How to Plan a Travel-Themed Bridal Shower
As a rule of thumb, a travel-inspired shower can be planned any time of the year. However, it is most popular during the spring and summer months as people begin dreaming of and planning out their travel vacations (and making accommodations for destination weddings!)
The couple can be anything from low-key local explorers to nationwide travelers, all the way to global jet-setters, and this theme will be a success. :)
You can choose a fun tagline such as, “Traveling from Miss to Mrs”, plan an “Adventure Awaits” bridal shower, “Love is a Journey”, or “The Adventure Begins”. You don’t need a tagline, either: travel theme as-is is quite sufficient.
The first step to any great wedding or bridal shower theme is an invitation. It will set the tone and theme of the event and even give guests a clue into what kind of gift to give or what kind of decor to expect. If you pick out travel theme bridal shower invitations, you’ll start gaining momentum for the fun celebration ahead. Plus, you can utilize elements of the bridal shower invites throughout the decor.
