I need some help incorporating flying into my wedding without being over the top cheesy with it. For our first date, my fiance brought me flying, and it’s something we’ve enjoyed doing together ever since. I had thought of the phrase “Love At First Flight” but don’t know what to do with it or where to include it. I’d also love to have some sort of planes included but don’t want the aviation theme to dominate.
Thanks for your help!!!

how about a little cartoon plane buzzing on the bottom of your std / invites? it could carry a banner that has your tag line on it.

Check out Alexa and Ben’s wedding on my photographer’s site. I thought you might like it, even if you can’t do what they did!

Could you use planes in the decor somehow? Or name tables after something connected to your flying? (Plane names, where you’ve flown, etc.)

Someone was looking for airport themed ideas a while back. There were a lot of good ideas. I posted a few inspiration pictures.
Here’s the thread:

Go with a vintage theme – like Casablanca style & perhaps like antique planes somewhere in your decor – like get wood ones & paint them in metallics. Perhaps even check out a local airplance museum or hanger location you can rent out & glam it up! That would be awesome!

such a cute phrase! You should definately try and use it… how about on a banner flying behind an old-fashioned aeroplane, instead of a logo or monogram?

Very cute, and personal to boot! I agree– look for little details to keep it from being overwhelming. Planes on the invites, maybe your table numbers could be on wooden planes, etc. I think a vintage feel will keep it from being cheesy or overdone. Can’t wait to see pics!

Hey there. We are doing a 1940s plane theme. Go to my 1940s engagement photos post. We just took these this weekend and it was so much fun! I plan to use them for our STDs, programs, etc. We are also talking about on Sunday after the wedding doing brunch at the airport and taking off in a plane. FI is a pilot so he’ll be able to fly us. We figured if we did it on Sunday it would mostly be family present. That way it wouldn’t appear too over the top to our other guests.

How about using airport names as table names?

I once saw pictures of a reception that was inside a hangar with model planes hanging from the ceiling and the place cards were cute little cardboard planes, like the kind kids put together, I think with the names on a “banner” attached to the back. I’ve been trying to find those pictures again but I don’t remember where they were.
