Your wedding invitations are your guests first glimpse into your wedding style, from the overall vibe and aesthetic to specific color combos and the level of formality. By having the ideal destination wedding invitation it will excite your guests and inspire them to join you abroad for your wedding. Here are a few handy tips from Caribbean Bride and from wedding invitation design specialist Lesli Scott from Lesli Ink. on invitations and stationery for a destination wedding.
Traditionally save-the-dates are sent three to four months prior to a wedding, many destination wedding couples find that offering additional notice helps guests to budget for a destination wedding. Lesli Scott recommends sending your save-the-dates about six to eight months in advance. Not only does this help your guests to plan accordingly and save their vacation time, it also ensures that you can lock down better group rates on airfare and hotels.
Sending wedding invitations
You should aim to send out your destination wedding invitations eight weeks before you say ‘I do’. Destination wedding invitations should also include a booklet with information on your location and venue, what resort you will be staying at, information on group room, flight bookings, and any group events or excursions that you have planned.
A lot of couples are doing fun things with their save-the-dates and invitations. If you’re getting creative, just make sure all relevant information is included. For save-the-dates, the names of the couple getting married and the date should be most prominent, along with a note that invitations will follow.
