I love a destination wedding brief. They have an exotic aura that's fun to work with. We've created so many different destination wedding invitations. Here's our definitive 'What to Include' list.

  1. Before sending destination wedding invitations you should send a Save the Date, up to a year in advance. Ensure guests can get organised early by including some basic information with your save the date, such as travel and accommodation.
  2. A bespoke invitation is a wonderful option for a destination wedding. Commission a bespoke laser cut design that's evocative of your destination and personal to you. Incorporating your favourite iconic buildings, landmarks, scenery, flowers, vehicles and even your venue. 
  3. Include a map. You can even make it part of the invitation. Check out our friend Stephannie Barba for beautifully illustrated map invitations.
  4. Include plenty of information for your guests. Travel and accommodation are a must, but also details of local customs, dress codes, and social rules, so guests don't get caught out. Consider a 'what to bring' list if the weather is variable, or if you're planning a party or outing.
  5. Reply cards are essential for destination weddings. Use them to quiz your guests about anything you're organising, transport, babysitters, dietary requirements and so on. Don't forget a 'please reply by' date.
  6. Above all make your destination wedding invitations fun. Entice your guests, get them excited. This could be with a passport information booklet, paper sunglasses, a travel guide, or a bespoke design they can coo over and explore.
