Hawaiian Wedding Tips

Incorporate the Hawaiian theme into your bridal bouquet with the addition of seashells.

Choose seashells that are similar in color and size. For each shell, with a hot glue gun add a length of florists 22 gauge wire. Cluster 3 shells together and wrap with florist wire. Add the cluster to a selection of flowers or ask your florists to do it for you.

How to make a lei:

The symbolism of a lei makes a beautiful accessory for the wedding party and a delightful way to get your guests ready for a beach wedding.

For each 30 inch lei you will need -

  • chrysanthemums or dendrobium orchids
  • colored beads - plastic are lighter and more comfortable to wear.
  • 40 inches of nylon thread - or fishing line
  • large needle

Thread wire through flowers and beads alternately. Knot between each flower and bead to avoid slipping.

Use these ideas for your Hawaiian table centerpieces....

  • Urns filled with seashells sand, sea glass or small stones
  • Shallow bowls filled with tinted water and a floating candle, for extra drama sprinkle sea glass or shells on the table.
  • Create a beach scene, Fill trays with sand or gravel then top with rocks or seashells or bits of driftwood.
  • One large candle per table decorated with a collar of seashells - Place the candle on a pedestal and hot glue shells around the base of the candle, piling the shells as you go.
  • Miniature beachscapes created from mix and matched glasses act as votives - fill with seashells, sand and a single candle.
  • Low bowls filled with water and a single exotic flower.

Place Cards

  • Collect flat stones to use as napkin weights and write the name of each guest in marker.
