I'm sure that wedding stationers are very busy getting their invitations and save the date cards out in time for all of the summer destination brides. According to proper destination wedding etiquette, the bride and groom should distribute their save the dates or wedding invitations at least 4-6 months prior to their wedding. I actually distributed my save the dates about a year in advance, and my wedding invitations were in the mail a couple months prior to our wedding date. Given the fact that you're asking your guests to take time out of their busy schedules and travel to attend your wedding, it's important that your guests have enough information about your wedding destination, whether that's in an invitation or on a website, so that they can plan ahead!
Stylish Destination Wedding Paper Designs and Ideas
I've come across some stylish destination wedding paper lately, featuring everything from classic, to modern, to more off-beat designs. Some of my favorite pieces are pictured above, including the luggage tag magnets (Yes, they're really magnets!) and accompanying invitation by Mavora Art and Design. Her Etsy shop has a good variety of destination wedding paper - all with the same clean sophistication as the modern pieces shown here.
If you aren't digging the luggage tag idea for your save the date cards, postcards are another way to go! The vintage New York postcards above are by Jennle Custom Destination Wedding Designs, and are so unique, that your guests might actually keep theirs once the wedding is over! Alternatively, the map save the date postcards by SimplYouDesign are an easy, no-fuss option.
I actually came across the remaining elegant destination wedding paper on Oh So Beautiful Paper. The classic sea star beach wedding invitations are by Magpie Paperworks, and the classic letterpress invite pictured beside it is by the ever-so-talented Curious & Company, with calligraphy by Neither Snow.
And last, but certainly not least, if you don't want to deal with developing and maintaining a website for your destination wedding, then these wedding invitation booklets by Adori Designs are a great way to include all of the information your potential guests may need to join you at your destination, all wrapped in one sleek, modern invite.
