If you are planning to have your wedding abroad then no doubt you have thought about how you will make the venue unique to you. Just because your special day will be overseas, it does not mean that you cannot get involved I the venue decoration. Obviously, you will need to check with your venue beforehand but in the past we have been asked to produce decorations for a number of exotic weddings.

Our first challenge for export was in March 2006, when Donna made contact and asked for help in setting up her new Wedding business in a hotel in Dominica – an up and coming Island in the Caribbean.

She was one of the first customers to use the newly opened Wedding Showroom. She was able to choose ranges of decorations to be shipped out to Dominica to transform the reception rooms and the rooftop overlooking the sea, where couples were to take their Wedding Vows. To my surprise I was also asked to advise on the decoration of the new Bridal suite- What a challenge! The goods were chosen, made to order and packed ready to be shipped to Dominica.

Early 2007 we were again asked to design a wedding for export. This was to be a beach front wedding in Tobago. The Bride chose her colours: – Lime green, turquoise and white. We handmade her bows using her three colours and sent reels of matching ribbon to wrap around the Palm trees and the little fences on the beach. We sent design ideas for her bridal flowers and also for the reception. Large white flowers framed with bright green foliage and trimmed with Turquoise and lime green ribbons, were the order of the day. The Flower girls carried small wicker baskets trimmed in co-ordinating ribbons and filled with white petals.

The tables were laid with white linen, chair covers and lime and Turquoise sashes, whilst white favour boxes tied with lime and turquoise ribbons and sparking silver heart metallic table confetti completed this vibrant design.

The goods were packed in export cartons and shipped to Trinidad eight weeks before the Wedding day. The freight was shipped on to Tobago from Trinidad and all arrived safely and in time. The Wedding was fresh and contemporary – By all accounts it was Fabulous!

Obviously this is just an example but we just wanted to let you all know that you can still get very involved in the decoration of you special day even if it is in far away lands!
