For those of us from cooler climates (I’m from Maryland), we can have a hard time imagining the holidays without snow, scarves, hot chocolate, ever greens, and holly. However, a beachy, tropical wedding, can feel just as cozy and inviting. This is the inspiration board I’ve come up with for a holiday wedding in Costa Rica. I imagine lots of greens, in the form of succulents, tropical foliage and airplants, accented with dark red flowers and whites from corals, flowers and candles. And we mustn’t forget the sparkly dress and romantic lighting.
Thinking about the cooler weather, changing leaves, and, my favorite, pumpkin lattes, in the States right now. And I’m feeling a inspired by this picture that captures all the things I love about fall in the States and my home here in Costa Rica. It has some warm fall colors, but still that relaxed, tropical, beachy feel. What do you think?

As you explore ideas for your ceremony decorations, you’re probably thinking flowers. You are probably also thinking about what you want the feel to be, perhaps its lux, or simple, or natural, maybe burlap, maybe fun, boho, tropical, or colorful. Whatever your thoughts may be, have you considered not using flowers at all? You can get that lux, or simple, or natural, or tropical feel without real flowers. Here are some ideas we’ve put together and we love them all!
Row by row, starting from upper left:
- Rustic wood arch with sheer ombre material.
- Chandelier from a simple wooden canopy.
- Yards and yards of burlap with white satin ribbon, puddling on the sand.
- So much lovely, colorful ribbon, hanging from a rustic wooden frame.
- Lots of driftwood posts with a simple white canopy.
- Wooden frame, with the ocean, sand and couple as the focus.
- Paper flower chains from a rustic wooden frame.

I imagine we all know Etsy.com. If not, let me describe it for you. Etsy is more or less an online “craft fair”, where you can purchase handmade and vintage items, craft supplies, and food, among other things. These items are sold directly from the creator or a small community, verses a large store, this is what helps keep costs reasonable and items eclectic. We like it for the little things: earrings, necklaces, fun pillows, holiday decor, scarves, hats and so much more. I’m sure you know, its the perfect place to get your wedding day jewelry or gifts, but had you ever considered shopping on Etsy for your wedding dress? The dresses below are a sampling of dresses I found and loved for a Costa Rica wedding.

We recently did a wedding at Rancho Margot, where we were able to cut all the flowers right off the farm and put together the arrangements; bouquets, table decor, everything. What a treat?! Here is a little sample of the bouquet, before the REAL pictures get in! Can’t wait!

Absolutely adore this wedding tablescape!!!
Made up of wonderfully fantastic colors; greys, corals, seaglass tones, and pops of yellow/orange. It makes me feel as though I’m on a beach in Bali. Great combination of beaded votives, driftwood, and little fun pieces. What an electic, beautiful table!!!!!
