Today, discover DIY ideas for a destination beach wedding in Cabo, including a gorgeous flower arch.
We just returned from the beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
While enjoying the sun, a few friends and I could not help but sneak a peek as they set up this lovely event.
If you are planning to get married and love this beach wedding decor, I hope it helps you!
Beach Wedding Decorations
The beautiful wedding decor included a floral arch for nuptials and pictures.
In addition, two large glass vases of Strelitzia bird of paradise flanked the ceremony location.
An outdoor table setting with a gorgeous tropical flower table runner completed the scene.
Tropical Flower Arrangement
The gorgeous floral canopy was spectacular and so simple!
Let’s just take a minute and bask in this burst of vivid color and sunshine.
The tropical lei bouquet is offset to one side of the metal arch secured in the sand.
A flower garland could be wrapped over an arch, frame, or pergola. It could also be laid across a tabletop at the wedding altar.
Wedding Floral Canopy
An arch for a wedding ceremony is a stunning focal point.
Create your own look by decorating with flowers, vines, feathers, balloons, drapes, or a combination.
Archs are available in so many shapes and sizes to customize the look to fit your wedding theme.

Tropical Flower Names
Some of the flowers within the beach garland include the Strelitzia bird of paradise, the Lobster Claw (Heliconia rostrata), and Ginger (Zingiberaceae).
They also included Maraca Ginger (Zingiber spectabilis), Protea, and Orchids.
A lush selection of foliage is paired with and then intertwined in the garland.
It complements the look and feel of exotic, colorful blooms.
The variety of leaves includes Dieffenbachia, also called the leopard lily.
Split-leaf Philodendron (Monstera deliciosa) and Majesty Palm (Ravenna rivularis) were woven in too.
Outdoor Table Setting
The tableware itself is pretty simple if you break it down.
Place settings include wooden plates, silverware, pink glasses, and napkins.
The flowers are lit and accented with glass hurricanes filled with white candles.
