Who doesn’t enjoy a vacation to a new and exciting place? Arianna and Ricky’s beautiful Travel theme wedding gave guests the opportunity to feel they were on a travel journey, even though it was all taking place right here in Boston at The Colonnade Hotel! As guests walked into the hotel, they were immediately greeted by a Welcome Arrangement of vintage suitcases filled with clothing, jewelry, antique binoculars, and most importantly, their seating cards fashioned to look like luggage tags!
The travel theme does not stop there by any means! Arianna and Ricky wanted to do something a little more creative than the standard table number cards, so instead opted to feature a different place on a post card to represent each table. This way, one table of guests could be seated in Cairo, while another group in Paris!
To compliment the navy blue and orange color scheme that our clients selected, our floral design team created a variety of high and low arrangements filled with a great mix of flowers and bright greens. The bright colors of the blue Hydrangea, orange Pincushion Protea, and orange Tulips really popped among the vibrant greens, and for some added details, we added Peacock feathers, and a mix of hanging purple and green grapes. In addition to the main arrangements, we also included groupings of vintage bottles with various flowers like Lavender, hanging Amyranthus, Tulips, Hydrangea, and more!
Besides the flowers at each table, the guests were also able to enjoy the clever Passport styled favors the Bride and Groom had created! These Passports contained an adorable photograph of the couple, and information about their event, from the date and time, to their website.
This wedding was a great design experience to create with such a wonderful couple! Working with Eliza and Rachel of WedBoston is always a pleasure. With their planning skills, going into this event, we knew it would be amazing and go off without a hitch! We hope this post will give all you new brides out there some great ideas for Travel theme weddings or at least jump start your creativity to put your own personal stamp on your event!
A lifetime of happiness and all best wishes to Arianna and Ricky!
