A travel wedding theme can be a lot of fun to organize. You’ll appreciate the possibility from letting your imagination go wild, and finding ideas based on your travelling experience. It’s a theme that works well if you’re creative and enjoy do-it-yourself projects.
Our inspiration is a combination of two different wedding themes. With the primary theme being travel; it opens the door to an array of different possibilities.

Your first objective is to narrow down your choices to a few ideas and pinpoint what will be predominant throughout your event. A vintage inspired wedding is a secondary theme that confers a specific style and mood to your travel theme.
