Helpful Invitation Tips

As with anything having to do with wedding planning, it is easy to get swept up in the excitement of it all. But when it comes to invitations, it is important to follow these rules to make sure your guests have all the information they need:

1. The Who, What, Where, When 

It's obvious, we know! But believe it or not, we do know brides who have been so caught up in the beauty of their invite and the excitement of the planning that they forgot to put the date of their wedding! When you make your invites, check the date, spelling of the names, the venue and the time...and then check again.

2. The RSVP Drama

Be drama-free with RSVP details by making it known what you want. Except a response by October 5th? Say it! Want guests to RSVP via email? Phone? Self-addressed stamped envelope? Let them know!

3. The Details

Make sure you include directions to your venue, suggestions for where to stay, and any other special information either in your invitation or on your wedding website (then be sure to direct guests to your wedding website).

Passport Invites

What better way to announce you're having a destination wedding than a passport invitation?! There are many ways to customize the passport invite to be uniquely YOU: change the cover to be one of your wedding colors, have one of the pages inside be a detachable RSVP postcard, include a picture of you and your fiance in the inside cover...the list is endless!

Wedding Etiquette: Invite Guests Who Can't Be There?

(Source)

I just got engaged and have been talking about my wedding plans with a few friends. Some have verbally told me they cannot make our wedding. Do I send them an invite anyway?

Yes! Send them an invite anyway. There are a number of reasons why you should send an invite (and an invite to any other pre-wedding festivities) to people who may have told you in passing that they won't be able to make it. 

The biggest reason is that it is just plain old good etiquette. It will eliminate many of the "what if's"- What if their plans change and they are able to attend? It would be awkward for them to call you and say, "Hey, my plans changed- I can come to your wedding after all!" What if they forgot they told you they couldn't come and all their closest friends are talking about your wedding and they realize they didn't get an invite? They may feel snubbed! The bottom line: Send the formal invite.

Wedding Etiquette: When To Send Invitations?

(Source)

How soon in advance should I send out my destination wedding invitations? 

Your first step as soon as you pick a wedding date is to send out the 'Save the Date' notices. This gives your friends and family advanced notice about your wedding so they can jot it down on their calendars and plan around it. Then, about 4 months before your wedding, send out your formal invitations. Traditional wedding etiquette says to send out invites two months before your wedding; however, because this is a destination wedding, you should allow more time for your guests to save up money, start shopping airfare, etc.
