Today, we’re putting together a few inspired ideas for your upcoming destination wedding.

In order to have the wedding of your dreams, you have to have a clear vision, but not necessarily deep pockets. Roses can many times be a lower cost flower compared to Calla Lillis or orchids.

A loose-fitting up-do is a popular choice for many brides. Add a fresh orchid and voilà! Your look comes together and complements the look of your casual and elegant beach nuptials. Keep in mind that you may want a few extra flowers on hand in case they begin to wilt in the hot temperatures. (Image by L’amour Photography)

For the junior bridesmaids, giving them something that’s a little easier to hold on to is a good option. This design is small yet, has the desired impact. Florals by Anny Heid (Image by L’amour Photography)

If you’re having a nautical themed wedding, but aren’t into the “cliche” nautical look, below is a good compromise. The design is by Dabney Lee.

If you’re looking for a modern take on a black & white invite – add a pop of fuchsia! Below is a great Save the Date option from Dabney Lee.

As Save the Date magnets go, this one is fun for those of you who love a cute cartoon. Plus they are very affordable! By PosePrints
