My Beach Destination Wedding Invitation Recommendations

In less than 3 months I am getting married. Eeeeeeek! Cant believe how fast the last 12 months have crept up and I am wondering if maybe we should have pushed it back a bit further. But no, the date is confirmed, the flights are booked and the invitations out. No cold feet now and to top it off we decided on a destination wedding.

Why a destination wedding?

Lots of people have asked us this question and to be fair I try to come up with legitimate reasons besides well because we wanted too… LOL  First reason no one was of course I have been dreaming of visiting the Cook Islands for years due to its unspoilt beaches and Polynesian culture. Secondly we wanted to also incorporate some culture into the wedding as Nathan has New Zealand Maori heritage. There were other factors like feeling a bit old to get married (already got the kids and mortgage right?) and just wanting to do something different. So after we got engaged in Tasmania last year we started the planning with  the roll out of Destination Wedding Invitations. Now it brings me a lot of joy to support small businesses as I understand how hard it is pursue and create a business around your passion so I wanted to share what we did in part of the Destination Save the Date plans.

Here are my Beach Destination Wedding Invitation Recommendations

  • Photography: Its always a bit of fun to get those engagement photos done. The first thing we did was booked a local photographer to meet us at the beach to take some photos which we could use in our Save the Date Cards. My local Brisbane recommendation is Kerrin Smith Photography. Check out her portfolio on her website.
  • Website: If you are having a destination wedding it is also recommended to do a little website with all the information about it too. Weebly.com is a great platform to get your Wedding website up and running really fast, free and easy. Its easy when you have some great photos to add to it.
  • Save the Date Cards: I Loved the cards that Weddingpaperdivas put together for us from the States. This was an all online self service where you picked the template, uploaded the pics, changed the text and had it approved by the graphic designer. The print and packaging was very good quality except the international postage was quite expensive. At a minimum you need to send out the Save the Date card twelve months in advance!
  • Wedding Invitations: So for the invites I looked locally to get them done and found Urban Weddings at a Bridal expo. We looked at all the traditional beachy themed invites and settled on a custom Passport! the Passport has proven to be a hit and fun to receive which is what it is all about when being invited to a destination wedding.

Enjoy the pictures! And I will keep you updated on the plans.
