Posted by destinationweddings on Aug 30, 2013

Chances are that if you are planning a destination wedding you’re comfortable with breaking the tried and true wedding traditions. That ‘s really good news where wedding invitations are concerned because there are some REALLY creative non-traditional wedding invitations out there!  Having your wedding at a destination adds some complexities to your invite, but it also gives you the chance to have some fun. Here are a few of our destination wedding invite favorites:

We have been seeing a growing number of weddings with the nautical theme. If you’re considering this theme, the nautical passport wedding invitation from Purple Trail is a fantastic way to introduce both your destination wedding and the theme.

Have fun with the selection process! There are so many beautiful options for wedding invites. If you are having a destination wedding be sure to choose a design that accommodates all the information your guests will need to know. The best thing you can do is check with your wedding planner regarding the details to include early in the decision process.

Talkin’ ’bout my Invitations

Where we'll be married

I wish I could say that the path to our invitations was easy. Though I am convinced that the ones we finally chose were more perfect than I could have imagined, I do wish I hadn’t stressed myself out about them so much.

It’s funny– finding the venue was tough, but in the grand scheme of things it only took about six weeks. And dress shopping? Piece of cake! Same with most of our vendors. But I’ve always been a big stationery person, and I knew that the invitations were something I did not want to settle for. At the same time, I didn’t want to break the bank on them either. That meant no letterpress for this Bud. I even investigated using a local press that teaches you how to DIY. But since we needed multiple pieces for our destination wedding, it still would’ve been too pricey.
