Tips On How To Achieve a Travel-Inspired Wedding

These days, traveling is one of the most loved activities among friends, families, and couples. So for weddings, we’re not surprised at all that the recent years have gifted us with weddings and engagements that allude to important travel-related experiences or moments spent abroad. For example, this couple shot their pre-wedding photos at the travel spot in Japan where the groom proposed. Meanwhile, this couple revisited Paris during their pre-wedding shoot since this was where they had their first date.

If you and your partner love traveling and many places abroad hold significant memories, then a travel-themed wedding is right up your alley! You can share all the special experiences from all over the world with the ones you love the most. But how do you condense multitudes of memories from places across the globe into one venue and on one night? Here are some tips on how you can put together a travel-inspired wedding!

Invitations

Since your invitations serve as the first preview of your wedding, you can kickstart the journey for your guests here. You can design invitations that resemble passports, boarding passes, or vintage postcards and reference places you’ve been to together. You can also use maps or globes as background images to set the tone.

Venue and Decorations

For your venue, you can make use of a space that will complement your desired wedding day look and feel. If you’re planning a luxurious celebration, a ballroom will be a good choice. If you prefer a relaxed atmosphere, an open garden setting will set the right tone. Then, insert travel-related elements to your final venue setting like vintage suitcases, globes, maps, and compasses. You table centerpieces can include miniature airplanes, maps as table runners, or travel-related items like old cameras.

Seating Arrangements

To take it a step further, you can name your tables after travel destinations you went to as a couple. Play it up as well by using luggage tags as escort cards. If you want to challenge your guests, you can also add some travel trivia quiz questions in the escort cards with the answer being the name of the destination.
