The world at your table
If you’re a keen traveler and are looking to incorporate some of your most treasured locations into your wedding, the map wedding table plan by The Wedding of my Dreams is the perfect solution. Name each table at your reception after a country and pin a vintage-style gift tag, listing all the guests at that table, to the correlating location on the map. Get creative with the countries you choose; they could be places you’ve been, somewhere you’re hoping to go, or even make it relevant to the guests who’ll be sitting at each table (if you have family coming from abroad, name their table after the country they’re from). To make it even more special, you could choose the places that hold sentimental value for both of you, like the place you got engaged, are getting married or are going on your honeymoon.
You can choose from a range of different maps depending on which locations you hold dear; the world map (our personal favourite), a map of Paris, a map of Rome, the London Underground map and a map of the British Isles. We like the idea of the London Underground map – if you live in, or are from London you could name the tables at your reception after the tube stops that are nearest your favourite haunts. All maps are printed on archival quality Italian laid paper stock and measure 71.1 x 50.8cm (28″ x 20”), and can be pasted onto a mount board or placed in a frame (without glass) to make it sturdy enough to stand on an easel or be rested against a wall so guests can find their seat.
This is one of our favourite (and one of the easiest) original wedding styling ideas for a travel-inspired wedding, see more on our travel-inspired pinboard on Pinterest.
