Can you guess what the inspiration for this globetrotting couple’s wedding was? ‘Travel’ of course! The seating chart was a large vintage map. The 11 tables were named after continents or regions of the world. Each table held a map of the continent as well as the name on a paper doily.
Hand-made cones were used by guests at the candy buffet, with a cut-out of a map on a doily to tie in the theme. “Love What a Trip” and “Come Fly with Us” banners hung from the candy and gift tables. As a guestbook alternative, guests left well wishes and notes on an air-mail postcard addressed to the bride and groom, stamped the card with a custom “passport” stamp (from Etsy) and placed it in a vintage type mailbox.
Vintage suitcases and travel bags were also added to this travel inspired weddings decor. An amazing standout at the reception was a homemade direction sign with the cities and distances from Maui of all their guests from around the world. Not only was it a great photo op for everyone to take pictures in front of but it was also a thoughtful way to acknowledge guests that traveled to their wedding.
Other inspirations included hand-crafted doilies from Poland and a peach and coral color palette. Guests were treated to Hawaiian inspired appetizers, dinner and drinks. After dancing the night away, guests went home with a luggage tag favor as a reminder of their wonderful time on the beautiful island of Maui.
