What a cute story!  Last year, I designed some luggage tag favors for a friend of mine using the phrase "love is in the air", with a cute plane image.  You could use this phrase on things like your table cards or menus.  For paper airplanes, you could fold mini paper airplanes in your wedding colors and attach them around your table cards and menus as little embellishments.

I blogged about those luggage tags here:


Good luck!

I love your story!

Instead of table names, you can have "Terminal 1" "Gate 2" "Seat #3" etc.

i like the luggage tag favors too. you can make little paper airplanes and use those as the placecards instead… just imagine all those teenie airplanes all lined up… like in an airport! i’d name the tables after airports. and you can use a vintage suitcase for your cards. 🙂

How about the Frank Sinatra song "Come Fly With Me" as a first dance song?

omg that story is adorable!

with the table naming, you could have a large map display by the escort cards that is actually a diagram of the terminal at the airport you met (im sure you could find this online and get printed at kinkos or something). and like yogigal said, table names would be "gate 1" "gate 2" etc.

for oot bags, they could say "in flight entertainment" and have little packets of peanuts or pretzels and such.

I’m not all that creative, but the first thing that comes to mind is a groom’s cake in the shape of an airplane (I just watched "Amazing Wedding Cakes" last night!).

Everyone else stole most of my ideas. 😉 What about having the invitations or save the dates look like airline tickets?

What about incorporating paper airplanes into centerpieces. I found this picture…of course, you could make them much smaller. Or even a small airplane mounted on top of a skewer stuck into each centerpiece so the plane is "flying" over the flowers?

Here are some paper airplanes on skewers like I was envisioning…maybe tiny ones…one or two stuck into the flowers? Not a whole centerpiece full of them, but just a subtle nod to your adorable story

How about giving all you your guests (recycled) paper, and have them make paper airplanes to throw at you as you exit the church instead of rice? Just make sure it gets recycled again!

Or giving little airplane sized bottles of alcohol as favors? Or bags of peanuts?

Fun theme!

You could use different airport names as your table names. I know a lot of them are like "Albany Internation" (in ny) but some like Newburgh, is named Stewart, there’s Bradley in Hartford Conneticut, Chicago-Ohare, JFK, Laguardia,etc. Or you could name them after different plane companies. Cessna (sp), Boeing, etc.

Also if you search online a bit, I bet you could find a caketopper for frequent travelers.
