Welcome to my weekly chronicle of my wedding planning and fun. My husband and I got married on September 18th 2010. Catch up on previous posts here.
Sometimes party planning can be a tricky business. What theme do you go with? What colors to use? How do we make our guest feel welcome?
For our special day we wanted something that tied together all of the elements that reflected us and our relationship and a wedding travel theme was just the thing. We could select colors and carry it out in different elements of the day which ended up being really fun.
First it started with our Save the Dates which were a boarding pass. I saw this idea on line and The Chef/hubs/graphic designer extraordinaire made it our own.
Our invitations were passports for our guest to travel to a fun and exotic destination, our wedding!
On both of those homemade pieces I used a compass stamp from a craft store. The stamp was also used for our day-of programs and later our thank you notes.
So guest could find their seats we ordered leather luggage tags for their name cards. They came in a variety of colors and also served as a useful thank you gift for our attendees.

Lastly our tables were named for cities we had visited. Guests got their luggage tags and make their way to London, Paris or Rome!
It was so fun to have this travel theme and our guests loved it too. Do you use themes for your parties?
