Hello lovelies! We’ve come to the end of our travel-themed month, and are looking forward to December – HOW is it the last month of 2015 tomorrow? Before we leave this theme, I’ve rounded up some fun ideas for your own travel wedding from our partners at Not on the High Street – and don’t forget to stop in quick quick, because they also have some awesome Black Friday deals still available for a few hours today.Read More
I’ll be honest with you, I love wedding themes. Oh yes, things can get overdone and cheesy, but sometimes, one adorable detail in the right place is all you need. When I started browsing around, looking for travel themed wedding cakes, I’ll be honest – I didn’t think I’d have enough for a feature, but since it’s our travel theme month, I persisted. Well, instead of unearthing one badly made fondant suitcase stack after another (okay, truth, I found them too), I came across some really chic, fun and clever ideas. No surprise, the shiny map ones are my faves, but there’s lots of different styles here to inspire you, whether or not you’ll have other travel themed ideas popping up on your big day. Let us see cake!Read More
I’ve heard planners calling it the wedding trend that just won’t die – and it’s true, in that I’ve been writing about travel-themed weddings for about as long as I’ve been blogging. But there’s a reason why this motif isn’t going away, and that’s because it’s meaningful. You guys – i.e. the only people who really matter when it comes to planning your big day – love travelling or you’ve travelled together, or you come from different places, or you’ve done long distance. Travel is part of your story, and it’s the story you want to share with your guests. We get that, and that’s why November is dedicated to travel themed weddings. BUT. SBB is in the business not only of helping you tell your story, but doing it with style. And sure, we could just reshare all the same ideas (the ones that have made this roundup, and this follow-up two of our most popular posts), but you only have to search Pinterest to find any of those. We’re all about fresh takes and new angles, and that’s what I hope to bring you through November. So there’s no better way to kick things off than with a reload of the travel-themed wedding ideas that have been around the longest and are a little… done. Of course, if you love them, that won’t matter – but here’s some food for thought in creating the same effect in an updated way.Read More
With a Greys Anatomy-style beginning to their love story, and a jet set engagement, this is one couple whose future together is sure to be a great romantic adventure! To celebrate their engagement, Veda and Brad worked with Sunkissed Studio to create a travel-themed engagement shoot, complete with maps and paper planes, globes and a picnic, and of course dreams of conquering the world together. SO FUN!Read More

So I’ve been doing this blog thing for over three years now, and although some posts and ideas disappear into the archives, some keep getting hits again and again. But lately, instead of just feeling pleased (thanks for the love!) I’ve been feeling a tiny bit embarrassed. I started wondering if the posts had got a little outdated. I’m happy to say that having read them again, I still think they’d be useful, but it also got me thinking about all the new ideas that have popped up in that time (and still do so). These trends would have died out by now if that hadn’t happened. And while I am the last person to tell you not to use something you love (if it resonates with you, I don’t care how many times you’ve seen it on Pinterest, do it), I thought it was about time I revisited the SBB archive and brought you some updated inspiration. So here I am! Wedding trends 2.0.
Today we’re looking at travel themed weddings – I find it quite funny that I called it a ‘mini-trend’ in my original post (still one of our Top 20 most read articles!) when clearly it’s a theme that has run and run – just recently a planner told me it’s by far her most requested theme. Some of that has to do with the vintage decor movement, but with so many couples either meeting abroad, coming from different places, or just enjoying travelling together, I can see why it’s so popular. And just like everyone’s journeys are personal experiences, you can make your travel themed wedding personal too. In the original post, I covered all the basic motifs: maps, luggage, airmail, postcards, etc. and there’s still lots there for you to start with, but here I’m going to be looking at recent ideas or looks or fresh twists that made me stop and take notice. Like those bridesmaids with vintage vanity cases above – love that! Although to be fair, they didn’t actually carry them down the aisle – maybe a bit much, I don’t know.Read More
