Am yet again, calling on your expertise and ideas.
OH and I are due to get married Aug 2014, and I’m currently trying to think up theme ideas for our Save The Dates, invitations etc to get the ball rolling. OH is an Engineer for a racing car company, and I am an engineer for a civil airline. So airplanes + cars seems to be our best bet, (think, cars and planes scattered around rather than butterflies and hearts 😉 ) if we’re going to have a theme at all. I thought about a “blueprint” tableplan, but that’s about as far as I’ve managed to get with the profession theme.
OH thought up a theme of going on a “flight” to all the destinations that the F1 races are held at, i.e. boarding card invitations, tables names as destinations, seat numbers like on the aircraft. I think that’s terribly cheesey but can’t be seen to throw all his ideas away 😉
Any ideas hugely greatful for. Somebody must be able to do better than me!!

@shg: you could make a travel theme with as many or as few details as you like travel themed.

I like the F1 theme. If it were me I’d just stick to either planes or cars. Not both. your FI’s groomsmen could have F1 team ties, socks and cufflinks. An F1 grooms cake. Confetti cones in F1 team colours.

Agreed, both seems too vague. If I do a theme I have to really go for it, or not at all….

I like the idea of airplanes and cars. Not sure if you picked a location yet, but maybe you could have your reception venue be an automobile or airplane museum. Perhaps the table names could be airport gate numbers. if you lean towards a travel-related theme, you could do what I did and use an old vintage suitcase as a cardbox.
If you do a theme, I think the hard part is following through with the design ideas. I’ve found that ideas may sound great, but then when I thought about how we were going to make them (like travel themed invites) and the cost, it became a greater burden on our budget and time.

You could do “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” (the movie), the train in this case being the wedding dress.
