Destination wedding etiquette: With some guests
Don’t be confused with this title ‘some’ guests, we are not able to tell you who you are going to invite, but having a destination wedding certainly means some differences in your guest list FROM YOUR SAVE THE DATE LIST . And it should be perfectly clear that you should make your invitation list for your destination by your heart and common sense not with who will or who will not be able to travel with you. Bottom line is that you can invite whomever you wish to your destination wedding, but you can’t expect all your guests to able to afford the trip. Even if they could, many may not be able to schedule that much time off. So be realistic. Even if they’ve told you they can’t make it, you should still send wedding invitations to close friends and family members. Plans change, and those who had a conflict may decide later that they can attend. They also might feel slighted if you don’t invite them, even if your intent is to spare them from having to send a gift. Some may simply wish to have the invitation as a keepsake, even if they can’t come. So do send invitations to the whole save-the-date list, and maybe you will be surprised how your friends and family are ready to pack their things and celebrate with you, and who knows maybe you gave them a perfect excuse to save some money and visit some destination like Cyprus, just be sure to send your invitations earlier than for a home-town wedding, consider to do it a six to eight months before a destination wedding.
