I never thought I would have had a themed wedding, but this theme was SO cute and meaningful for my husband and I as we have done a lot of travelling together! In fact, I met him while I was travelling, so it just made sense.

I highly recommend having a theme for your wedding as it gives a clear pathway for the decor and planning. However, if you do a theme, you really need to SELL IT (go ALL out). This does not need to be expensive! Use these ideas from my own wedding below to plan your perfect travel themed wedding.

Baggage Claim Party Favours

I bought these little cardboard suitcases from Amazon! They were inexpensive and easy enough to assemble. Inside each one, we placed some candies/sweets that are famous locally. I bought the sign at Primark for cheap – it is one where you add your own letters so it can say whatever you want.

Seating Chart and Table ‘Numbers’

Our wedding venue offered to design our seating chart so I told them my vision and they brought it to life! Amazing!

Instead of numbering each table, I gave each table a ‘name.’ The names were of place my husband and I have travelled to! Each table then had a picture of Chris and I in this place.

Very cute and cheap alternative to table numbers!

Paper Air Plane Place Settings

SO easy to make and they are adorable.

To make these, I simply bout a cheap atlas from Amazon (this one here!) and cut out triangles. Then I folded the in half, and folded the wings out. I put a skinny line of hot glue in the middle and pinched it together so it would stay put! Write your guest’s name on with a fine tipped sharpie and wa-la!


I bought a heart shaped hole punch and cheap atlas from Amazon and scattered these ‘map hearts’ all over the tables!
I bought plain pillar candles from Asda and some vintage map print craft tape from Amazon to put help tie the theme in to my centre pieces.
Another view of those cute candles + we used little ‘luggage tags’ and a jar (not pictured) to prompt our guests to write us some words of wisdom about marriage! So fun to read afterwards!

Hot Air Balloons

Adorable! Again, very inexpensive and simple to make, too!

All of the supplies for this craft were purchased from the one and only…AMAZON!
