When planning a destination wedding, it’s crucial to send a “save-the-date” six-months to a year in advance. This will enable guests to budget money and vacation time from work. Send your invitation at least two months prior to the wedding date. Since the invite helps set the tone of your wedding, select a style that is consistent with the formal or relaxed-nature of your event.
The invitation market is filled with beautiful papers at every price point. High-end custom printed letterpress invites are often used to convey extravagance while many budget savvy brides are finding that there are endless options for chic store- and online-purchased “fill-ins”
Stationary featuring a seaside-theme helps build anticipation as guests dream of a sunny coastline wedding. Perfect for a casual beach wedding, the colorful “Paradise & Orchids” invitation, available at mycubanstore.com, features a three-dimensional die-cut design and comes with a coordinating envelope.
Along with sending invitations, couples should also consider building a wedding website. These sites are very useful for keeping guests abreast of wedding developments and plans. An effective website should include details on airfare and accommodations. Adding timely tidbits about the location will engage guests and foster excitement. Be sure to keep the information up-to-date and whenever significant changes are made, send an email to alert guests.
