6 Ways to Incorporate Your Florida Heritage Into Your Big Day

Yes, oranges are somewhat involved.

Whether you’re a Florida native or you made Florida your home later in life, there are a lot of fun ways you can incorporate the sunshine state into your big day!

 

1. Native Plants

 

Whether it’s a flower you had in your backyard as a kid or your favorite garden shrubs in your current yard, adding some native Florida plants will surely tie in your roots.

 

2. Sports & Colleges

Maybe you met your S.O. at a sporting event or while sitting in a lecture hall at school, or maybe you watch every single game together- either way, you can totally incorporate that history and love into your big day! We know you own a ton of their apparel… Wear it as your getting ready attire for some unique and sentimental wedding photos you’ll always adore.

 

3. Paper Goods

 

Table numbers, seating charts, invitations, oh my!

 

4. Theme Park Inspo

 

We live in the land of roller-coaster rides and magical castles. If you obsess over a fairy tale princess or epic superhero, try incorporating that theme into your wedding. You can make it obvious or subtle.

 

5. Beach Vibes

 

Florida is a tropical paradise! Instead of floral centerpieces or accents, try using tropical branches or palm leaves.  It’ll be like a day at the beach!

 

6. Oranges, duh. 

We couldn’t leave those Florida oranges out. They can be really charming and fun decor items!
