Do you and your partner adore travelling? Or maybe you’re jetting off on an adventurous honeymoon around the world? Then you should definitely consider a travel wedding theme for your special day.
There are tons of fabulous travel-theme ideas that’ll help your wanderlust wedding come together beautifully, and a lot of them are very purse-friendly. Spoil yourself this Sunday with some of our favourite inspiration and ideas…
Travel Inspired Table Decor
Vintage globes make magnificence table centrepieces and they’re guaranteed to impress your guests. You could surround the globes with jars full of flowers, or simply stand each globe on some old-fashioned books or suitcases. Place settings could be postcards or luggage tags with each name on – they’ll jazz up the tables while keeping in with the theme flawlessly.
There are oodles of options when it comes to your table names. I love the idea of using different countries as your table names – if you’ve been to a lot of different places as a couple, why not use those? Your guests will adore knowing the stories behind each table name and it’s a definite talking point. Source a postcard of each place and attach to a stand in the middle of the table.
Wanderlust Wedding Favours
Choosing the right wedding favours can be an incredibly tricky task. Your favours should reflect your wedding style and you want to make sure your guests love them. Our ‘Around The World’ map favour boxes are the perfect choice for this particular wedding theme. With a chic map-print cover and rustic twine bow, these boxes are seriously unique. Fill with some yummy delights of your choice for your guests to take away.
If you’re using vintage suitcases throughout your travel wedding theme, our suitcase style favours are a must-have! The old-fashioned suitcase boxes have a cute ‘Bon Voyage’ luggage tag, and can be filled with delicious treats. They’re perfect for a vintage wanderlust wedding day or a destination affair.
Gorgeous Guest Book Ideas
One of the best things about this wedding theme is the fact that you can get super creative – especially when it comes to your guest book. I love the thought of asking your guests to write a little message or piece of advice on a postcard, and putting in a suitcase for you to read after the big day. Alternatively, your guests could sign a globe and you can use it as part of your home décor.
Bunting is a staple for wedding décor, and it rarely goes out of fashion. You could make your own bunting using atlas-inspired fabric – perfect for the DIY bride! Stack old-style suitcases around your wedding venue for a vintage touch. Maps dotted around the venue will make wonderful backdrops and will also look fab in your photographs.
Whimsical Wedding Stationery
Your invitations will be the first sneak peek of your wedding day your guests will get, so make sure it sets the scene. You’re really spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a travel-inspired design for your stationery. You could use boarding passes or passports as a background for your invitations, especially if you’re planning a wedding abroad. Or you could simply give a subtle hint about your theme with little map details and plane motifs.
