12 Creative Travel Themed Wedding Ideas
Whether you and your partner are globetrotters or you’re having a destination wedding, a travel themed wedding is a fabulous way to let your journey begin! Get your creative wheels turning with some wanderlust inspirations.
1. Put Your Wedding On The Map
Include map details inside your invitation envelopes or mail out invitations that show where you’re both from. Instead of a traditional guestbook, ask guests to sign a world globe for a wonderful keepsake you’ll cherish for years to come.
2. Hand Out Unique Favors
Keep a consistent map theme even on personalized fans, which will keep guests cool in warm wedding destinations.
3. Feature Your Favorite Quote
Hang a favorite travel quote above a favor or drinks table or even use it as a photo backdrop for guest photos.
4. Name Tables By Country or Favorite Destinations
Help your guests find their table easily by naming them after countries, the hometowns of your guests, or favorite destinations you’ve visited as a couple.

5. Travel in First-Class Style
Your guests will travel in style with vintage suitcase luggage tags they can tie to their luggage when they go on their own adventures.
6. Put a Map On It!
Welcome bags are fantastic for destination weddings or for out-of-town guests. Stuff reusable totes with useful items like itineraries, local guides and “emergency” kits.
7. Add Subtle Details to the Cake
For a little globetrotter glam, add small travel-inspired details to your wedding cake. This sophisticated cake features two different map styles in the design of the first tier for a chic touch.
