Centrepieces That Can Fit In Your Suitcase

I will never stop saying that I truly believe less is more when it comes to destination wedding decor. You are spending a lot of money to get married somewhere beautiful right? You really shouldn’t need to also worry about a ton of decor. And of course this is another instance where the smaller guest list saves you (you are decorating 5 tables instead of 30 right?) – at least that’s the idea.

Basically what I am trying to say is, I’m not even really sure you need to have centrepieces at your destination wedding. To be honest, I have seen some stunning centrepieces at weddings but I don’t really think they are necessary at any wedding (sorry wedding industry!)

Okay I know,  we love centrepieces. So for a destination wedding you have two options: go with something your venue provides or bring something that will fit in your suitcase. Some resorts will let you ship items for your wedding to the resort before you arrive but you still can’t get away with anything too bulky.

If you are going to use centrepieces provided by your venue know that there is probably an extra charge. Some resorts provide something small like candles and you can choose to add something. For the resort we are getting married at, centrepieces start at $60USD and go up from there. Just to give you an idea!

Here is some centrepiece ideas if you decide to bring your own decor (or at least, some of your own decor). For planning purposes, I should warn you that at the venue I choose, depending how elaborate the centrepieces I bring I may have to pay a set up fee.

That’s why I was so surprised when it became my absolute top pick for destination weddings. When you are getting married in some of the most beautiful places in the world abroad, I really think the rule of “less is more” applies. Chiavari chairs are stunning but lucite chairs take attention away from the chairs and put focus on the amazing location you chose.
