A tropical island bridal party will leave you with excellent memories. Set up your backyard to look like the islands. Items such as, artificial palm trees, tiki lanterns, hula skirts, seashell candles, all in the colors of the island you are trying to emulate. Guests should come dressed for the beach.
You may also try, building a big sandbox in your backyard, add a canopy. Have folding beach chairs and tables set up all around for the guests. Add names of guests to miniature beach chairs and place on beach tables. Hang round paper lanterns in bright colors from the canopy. Purchase most items for little or nothing at your local department stores.
Seafood, tropical drinks, alcohol and non-alcohol beverages and punch are great for a tropical feast.
Prices will vary depending on the amount of party favors you use. Most items purchased are cheap at local department stores starting at a dollar and up.
