For destination weddings, some local wedding coordinators choose to decorate the event highlighting the local colors of the place. Yes, there is a thing as such. The tropical beaches of Hawaii and Bali can be associated with red, orange, greens, and other earthy tones, and they could look pretty well in a night-time celebration.

The natural shades of the season can be the theme and the color of your destination wedding. Summer, spring, autumn, and winter have their very own colors, and you can use their unique palettes to depict their mood of your celebration. However, it does not necessarily mean that you’ll go for the usual orange and brown fall if you want to highlight autumn. Rust, gold, amber, are colors to consider. Variations of shades are great way to play it off.
For beach destination weddings, spring or summer colors are your best bet.
5. Remember the bridesmaids.
