If you’re in the grip of the winter blues, we’ve got just the remedy: this vision of beachy paradise. Okay, it might not cure your seasonal ails, but it will inspire you if you’re planning—or just dreaming of—a destination wedding in the tropics. Whatever island destination floats your boat, be it in Bali or the Bahamas, you can’t go astray with a soft coral palette punched up with pops of bright citrus shades. Remember: Don’t let angular and dated tropical floral arrangements sink your wedding! Go for a modern yet timeless look, such as that embodied by the featured centerpiece, which was created by Ariella Chezar, a master of tropical floral design. Accented with bunches of ripening plantains and set in a weathered stone urn, the lush and delicately colorful blooms lend a feeling of old-world isle opulence. One thing’s for sure: No matter where in the world you are, you’ll want to be sipping this refreshing guava-orange margarita!
