try holding a forest wedding. The backdrop creates an iconic venue.

Create a green and gold wedding theme for an elegant day full of foliage.

Keep invitations simple with colors and fonts that match your wedding theme. For a green and gold look, we like this simple design that complements the natural style.

Here are some ideas on how to decorate to create this look:

Add color to your venue and photography by placing robust plants around your ceremony and reception. Palm leaves are perfect table runners because they’re flat, and vases and candles easily sit on top.

Green Door
Freshly painted or “distressed” wooden doors give an organic look to a natural theme. Find doors and furniture to add to your venue scene or to use as props for your photography. Make the doors/furniture fit your green and gold scene by attaching gold handles.

Add dimension to your tables with modern glass candleholders in various sizes. It’ll give height to your centerpiece without blocking the view across the table. We love how light flickers in glass candleholders—beautifully set against foliage arrangements.

Let all the bridesmaids go green, or only have the maid of honor dress in a forest green gown. It’s nice to make the maid of honor feel special with a color or an accent piece, like green or a gold broach, to make her stand out from the rest.

Who wouldn’t want a pot of gold? We love these green succulents as party favors because they’re affordable and they add so much style to the tables. Guests will have little gold pots that look beautiful on the tables.

Frost the cake with bold frosting decorations. Think outside the box and make your cake a work of art. Have your cake decorator create palm leaves for a unique cake.

Green dresses, painted doors and succulent arrangements create a lush look. If you accent a green wedding with gold, you’ll have yourself a reception that’s naturally elegant.
