We're thinking of doing an international theme to the wedding - sort of a "no matter where we travel, we will always have the other as our home" idea. It is suiting because he's in the military so we'll likely spend long periods of time apart, and we've both traveled a lot, independently and together.
The overarching style of our wedding is antique garden party, with hydrangea blue and highlights of muted antique gold and pops of peach and pink and yellow.
Now I need ideas!
Here's some of the thoughts we had, let me know what you think of them and if you have other ideas:
1) We have a lighthouse on the property that will be visible during our ceremony. I was thinking of including some wording in the ceremony about how lighthouses helped guide people home, and how our marriage will be the lighthouse in our lives, guiding the other back home no matter where we may travel and keeping the other in our hearts while we're apart.
2) Antique plane tickets for STDs, or maybe antique post cards?
3) Maps as the background for the table numbers - maybe city names as table names? Would they have to be cities we've both traveled together, or just any city one of us has visited? Should we include a story or a picture or something?
4) International themed stations for dinner - Europe, Asia, Latin America. We want people to move around and try different foods.
