Travel bridal shower guest book ideas

We love the idea of having guests sign a globe with their well-wishes for the bride-to-be and groom! Or, find some vintage travel postcards on Amazon and have guests fill out their advice and well-wishes for the couple.

Another thing you could consider doing is a DIY “passport” blank guest book. FInd a cute picture of the couple to put on the front and leave the pages blank inside for guests to write their well-wishes.

Travel bridal shower decoration ideas

Decorating for a travel bridal shower theme is easy, thanks to the awesome theme! You can incorporate a travel theme into your decor by using:

Food and drink ideas for a travel bridal shower

You can really choose a diverse spread for your food and beverage menu. If the bride and groom are honeymooning in a particular country, you could choose food items and drinks that represent the country they are travelling to.

Or, you could just choose a signature dish from countries around the world and have a diverse spread of food and drinks! Thing Swedish meatballs, bangers and mash, schnitzel, perogies, cucumber sandwiches, Greek salad…the ideas are endless!

We also like the idea of doing a wine tasting where you offer samples of a variety of wines from around the world and guests choose their favourite ones. You could also do this with different beer from around the world, too.

There’s lots of cute travel themed disposable cups, plates and napkins to serve with your food and drinks, so everything can have a nice coordinated look with the shower theme.

Travel theme games

We love the idea of putting together a DIY game about the bride’s or couple’s travel adventures together. For example, “The first place the bride and groom travelled together,” “The bride’s favourite city,” etc.

Another idea is to have guests match how to say “I love you” in different languages from around the world. There’s lots of free ideas floating around if you Google it.

Lastly, leave your guests with a travel-themed favor as a parting gift. There are some of our favourites from Etsy and Amazon:
