Stylish Destination Wedding Invitations Tuesday, November 16, 2010 ~ 4:50 p.m.

I am very happy that our wedding invitations went out in the mail today! They went out a bit late, to be honest (our RSVP deadline is December 10th), but for reasons beyond our control.

I researched for months, scouring vendor websites, wedding blogs, bridal magazines and reviews from fellow brides looking for a great invitation designer. After much internal debate, I chose Lori from Paper and Thread to custom design our invitations. Her ďSave the DateĒ luggage tags featured on her blog are what won me over. I loved how Lori made it obvious that the STDs were for a destination wedding while not allowing them to look cheesy and overworked. It seems as though many designers out there overdo it when conceiving a destination wedding invitation or Save the Date, and the stationery just ends up looking cheap. I donít think that any destination bride should be forced to forgo their dream of an elegant destination-themed invitation in exchange for something thatís stylish, yet generic. I didnít want to have to settle on an invitation that didnít communicate my destination wedding theme at all. I wanted something that let our potential guests know that I was having a beach destination wedding without beating them over the head with it using a ton of seashells, sand and sea biscuits drawn or glued on all over. I was ultimately very happy with my invitations, but for those who are looking for inspiration, here are some of my favorite destination wedding invitations:
