Travel Shower

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, 2003


If a bride loves to travel or is planning a destination wedding, have a themed party to put everyone in the mood for a getaway. Choose a location inspired by her honeymoon or wedding plans (we picked England), then infuse all the details with local flavor. If guests ask for gift suggestions, recommend luggage, journals, books, photo albums, film, and other travel-related items.

The Table
Use a roadmap as a runner, and scatter treats, such as chocolate-covered coins and English tea cakes, across the table.

The Favors
Pack paper valises with candies; trim with ribbons and seal with stickers.

The Menu
For whimsical menus, print out meal selection and flag, then glue to paper luggage tags. Knot colored string through holes of tags.

The Invitation
Send invitations made to look like passports with all the pertinent information. Print covers, and have a circular rubber stamp made with date, time, and place. Stamp inside the invitation with red ink to mimic official documents.
