Ask Etta: Destination Dates

While we dish about the hottest trends and latest designs (aka the fun parts of wedding planning!) we also know how stressful prepping for the big day can be. So, we would like to formally introduce you to Etta, our new etiquette expert. She’s ready and happy to delve into your every etiquette dilemma.

Laura Asks…

I’m having a destination wedding (in the US) so no need for a passport, when should I send the wedding invitations? Also, RSVP date is six weeks prior to wedding day.

Etta Says…

For invitations, I recommend sending them no less than eight weeks (preferably 3 months) before your wedding. This gives guests plenty of time to clear their calendars for the event and make all the necessary travel arrangements.

Timely invitations also allow you to make the RSVP date earlier—about 3-4 weeks before the wedding. I don’t recommend setting the RSVP date any later than 2 weeks prior, just to allow you and your future hubby plenty of time to put together your seating chart, catering totals, etc—and most importantly, to avoid any unnecessary stress!
