These are the Most Important Details to Include in Your Destination Wedding Invite

Assisting guests in attending your destination wedding is important to ensure they have a smooth, stress free and enjoyable experience.

Send out save-the-date cards well in advance to give guests ample time to make travel arrangements. Include the wedding date and location.

Cultural or Local Customs

If your destination has unique customs or traditions, provide information and guidance to help guests respect and participate in them appropriately.

Mention if you plan to provide welcome bags with essentials or local treats upon guests’ arrival.


If you plan to arrange transportation for guests between accommodations and wedding events, include details about pick-up times and locations.
