Assisting guests in attending your destination wedding is important to ensure they have a smooth, stress free and enjoyable experience. And to do this, you must include every detail you can possibly think of! After all, this location may be foreign to many of your guests and the first time attending a destination wedding for many.
When creating destination wedding invitations, consider including the following information to help your guests plan their trip.
Send out save-the-date cards well in advance to give guests ample time to make travel arrangements. Include the wedding date and location.
Clearly state the wedding date, time, and the exact location. Include the venue name, address, and any specific instructions for reaching the venue.
Provide details on how to get to the destination, including the nearest airports and transportation options from the airport to the wedding location. Offer recommendations for airlines or travel websites.
List a range of accommodations, from luxury hotels to budget-friendly options, in the vicinity of the wedding venue. Mention any special rates or room blocks you’ve arranged for guests.
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.
If your wedding is adults-only, communicate this clearly in the invitation, so parents can organise the necessary child minding.
Remember to send out invitations well in advance, ideally several months before the wedding, to allow guests sufficient time to plan and make travel arrangements. Providing extensive information will help ensure that your guests have a seamless and amazing experience at your destination wedding.
