Creating Destination Wedding Cards & Invitations
It’s time to send out your “Save the Date” cards and wedding invitations. Make them unique and special. A destination wedding is a very special event and you want your guests to feel the excitement of your wedding day.
It’s an exciting time - you said “Yes,” and now you would like to say your “I Do’s” in a beautiful destination.
SAVE THE DATE
The first thing you will want to do is tell your guests about your wedding plans with a special “Save the Date” card. This might be the most important invitation that you will be sending to your guests. It is the first time that you will be letting them know about your destination plans. This card will allow them to make plans themselves. Knowing the details will allow them to save some money, book flights and hotels, take time off of work, etc. Sending your cards out as soon as possible, 9-12 months, is a nice courtesy. Make sure to include your names, the wedding date, location, and a link to your wedding site, if you have one. By giving your guests as much information as you can, it will allow them to get excited about your wedding.
It is time to be
creative! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Your “Save the Date” cards are a view of the wonderful things to come. They are a way of expressing your happiness with everyone. You want your guests to truly understand how excited you are and how important it is to share your joy with them. It is your time to “Wow” them!
Your wedding day is arriving soon and it is now time to officially invite your friends and family to your joyous event. As with your “Save the Date” cards, you will want to express your excitement and make your invitations unique and special.
You can use some
of the examples listed above or think up something completely different:
Take this moment to design an invitation that reflects the beauty of the day to come. The wording of your invitation is very important. Instead of the traditional wording, why not write something that is romantic and fun. I was married in Aruba on the beach and my invitations read:
While the waves crash on
Choose colors that remind you of the beach, the sun, crashing waves, the moon – anything. Make your invitations beautiful and imaginative. There are many places that will create invitations for you, but you might also want to design them yourself.
Let your “Save the Date” and Invitations be a guide. You want your guests to know how important it is to you that they join you on your wedding day. Traveling to a destination for a wedding can be a big expense and you want your guests to feel your excitement.
