If themes were in when Will and I were married, this may have been the winner for our wedding (this one and the romantic theme I did a few months back are about tied on the awesomeness factor). If you know us, you know we try to never stay home. We LOVE seeing new places, sipping fine wine and trying the unique culinary specialties of the areas we are visiting. Needless to say, I love this theme.
If you are world travelers (or even state travelers) this could be a really fun theme for you and your guests. Here are a few ideas I thought might be neat for the “traveler” wedding theme idea.
I’m picturing colors either being vintage and neutral or bright enough to match the hot air balloon you and your new husband could exit the wedding in. I don’t know if there is anything more romantic then the thought of taking a sunset tour over the city in a hot air balloon for your first adventure as husband and wife!
No matter what colors you choose to highlight on your wedding day, details for this theme could include old suitcases or boxes with fake (or real) postage on them, telegraphs and old phones, vintage toy airplanes, binoculars, eiffel tower statues, globes and maps.
You could design your wedding program to look something like a passport.
Use paper airplanes or fake boarding passes as your table assignment cards.
Have guests leave their greetings on old looking postcards. They can even take a polaroid of themselves to attach to the postcard before putting it in an old suitcase for you to look at later.
Favors my be mini chocolate airplanes, hot air balloon cupcakes or something else unexpected tucked away in a tiny box with a map or stamp on it.
The possibilities are really exciting! Most of all, add your very own personal thoughts on traveling and have fun!
