Destination Wedding Etiquette: Save-The-Dates

How far in advance should you send out save-the-dates and invitations for your destination wedding?

It is recommended to send out save-the-date cards 8 months prior, and the invites 8 weeks before your big day. This will give sufficient time to your guests to apply for passports and save money, get time off from their jobs, arrange child care, and take care of other chores so they can join you.

Advance notice will give your guests more flexibility when they're making travel arrangements, too. With this in mind, add on an extra 2 or 3 weeks to those time frames to ensure that guests have adequate time to prepare for what is essentially a vacation. 

Once that's done, make sure you pick appropriate destination wedding flowers, a festive post-ceremony reception, gorgeous accessories, and a paradise-worthy hairstyle! With all of that planned, you'll want to make sure everyone you love is there to see it all come together.
