Destination Wedding & Save the Date Cards
I need to make sure we are doing this right...here's my dilema...
My fiance and I are planning a wedding for November 2008 in Puerto Vallarta. We want to give everyone a far enough heads up so that those who want to attend can plan vacation leave, finances, passports, etc. accordingly. We are meeting with the travel agent at the end of the month to discuss the arrangements.
After reading the other posts regarding destination weddings and the save the date cards, I am thinking it would be best to send out the save the date cards with our names, date and location and maybe include the travel agents information as well. Is this right?
Then we would send out the regular invitations six weeks before the actual wedding right?
The family members we have told said that they would go or be more willing to go if they had at least a year's time to save and pay off the trip without it interupting their regular finances - which we can totally understand. So our thinking is to get the information out to people in August - September of this year.
What do you guys think? Thanks for your imput!
