Boutonniere tip – if you’re having a delicate flower that doesn’t stand up to heat/lack of water well (like hydrangeas) in the boutonniere, have the florist make an extra so you don’t have a droopy flower for the post ceremony photos.
Parasols not only add a jolt of color to your ceremony but they’ll help keep your guests comfortable from the tropical sun. Weddings Costa Rica has them available for rent, making them an affordable decor addition.
The terrace at Zephyr Palace is long but narrow so we often try to minimize the size of aisle markers to not take up space. Having flowers on the chairs is a great solution to dress up your aisle style.
Celestial blue overlays pair beautifully with silver chairs. We alternated tall centerpieces with low to try to minimize the height of the room’s ceilings (it’s a very big space) whilst adding visual interest. Decor tip – not only does alternating the florals make the decor look more exciting but it helps with the bottom-line as low centerpieces are usually less expensive than their tall counterparts.
For the seating card table, we featured small bouquets of blue hydrangeas in silver julep cups for an elegant look. Guests wrote their wishes for the couple on Costa Rica postcards which were later mailed to Aimee and Eric’s home, filling their mailbox with happy memories after they arrived home.
Aimee and Eric, thank you so much again for allowing Weddings Costa Rica the honour of working with you on your wedding celebrations. Many years of happiness to you both!
And a huge thanks to El Velo Photography for capturing the day!
