African American Weddings

Theme or no theme? If so how how will incorporate into ceremony/reception.....

I know the wedding can be considered a theme but some people use various themes to personalize the wedding..Curious to know how you plan to personalize your ceremony/ African traditions..

STD-magnet boarding pass
Invitations- Passports
Ceremony Programs- in the shape of airplanes
Post cards/ old style suit cases and world globes decorating the table
How we met video( want to start the video off with a short message similar to video you first see before take off)
Tables named after different places we visited....

African dance and drumming and traditional clothing and food at reception...and 4 elements of taste during ceremony......

Just my thoughts and ideas, suggestions welcome!
