You’ve decided to have a destination wedding and you want to make sure that as many of your family and friends are able to make your big day. If you were hosting a wedding where guests wouldn’t have to travel, you would want to send your invites out around 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date, and having guests RSVP 2-3 weeks prior. But when planning a wedding in a different location, you have to consider that people will need to make travel arrangements and that may take a little more work. Therefore we suggest that you plan on sending your save the dates out as soon as you have decided your date and location. Be sure to include your wedding website with the contact information to your travel agent so that they can start making their travel arrangements. Then send out your invitations approximately 3 months prior to your wedding. This way you are giving your friends and family plenty of time to plan for their travel and to make arrangements. Try and set your RSVP date to a month prior to your departure date. Happy Planning!
