Wedding Paper DivasYou’ve secured your wedding date, venues, and location for your destination wedding, what’s next? Your first order of business should be to send out your save-the-dates to make sure that all of your fabulous guests can attend your once in a lifetime event. We’re here to tell you how to ace your save-the-date etiquette for destination weddings, so that your guests receive all of the vital information on time, while keeping in tune with your wedding theme!

Who should receive our save-the-dates?

All guests should receive your save-the-dates, even your direct family members and bridal party! Save-the-dates are not only an important memo to make sure that your guests know all of the details for the wedding, but are also fun to share and get everyone excited to kick off the festivities for your big day!

When should we send our save-the-dates?

As a general rule, the sooner, the better. With an at-home wedding the standard is six to eight months, but with destination weddings, we suggest eight to ten months. It is important that your guests have your wedding information well in advance as they will need to start planning their travel, accommodations, and book the time off in their busy schedules!

What information should we include?

You should include your full names, date of the wedding, destination, and your wedding website. You can also add in a cute anecdote about yourselves or a fun fact to personalize the save-the-date!

Where should we get our save-the-dates?

While there are lots of options for your save-the-dates, we suggest using Wedding Paper Divas!

When it came to my own DW, I decided to make my own save-the-date magnets. I figured this would be a sure way to keep the event fresh in my guests’ minds and get them thinking about booking their tickets to my wedding.

To start, I asked a very creative graphic designer friend to help me create the layout. We talked about sticking with a beach/tropical theme, but staying away from something too cheesy or cartoonish. Also, I wanted to incorporate my love for things antique into the design, so he came up with a vintage palm tree motif. I loved it instantly! He laid out the design in a tiled format on a standard 8.5 x 11 paper size so I could print them from home.

If you’re thinking of making magnets, I totally suggest it, as it’s not a hard project, it just takes a bit of effort. Once you have the design in place, you will need to go shopping for supplies! I purchased magnet paper (I literally bought a huge sheet off of a roll of magnetic paper) from an art store. I also bought some gorgeous cream coloured linen paper to print the designs. The cream colour really accented the olive green palm tree hues, and somehow enhanced the vintage feel I was aiming for. With paper in hand, I ran it through my HP home printer and had the project off to a great start.

The next step was sticking the printed designs on to the magnet paper, which you must do VERY carefully to avoid buckling of the paper. I did my first test page and used an X-Acto knife and sturdy ruler (as a straight edge) to cut out the magnets—and presto, I was making my own magnets! Of course I thought it was going to be an easy task after my first page of eight were complete, but I then I knew this labour of love was going to be more labour than love. I enlisted the help of my mom half-way through the project as I need to rest my fingers from peeling the stickers off the back of the magnet paper and from the hand pressure of cutting careful lines into this thick stock. I also learned half way through the project that some of the big business supply stores carry standard size magnet sheets that you can run these through printers! Ah, but then I remembered that my pretty paper stock was well worth the effort and the high-end look I was aiming for.

When all was said and done, I was happy that I decided to do this on my own. Even today, I still see my magnets lingering on some of my family and friend’s fridges! And every time I see them, I’m reminded of my wedding, which makes me smile….
