EXOTIC CENTREPIECES TO MAKE YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN GOA STAND OUT

Table centrepieces are an important part of your wedding planning in Goa. If you’ve got a destination wedding in Goa, you’ll have to consider transporting them here. Step away from the traditional roses and chrysanthemums and elevate your centrepieces with something a little different.

BRING IN SOME FRUIT

As a tropical country, India is abundant in colourful fruit. Pair them with an arrangement of flowers to offer a gorgeous summery vibe to your destination wedding in Goa. Pineapples offer an excellent mix of vibrant green, sunshiney yellow and sunset orange. Surround them with greens and complementary flowers. Or fill a jar of water and some white flowers with zesty lemons sliced in half and let their colour shine through with some aromatic candles alongside. If it’s an afternoon do, you can fill hollowed-out pineapples and melons with your favourite flowers.

USE PETALS

Petals aren’t as costly as whole flowers. If budget wedding planning in Goa is where you’re at, focusing on petals and candles is right up your street. Scatter petals from flowers of your choice in the centre of your table and place candles of varying heights amid them. You can bring in lanterns to add some softness. Another option is to fill tall vases with petals and float tea candles on top.

OFFER A TAKEAWAY

Turn your table centrepieces into a wedding favour with potted plants that can be taken away as a memento of your big day. Choose from exotic cacti or go with seasonal plants. Red jasmine or frangipani is the state plant of Goa, and a beautiful one at that. Other local plants that lend a pretty addition to your table include the peacock flower, datura and buttercup. Use clay pots or jute grow bags for a rustic look, and ceramic or glass for a daintier and more elegant feel.

LIFT SPIRITS WITH EDIBLES

Food brings people together. Go all out with your wedding planning in Goa by experimenting with edible centrepieces. Cheeseboards are the perfect snackable beauty, ideal for sangeet cocktail parties. Your guests can graze and sip on paired wines and cocktails as they watch performances. You can also use lollipops of varying sizes in glass jars for the children’s tables and tiered stands with delightful nibbles for adults. Frozen melon balls, foil-wrapped chocolates and carved fruit also make pretty centrepieces.

TRY A THEME

If flowers and cookies aren’t your thing, try an idea that means something to you. If you’re a fan of the beach or your party is by the sea, you could incorporate seashells. Fill clear glasses or vases with sand and top them with a variety of seashells and seaglass (remember to put them back on the beach after you’re done). Avoid coral since these are important for reef building. Use rice lights stuffed into bottles, colourful glass jars topped with candles or photo frames surrounded by net and ribbons.

ADD SOME FRAGRANCE

Use potted lavender bunches as your table centrepiece or a clay pot filled with pot pourri. Aromatic candles tied with broad burlap and narrow ribbons make a pretty and fragrant addition to your destination wedding in Goa. Dried orange and lemon peels either as strips or hollowed-out halves work as table décor and candle holders.
