Planning a destination wedding is about as exciting as it gets. Jet-setting off to a stunning locale with unbelievable scenery and magnificent weather to tie the knot is so romantic, and a perfect way to head straight from the altar to your honeymoon.

There are a so many things to love about having your wedding in paradise. We love how this event in Maui incorporated colors of the tropics with elegant patterns, gorgeous bouquets, and an island-inspired menu.

Outdoor Bliss

Beautiful sunlight and tropical temperatures made way for a spectacular outdoor dining and a celebration to remember for this couple.

Outdoor round dining tables featured a crisp and classic looking with White Bengaline table linen and Mandarin Miramar napkins, which were coordinated with the dishes and framed table numbers. The mahogany chairs provided a great contrast, and the nature-inspired design was a perfect complement to the natural look of the island.

Indoors, the place cards and the ethereal white wedding cake (beautifully adorned with magnificent flowers) were displayed on tables draped in matching Mandarin Miramar table linen, bringing a burst of color and design to the reception, which continued to reveal more of the Hawaiian setting.

Guests had plenty of space to mingle and meet with friends and family of the happy couple. With the amazing wall of glass doors and windows, the guests were ushered into the reception foyer with a sea of natural light, welcoming them into the festivities.

Table Linen Variation for An Eye-Catching Look

Add surprises to your event, by mixing up the way your guests will enjoy the various areas of your event space. You can keep the look consistent with the same linen choices, but look at the different rooms and decide on décor that will uniquely accentuate each area. As you see here, the couple chose to use long rectangular farm tables, which featured Mandarin Miramar Table Runners. By using the same textile, you will keep the event uniform in color and pattern, while you add a little of your own design flair.

With white dinner plates and clear B&Bs and glassware, the look is still classic, but with a clean aesthetic. Also, by adding charming coordinating pale green and white bouquets, the tables perfectly accentuated the greenery throughout the venue.

Palm trees, crystal blue ocean waves, the smell of tropical flowers, closest family and friends all sharing your special day on a beautiful beach with the perfect design–all anyone could want for that unique destination wedding.
