If you are having your honeymoon in Jamaica or simply love the islands, perhaps a Jamaican themed wedding is a good choice to center your South Florida wedding reception around.

Here are some ideas to inspire a Jamaican themed wedding while hosting your event in South Florida:

Beverages: Red Stripe beer, rum punch signature drinks or mojitos incorporate a tropical atmosphere unique to Jamaica. In addition, consider the British tradition of tea time, since Jamaica is a Commonwealth of Great Britain. Tea service for an indoor South Florida wedding venue is a nice addition.

Entertainment: Steel drums, of course!

Décor: Focus on an islands theme with details such as palm fronds, whole coconuts, shells, palm trees illuminated with mini light strands, bamboo and tiki torches.

Perhaps, incorporate a Bob Marley quote from a song in a frame or chalkboard sign to add some Jamaican flavor without being overwhelming.

Hair: Hibiscus flowers placed in your hair is a sophisticated way to use tropical florals in your wedding. An updo with a small braid or two in the mix adds some Jamaican flair to your hair.

Invitations: Passport or airline ticket wedding invitations never get old because each couple adds their own unique details.

How cute are Adirondack beach chair wedding cake toppers for some island flair?

Party Favors: Party favors enable guests to take a little Jamaica home with them. Some ideas include woven fans, straw hats, or mini rum cakes to go!
