Show Off Your Local Pride With These Wedding Details
Maybe you have lived in the same town since you were born, and you and your honey met in high school. Or maybe the two of your paths collided after you moved across the country for a big career change.
Maybe you have lived in the same town since you were born, and you and your honey met in high school. Or maybe the two of your paths collided after you moved across the country for a big career change. Either way, geography played a big role in your relationship. If you want to show off your local pride, you can incorporate that into your wedding via state silhouettes, maps, and iconic symbols. For example, check out the favor card and tag above. The Golden Gate Bridge lets you know that you are at a wedding with plenty of San Francisco love, and the Texas silhouette proves that this couple is proud of their Texan roots.
This Boston wedding welcomed its guests with delish cookies of Massachusetts with a heart-marks-the-spot at their Boston destination. Koozies (below) are still a very popular wedding favor, and a very easy place to display the state you live in.
Especially if all of your bridesmaids share an affection for your state, these necklaces will not only be cute with their bridesmaid dresses, but also for the many times they will wear them afterwards.
This Oregon silhouette sign is perfect for the couple who met up away from home. We love this on a welcome or guest book table. Wouldn’t it be adorable alongside pictures of the bride and groom?
Speaking of guest books, we have curated two fun options. The first is a wooden outline of Georgia for guests to sign. After the wedding, the couple can frame this and hang it in their home.
The second option is more about allowing your guests to display their own hometown pride. Depending upon the geographic diversity of your guests, hang a global, country, or state map (there’s no use hanging a map of the whole world if everyone lives within a few hours of each other). Have your friends pin their destination with a cute tag.
But, of course, nothing sets the mood for a wedding earlier than an invite. One choice is using an actual map background (and who knows, it might even help your guests find the venue!), another is using a state silhouette or symbol (below).
Where you are from, where you live, and where you will go are all a part of your love story!
