Wedding Guest List Etiquette
Destination Wedding Invitation Etiquette
Are you planning a destination wedding? Whether you're having your wedding in an exotic location or you've chosen a local venue, inviting out-of-town guests means it's a destination wedding for them. Therefore, it would be wise for you to become knowledgeable about destination wedding invitation etiquette.
When making the guest list, check with family and friends who live far away from the wedding location, and find out if they plan to attend. If they wish to attend, you should make arrangements for out-of-town guests before you send your destination weddings invitations.
If you have only a few out-of-town wedding guests, this will simplify the task. But if you're having several out-of-town guests, you will need to include lodging information, maps and even activities and events around the area. All of this information should be sent with the destination weddings invitations. In lieu of that, many couples create a web site with this information and put the URL on the destination weddings invitations.
The goal is to have all of this information researched, compiled and sent to guests so you don't have to do it when they get to town. Additionally, the guests will know that you appreciate that they have traveled so far for your special day.
