22 Unique Save-the-Dates for Your Destination Wedding
Save-the-dates are an important part of your wedding—they're your guests' introduction to many details of your big day. They also inform your attendees of the day (or weekend!) they'll need to block off to celebrate with you. And while save-the-dates are a must no matter where your wedding is taking place, they're especially necessary if you're planning a destination event. To help you inform your guests about the possibility of travel ahead (and to introduce them to the overall vibe of your party!), we've rounded up the following destination wedding save-the-dates to inspire your own
Ahead, you'll discover how couples made these paper goods unique to their faraway event's theme, location, and color scheme. While your destination should be clearly stated in the text, don't be afraid to work your celebration's locale into your save-the-date's other elements. To do so, ask your stationer to include graphics, cutouts, and photos that speak to the location. You could also draw inspiration from your favorite postcard, like this bride did for her San Francisco wedding. She incorporated a photo of a picturesque town near the Bay Area onto a postcard; the notes nodded to both her destination wedding's location and vintage theme.
From beautifully illustrated envelope liners and watercolor recreations of wedding venues to destination-inspired motifs and pictures of the surrounding landscape, these save-the-dates prove there are so many ways to get your guests excited about your far-flung nuptials through your stationery. If you're still trying to find inspiration for your celebration's paper goods, the following destination wedding save-the-dates are guaranteed to speak to you and your wedding.
