Whether you’re a beach bum or a skiing sensation, travelling is something we all can’t help but enjoy.
However, unfortunately for some, marrying abroad is not an option the majority can afford. If you, like me, have a severe case of wanderlust, then don’t give up hope. With a few travel-inspired touches you can bring all the excitement of the unbeaten track to your special day. After all, your wedding is only the beginning of the wild and intrepid adventure that today we call marriage, so embrace the journey and get inspired with these creative ideas for a travel themed wedding.
Nothing excites me more than holding that plane ticket, knowing you’re off on a wondrous adventure - and your wedding is certainly an experience to look forward to. Prepare your guests for a wild and wonderful journey by popping your wedding invitations into pretty passport holders or by crafting them into plane tickets.
This suitcase cake is pure perfection, but if it’s too much simply decorate a traditional wedding cake with a cute cake topper that reflects you and your partner’s passion for globetrotting. It’ll be the cherry on top of the cake, as they say.
Instead of (or as well as) your traditional flower centrepieces, grab one of these vintage suitcases to take centre stage on your wedding tables. Scatter travel books for your guests to flick through and use maps as tablecloths - the more clutter and craziness the better!
With some small travel-inspired touches, you can make your wedding truly embody what you love most about voyaging the world. Hang banners to express to your guests how the biggest adventure of your life is only just beginning!
Mix up your table numbers a little and instead give each table the name of a country you’ve visited, or perhaps are longing to visit. Stick a photo of you and your partner soaking up all the glory of each destination as a way of remembering your special memories on your wedding day - making your guests green with envy as you do.
Instead of a traditional guestbook, get creative and get your guests to write their well wishes on a globe or on a map of your favourite destination. It’s a truly innovative and unique guestbook alternative, and will take a prime place of importance on your living room mantelpiece.
Use this to help fulfil your wanderlust wedding theme.
