Creative Wedding Themes: Travel (Part 2)

Last week in part 1 of our "Creative Wedding Themes: Travel" blog we talked a lot about decorations and favors. This week our online wedding accessory store continues this adorable theme by getting into the food, drinks, inspiration, and fun gifts that you can incorporate. Many of these items you can buy directly from, and some of these ideas can be done easily on your own or with the help of a local wedding vendor.  

The Food and Drinks
When it comes to the travel-themed food you can serve at your wedding reception, get inspired by dishes from the places you have visited, or hope to visit in the future. Each course can even represent a different place if you like. If you're feeling crafty, make the menus resemble passports that your guests can fill out as they try each food.

Creative Wedding Themes: Travel (Part 1)

When you are searching for wedding planning ideas, sometimes it helps to start with a theme. Weddings don't have to be "theme-heavy," but using elements that tie together throughout your decor makes for a very well put together, overall look.

The Guest Book
There are some really fun things you can do for a guest book alternative instead of just having your friends and family write their names in a regular book. You can have them sign, instead, on an antique globe or map over places they have been or would love to go. 

Another option is to use a "map" from where the wedding is taking place, you know, where "it's all beginning!" Our o…

Where Did The Wedding Ring Bearer Tradition Come From?

Here at, we are all about weddings! Occasionally, we like to look back and find out where some of the things that we associate with weddings originally came from. After looking through our selection of ring bearer pillows and ring pillow alternatives, it got us wondering how the tradition of having a ring bearer began. Here's what we found out. 

The Ring Bearer Role
The ring bearer has the very important job of getting your brand new wedding rings safely down the aisle. This role is usually given to a young boy that is a family member or a friend's child, often under the age of ten. Due to the age factor, couples usually choose to let the ring bearer carry symbolic rings rather than the actual wedding rings. The guests can't tell the difference, especially when the pillow or box that he's carrying is as adorable as the young man. 

The Original Ring Bearers  
This wedding tradition has been around for a very long time in many countries. In ancient Egypt, t…

Tasks You Need To Finish During The Final Month Of Wedding Planning

A lot of planning goes into getting everything ready for your wedding day. Lots of arrangements need be made months before, but there are some things that can't be finished until the final 30 days. Most of these are very important tasks that you do not want to forget, so today has a list of them for you.  

Set up the final dress fitting. - You will have a bridal gown fitting about 1 month before the wedding date. If another is necessary, you need to schedule it for 1-2 weeks before the big day. 

Make spa appointments. - A day or two before the wedding, you deserve to pamper yourself a bit. Schedule a manicure so that your hands look incredible in all of those close-up ring shots. You might as well get a pedicure while you're there too, especially if you will be wearing open-toed shoes. Add a massage to wipe away the stress that has built up during planning. Consult the spa about how long before the wedding day you can have a facial.     

Have your ring cleaned.
