My husband is a pilot, too, and while we didn’t do an aviation theme, we included planes just a bit — most notably for our “guestbook,” which was a 4′ wooden propeller that guests signed with metallic sharpies. Not sure if that’s your taste, but it looks AWESOME, and will be an awesome piece of art to hang in our home forever. 🙂

I like the idea of incorporating planes/aviation into your paper stuff as well — we did it with our Save-The-Date Cards and thank yous, and it was really cute.

Good luck!

love the idea!! i def love the tables! i saw soo many unique ideas you can do! you can get mini white choc airplanes as favors or airplane key chains, have the groomsmen wear diff pilot wings instead of bouts, or cufflinks.. have lil “wings” in the bm bouquets.. paper plane escort cards – you can make in your colors like this 1st pic:

can also have paper planes hanging from trees :

We were like jennicole01 as well.  Aviation wasn’t part of our theme (modern, rustic, mountain, winter wedding) but we did incorporate it a bit.

We used an airplane graphic on our save the dates and invitations.  

Our favours (for the men) were aviation (pictures that Barry took while flying and of his plane at the time) themed bubble magnets.

We made sure to get a “blue steele” type of wedding photo in aviators:

Our grande entrance was to the Top Gun Theme song.  We had made paper airplanes for people to send flying at us while we were being “marshalled” in from the patio:

People really loved the grande entrance as we had 19 pilots there.  We made sure to get a group shot of them all in the photobooth:

My husband didn’t want the theme to focus on aviation but I made sure to add touches here and there.  Overall I think it worked well.
