WANDERLUST: A strong impulse or desire to travel the world; a lust for wandering.

It's no secret - summer wedding planning is now in full swing. And if you're a free-spirited, eclectic, ethereal loving couple, the boho chic wedding trend (which continues to evolve) may be the perfect vibe for you. Here are a few ways you can incorporate the spirit of wanderlust into your wedding, while still keeping it fresh.

Invitations

Set the tone for your wedding with invitations that foreshadow what's to come. Just because it is an elegant event doesn't mean it has to be boring, so use this as an opportunity to add textures, play with colors and get creative with your paper suite.

Tablescape

Transform your tablescape by mixing together an array of linens and pairing them with different colors and patterns of dinnerware, glassware and flatware to add visual interest.  Addtionally, compliment the table with collected vessels and unstructued blooms to create an organic and natural look.

Lounges

Looking for a chic and cozy spot to park your guests before, during or after you say “I Do”? Consider checking out The Stolen Pony – a vintage 1974 Airstream that has been fully restored into a luxury lounge crafted with a northwest mid-century aesthetic. Seating up to 15 people at a time, this modular space offers a stylish neutral interior and has the ability to be customized based on your own personal preferences. This stunning, intimate space will surely leave a lasting impression with your guests.

Accent Decor

In the spirit of wanderlust, add personality to your wedding with pieces you've collected through your many journeys together as a couple symbolizing not only where you've been together but also where going.

Guest Book

In lieu of a guest book (which most likely will end up in a drawer), find an alternate way to have your guests write their wishes wishes that can be a fun activity for them and also serve as a meaningful momento to you. From signing polaroids to oversized globes and maps, think about what wanderlust means to you and display it at your reception.
