One of the hardest things about planning a destination wedding is deciding your wedding decor. Even though you’re getting married in Punta Cana, you don’t have to go with a beach theme for your wedding. But you do need to choose an overall style for your big day. After all, you want everything to look beautiful and flow nicely together.

Since there are so many options when it comes to wedding decor, I’ve put together this guide to help you out. Hopefully, it makes planning your beach wedding a little bit easier.

So let’s get started with a few different wedding styles!


Tropical Wedding Decor in Punta Cana

Tropical wedding decor is a popular choice for many brides in Punta Cana. With the palm trees, white sand, and turquoise ocean, you don’t have to do much when it comes to decor.

Focus on bright colors and lots of fresh greenery. Monstera plants, palm leaves, and vibrant flowers like lilies and birds of paradise are great options to brighten up your decor.


Rustic Wedding Decor

Rustic wedding decor is inspired by the simplicity of nature. Incorporate wood elements, string lights, an unstructured bouquet, and mason jars to bring the rustic vibe to life. And since it’ll be more relaxed than a traditional wedding, you can mix and match wedding styles to incorporate other elements that you connect with.

Check out Etsy for rustic guestbooks and wedding signs.


Bohemian Wedding Style

A Bohemian-style wedding will feel charming and carefree. Keep your wedding decor simple, relying on the beauty that nature has to offer. Add in some hanging macrame designs to really capture this theme. If you’re a Boho bride, you will absolutely love the look and feel of Huracan Cafe!


Romantic Wedding Decor

A romantic wedding usually features delicate lighting, soft pastel colors, and plenty of floral arrangements. Think string lights and candles to set a romantic ambiance. And plenty of fragrant roses and peonies. You can even add in an entire wall of flowers if you want to really wow your guests!


Elegant Wedding

An elegant wedding is usually a luxurious, formal event. Black-tie. All glitz and glam.

For your wedding decor, you’ll need to pull out all the stops! Full table settings, grandiose flower arrangements, and posh seating. If this is all music to your ears, then Hard Rock Punta Cana is a great wedding venue option.


Classic/Traditional Weddings

Traditional wedding decor is similar to the elegant theme, but it centers more around classic elements. The goal of your wedding decor is to withstand the test of time. Will this style still look beautiful in 10 years? 20? More? That’s the goal here. Imagine soft color palettes, smooth lighting, and simple textures. You’re going for a chic and sophisticated vibe so skip anything that is too bold or flashy. Think gentle elegance.


Vintage Wedding Style

Draw inspiration from past decades to bring your vintage wedding dreams to life. Incorporate classic colors like red, white, and black. Roses, a birdcage veil, and some antique accessories can help you complete the look.


Modern Wedding Decor

For a modern wedding style, incorporate sleek lines and geometric shapes. Think minimal designs and dark colors. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, ditch the white wedding gown and go for something completely bold and unique.


How to Choose the Wedding Style That’s Right for You

After looking through these decor options, you should have a better idea of what wedding style you connect with most.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match styles. Boho and rustic look great together. So do elegant and romantic styles. And you can incorporate modern accents into almost any wedding.

Think about your personality and where you feel most comfortable. After all, this is your wedding, and it should reflect you. (Well, you and your fiance, of course!)

Happy Planning!
