Destination WeddingsSave the Date
You’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! They are a fool-proof option that has so many different amazing designs that are certain to fit your style and needs.
