Tropical Wedding Inspiration | Turn any setting into a tropical oasis with the right combination of florals, colors, and decorations | Vermont Bride Magazine

The budget conscious couple may not be able to have a tropical destination wedding, but you can easily transform any setting into a tropical oasis using the right flowers, colors, and decorations. The lush combination of pale yellows, vibrant red and orange, and creamy whites instantly adds a warm, summery vibe. The large green leaves are an easy and add another stylish layer to the exotic, wood chargers. Throw in some mercury glass candles and gold accents and you have an elegant, equatorial look that can be adapted to any setting. 

Kristin & Ian Real Wedding Inspiration | Rustic Wedding in the Woods | Vermont Bride Magazine

Kristin and Ian grew up not too far from each other - she in Massachusettes, and he in nearby Vermont - but it was at a bar in Boston that fate arranged for them to meet. After Kristin's friend literally pushed her to strike up a conversation with Ian (she really did nudge them together!), the rest was history. They both love to travel and the couple even lived in Nicaragua for a few months and have been back to visit several times since. But it was back in Vermont, while snowshowing on Ian's mother's property in Woodstock, that he proposed.

Kristin and Ian decided to hold their wedding at Ian's family's farm for the woodsy, rustic vibe they were looking for. Kristin even held a yoga class for friends and family in the upstairs of a barn on the morning of the wedding. The ceremony was held on a small hill overlooking the pond with a reception under a tent nearby. Wild flowers and mason jars adorned the tables and the couple gave out seeds as favors. Kristin's father is Armenian and her whole family joined him on the dance floor for a traditional Armenian dance called a "Baurd", and set the tone for the party for the rest of the night!

Meg & Ryan's Cape Cod Beach Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Meg and Ryan's seaside nuptials shined and sparkled like the glittering water off the coast of Cape Cod. Meg dreamed of a wedding fit for a mermaid, and she got it, with adirondack chairs, sea star cookies that doubled as favors and place cards, sea glass and seashell inspired decor, beach balls, and a gorgeous day at the beach! The blue and white color palette was the perfect compliment to the surrounding, sunshine filled setting. You can't get any more quintessential Cape Cod than sailboats drifting in the background, a towering display of shrimp, and classic wooden sunglasses. Their family even surprised them with their charming yellow lab joining in as the ring bearer!

Tia and Daniel's beautifully rustic and simple wedding took place down a bumpy, dirt road, far from any cell service but surrounded by the rural oasis of Vermont. Wild flower bouquets a billowy, bohemian gown, and a daisy chain crown set the tone for this down-to-earth celebration of love and togetherness. Throw in some wood-fired pizza, organic honey favors, and a lot of laughter, and you have the makings of a truly Vermont made wedding. Their laid back, campgroud gathering was complete with homemade pies, handmade signs, and a charming cabin.

Julia and Dave's modern, country style could not have more accurately reflected the beautiful nature of Vermont. With sweeping mountains for a backdrop, and drooping willow trees embracing their outdoor ceremony, Vermon't most glorious season of summer was very apparent. We especially love their watercolored scenic landscape invitation and the warm glow of rustic lanterns adorning every nook and cranny of their charming, old-world barn reception.

Today we are bringing you some charming wedding inspiration from the peach state of Georgia! Jess and Matt's late May nuptuals took place at Pineola Farms, a 12 acre pecan orchard - a fitting backdrop for their modern-country style. The fusion of styles came together beautifully, from cowgirl boots paired with a crystal belted flare gown, to gray chevron striped tablecloths paired with rustic, wild flowers atop chunky wood slices. The event was capped off with a vintage, green pickup truck for the perfect photo opps.

Jess and Matt's color palette consisted of shades of teal and white, with wood and chalkboard details. The bouquets were rustic bunches of local wild flowers bound with burlap, which were echoed in the centerpieces on the tables. Billowy white paper pom poms adorned the seats and arbor at the ceremony, which echoed Jess' wedding gown skirt. Overall, we think Jess and Matt did a fabulous job at combining sleek, modern elements with a rustic setting.

Natural elegance was the theme for this light and fresh wedding, captured by Civic Photos. Morgan and Kyle were married under a vine covered pergola at the Tuscan Courtyards, in Texas City, as ribbons and candles swayed around them in the breeze. Lots of personal history could be found in the details, like the program which featured fun facts about the couple and their relationship. Each bridesmaid wore a different style of dress, befit their personality, which went perfectly with the laid back, casual feel the couple wanted to portray. It was the perfect blend of traditional, sophisticated decor and comfortable, home-spun ambiance.
