Travel Theme Wedding Ideas
I get a lot of beautiful, summery photo submissions that include not only eye-catching weddings with inspired décor, but also the delightful warm sun, waves breaking on the rocks, and people dressed in summer costume.
I can’t stop daydreaming about being on a tropical island, sipping a cool slushy drink while listening to a steel drum ensemble. I returned to the real world, uninstalled Expedia, and put together a list of travel-themed wedding ideas for you!
Couples all over the world have chosen this theme for their weddings, and as a result, we now have a plethora of intriguing and cool travel-themed ideas that you can utilize for your big day! So, if you choose a vacation theme, what can you make?
First and foremost, consider wedding decorations such as table centerpieces with globes, maps, and bags, table numbers with famous nation or city photos, and photo shoot backdrops (for example, you can find a big map or make a composition with vintage suitcases and globes). Even groom boutonnieres and favor boxes can be made from a map!
Decorate your wedding in a beautiful travel-themed decor wherever you can. Make a bridal arch out of flowers, greenery, and bags, then surround it with globes and candles. Suitcases, globes, vintage books, candle lamps, vintage cameras, as well as blossoms and foliage, can be used to create a unique wedding centerpiece.
Tables should be named after the countries or towns you’ve visited, and luggage tags, escort cards, and other mementos should be given to your guests as favors. Greenery and a sheer globe on top of a table can be used to create a trendy travel-themed wedding centerpiece.
With a modest postal motif in the top right corner, the wedding welcome sign is elegant while remaining on-theme. The sign becomes a focal point at the venue entry with vintage suitcases and hurricane candles.
With this travel-themed seating map, guide your wedding guests to their reception places. For printable or handwritten seating assignments, use an antique globe map as the backdrop.
When it comes to travel-themed wedding ideas, vintage and antique suitcases are a must-have. You can use them to fill an empty space at your venue, create a distinctive wedding cake presentation, or collect cards and gifts.
Vintage Travel Postcards
Vintage postcards can be used in a variety of ways in your travel-themed wedding decor, from table numbers to place cards. Even better if you can find postcards from your wedding venue, honeymoon destination, or another special place for you and your companion.
Globe Guest Book
Instead of a standard tabletop guest book, have your guests sign a globe. Not only does it go in with the travel-themed wedding theme, but it’s also something you’ll want to keep after the wedding. Vintage globes can be found at local thrift stores, or you can get one customized on Etsy.
Camper Photo Booth
During cocktail hour and when visitors are taking a break from the dance floor, this old camper turned photo booth provides additional entertainment. Find a local event rental company to help you with your reception.
Travel Theme Wedding Cakes
You may have a magnificent wedding cake with vintage bags and globe map tiers covered with fresh or sugar blooms — such a cakery masterpiece screams travel! You could opt for a simple map wedding cake, which is a popular option. These can be continents or a full-fledged colorful map.
To make your cake really stand out, combine map tiers with more neutral and plain ones, or use bright and contrasting colors. You can use names or images from your favorite cities and regions to design your cake.
You could also go for a more neutral wedding cake with toppers and other decorations that refers to the vacation theme. Map hearts, cameras, globes, compasses, and other travel-related items may be among the toppers. Make some stars or other marks on the cake to represent your favorite cities and destinations, and you’re done! Enjoy, and don’t forget to Pin your favorites!
