Vintage Wedding | Travel Themed Wedding Posters

Updated on March 28, 2013

Vintage Style Posters for Your Travel Themed Wedding

Vintage style posters are the perfect accent decor for your travel themed wedding.

The golden age of travel -- late 1800's to about the 1960's -- was about a time when people traveled in style on ships, trains, airplanes and even buses. Commemorating this time when advertisers used posters to woo the travels into visiting their exotic locaation or to use their mode of transportation are an inexpensive but impressive addition to your travel themed wedding.
