Back to work but I am looking forward to the 3 day weekend on the horizon. My weekend was filled with a rowing class at Orangetheory on Saturday followed by more training on Sunday. There is an end in sight and thankfully it looks like I will get a break next weekend! I did get some time this weekend to start putting together a photo book of our wedding so I wanted to share some of the travel themed details we used in our wedding. It is no surprise that the husband and I love to travel. Since travel has always been a passion and bonding experience, we decided to let travel be our theme for our wedding. The theme allowed us to share our past trips and experiences with our family and friends.
Guest Globe Sign In
Rather than use a traditional sign in book, we decided to use a globe that guests could sign and leave well wishes. We really wanted to be able to use some of the items at our wedding in our home after the big day. The globe is a special reminder of the day and incorporates easily into our travel themed home.
Table Names & Decorations
When picking our table names, we decided to name each table a city that was important to us. We used Athens, Greece for our honeymoon, Malibu, California for where we got married, Bangkok, Thailand for our first international trip, etc. Each table also had something that represented or was from each city. I loved that the tables were personalized and could be specific to any couple’s travels. Plus I get to look at our collection every day now in our home!
World Map Seating Chart
I will post the extremely easy how to instructions to create a world map seating chart next week. I titled the chart “where in the world are you sitting” to identify where our guests would sit and was a big hit. Again, the fact that this can be personalized to each couple makes it a very special way to incorporate past trips.
Tell me: What was the theme of your wedding or what would the theme be?
