Bon Voyage: Travel-Theme Wedding Inspiration

Bon Voyage: Travel-Theme Wedding Inspiration

By Kaitlyn Murray | Photography by Angel Tucker | Scouting & Styling by Jackie Ignall | Modeling by Stacie Belizaire & Tracy Whitehead

Two years of canceled plans and monotonous surroundings has kicked our wanderlust up to the max.
It has us dreaming of wedded bliss in faraway places, whether it be on a different continent, in a different time, or even out of this world. If you and your travel-loving partner feel the same, here are three ways you can host a ‘destination’ wedding no matter where you plan to physically say, “I Do.”


Tropical Trimmings

We already have the beaches, so add in some vibrant colors and exotic florals plus a fruit-filled menu, and you’ll have all the makings for this bold, paradise-perfect aesthetic.
