Travel Themed Wedding Ideas

Travel Themed Wedding Ideas

“Love is a journey” was the banner a this week end’s wedding and I love it: there is no “getting there” so let’s enjoy the journey, both at home and on the road!

A travel-themed wedding can be lovely for people who love traveling, as well as people from different countries: “Love knows no borders”

Here are some ideas to inspire you, whether you like one idea or want your theme to be travels.

* Invites can be:  passports, boarding cards, postcards from around the world, maps..

* Globes, maps, airplanes, and other transport modes can be part of your decors, favours etc As can suitcases and luggage related ideas

* The seating plan can be a map of the world with each table a city, country or continent.  So if you want, you can have a different theme for each table, with favours, colours, flowers and decors relating to that place. The tables could also be departure gates

* The place names/ favours can be luggage tags,  globes- in chocolate with names pinned in or not, compasses..

* Paper flowers, bunting,  confetti and  table decorations can be made from maps

* Confetti can be replaced by paper aeroplanes- the kids will have a lot of fun flying them all day!

* The guest messages can be written on postcards and either sent to the couple after the wedding- from as far as possible- or posted in a letterbox, or pinned to a map.

* The cake can be anything from a hot air balloon, to suitcases stacked on each other- on a real suitcase- with travel labels on them..

One of my couples travelled all over the world and each time took photos of themselves with a toy frog, so they gave their guests some frogs to take with them on their travels, and some frogs as sweets.
