Planning a destination wedding at the Crystal Ballroom in Daytona Beach gives you an event with warm weather, sunny days, and family and friends. If you’re already invested in a destination wedding, then you probably enjoy traveling. This makes a travel theme for your big day an easy choice. From decorations to your wedding cake, a travel theme is easy to pull off with just a little thought and pre-planning. Here are a few ways to incorporate a travel theme into your banquet hall.

Wedding Cake

From passports to airplane tickets, cake decorations can bring your travel theme to the forefront. Consider having the outline of the continents placed on the cake or a variety of iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, and the Leaning Tower of Piza arranged around the tier and cut from fondant.


The cost of flowers is already one of your major expenses and a great place to save money. With a travel-themed wedding and reception, the boutonnieres can be made from the page of old Atlases instead of expensive flowers. A creative bride or family member can easily make boutonnieres worthy of an upscale wedding and save money on the flower budget and capitalize the travel theme.


Use globes as your tables’ centerpieces. When you select globes in the place of flowers, you save money and boost the theme. Globes come in a variety of colors and detailing to match most color schemes. Set up a table with a plain globe that people can sign and leave you and your groom a message for the future.

Here at the Crystal Ballroom, we love the various themes that our brides choose. Contact us today for a tour of our properties.
