Whether you and your h2b are tying the knot abroad or are keen travellers who want to bring a touch of jetsetting to your big day, we have over 20 amazing travel-inspired wedding buys for you! Check them out here…

From £2.70, Wedding in a Teacup

A travel theme is the perfect choice for your big day if you’re having a destination wedding! Start by sending your guests a fun passport-themed invitation with all the details of your wedding location and a map of your destination. You can then take inspiration from your chosen country and theme your day accordingly.

Name your tables after famous cities or locations in the country – for example, if you’re marrying in Italy, you could call your tables ‘Rome’, ‘Venice’, ‘Milan’, etc. Hang the country’s flag to bring a little colour to your surroundings, or make bunting out of postcards. Don’t forget that local foods, drinks and sweets make perfect destination wedding favours too!

From £65, Ditsy Chic

If you’re marrying in the UK but want to invoke a little wanderlust in your guests, a vintage travel theme is one of our favourite trends at weddings. You can make almost anything out of antique maps – use one as a backdrop for your table plan, create paper bag lanterns out of them, fold them into paper planes for cute hanging decorations or create confetti cones out of them.

£79.99, Confetti.co.uk

Aside from maps, you can use an airmail theme, plane motifs and suitcases to create a cute travel theme wedding. We love airmail-inspired stationery, and you can tie red, white and blue ribbon around brown boxes for pretty props or favour boxes. You can also buy vintage-style rubber stamps online, which would be great for creating a continuous look and tying your props and stationery together – you can even get customised wedding stamps!

From £1.00, Confetti Cones

Vintage globes make fantastic centrepieces, as do miniature stacks of suitcases. You can also prop a vintage leather suitcase open and hang polaroid photos of your guests inside as an alternative table plan, or of you and your h2b as a cute dessert table decoration. Don’t forget that mini airplane or boat bracelet charms make sweet favours for girls, and compasses are a kitsch options for guys.
