This look is all about rich, vibrant colours offset with natural textures. Tropical tones like magenta, fuschia and coral (the brighter, the better!) pair perfectly with earthy timbers and lush greenery to create a modern, island-inspired setting. We also recommend using fresh whites throughout your design to break up the bolder colours, along with gold details to elevate your styling!



Don’t be afraid to mix and match your furniture and decor pieces to create a fun and relaxed tropical look! We love pairing timber elements with rich velvets and metallics for a modern yet elegant tropical setting.

If you’re planning a sit-down reception, we recommend natural timber tables paired with wooden bench seats, white bentwoods or even gold soho chairs for a more elegant look. Keep your table styling fresh with rattan charger plates, gold cutlery and linen napkins.

For a cocktail wedding, we love our white hairpin dry bars paired with our white bentwood stools or gold soho wire stools for a classic, timeless look. Our Tiki bar, Bahamas seagrass umbrellas, natural Peacock chairs and clam shells also work beautifully to achieve a truly island-inspired setting!

We LOVE tropical blooms! To bring this look to life, go bold and vibrant with your floral styling – bright bougainvillea, peonies and ranunculus can all work beautifully together for a tropical look. Make sure to include plenty of tropical palms and greenery to bulk up your arrangements, too.

Consider incorporating a statement backdrop for your ceremony, bar or bridal table. Our white soho backdrop looks incredible when dressed with bright, tropical floral arrangements!

Keep the tropical influences consistent when it comes to the finer details of your wedding styling. Rattan pendant lights, tropical-inspired cocktails and colourful stationery details will all help to create a fun, modern and vibrant setting. Think about incorporating tropical prints throughout your paper goods, including fresh tropical fruits on your table settings, or decorating your cake with bright bougainvillea and palm fronds!
