COVID-19 didn’t leave us any choice in the matter and Destination Weddings are off the table. But what if you still want the look, vibes, and feel of your chosen location for your backyard wedding?
We suggest you bring the destination to you!
There are plenty of ways to incorporate a travel theme into your big day. We have gathered 5 destination wedding themes from around the world to inspire you.
1. French Riviera Boho Glam
Dream of a luxurious wedding with a laid-back touch? If you can't have it in France at least you can have all the glam! Have an Ivory color scheme, a Golden hour ceremony with a lot of Champagne. Use Twinkling lights, candles, and dried flowers décor but please have effortless bridal hair – it’s the Riviera, not a royal ball!
2. Bahamas Beach style
Of course, you can have a beach wedding even if you are not at the beach! Seashells table decoration, sunglasses & Beach towels Favors. Surfboard drinks station, corals escort cards, an ocean-themed cake, and of course flip flops to get your guests into the mood!
3. New Orleans Retro mood
Vibrant and vintage, the vibes of New Orleans are priceless! Jazz music, Antique furniture, Lace Parasol, and taper candles in bronze holders will create the perfect retro mood. To top it all carry a Wildflower bouquet and have a family & friends parade to celebrate the timeless Mardi Gras, the famous New Orleans’ carnival.
4. Moroccan Gold
With its rich textures, deep colors, and desert touch, you can say "I do" and feel like you are in the midst of Marrakesh by using: Metal lanterns tables décor, big red rugs at the altar, pouf seating, and many colorful cautions! You can also insert the vibe with some spicey dishes and wear a hair chain or even a Henna tattoo!
5. Rustic Napa Valley
Reconnect to nature by bringing the rustic feel into your wedding just like in the vineyards of Napa Valley. Since "Rustic" is all about the earth, get crazy with the wood & green: Logs as plate placemats, old jars instead of vases, wooden signs, barrel tables, greenery arch, and NO tablecloths.
