What Should a Destination Wedding Invitation Include?

By Alice Nichols

A destination wedding is a special event that requires a unique invitation. After all, it’s not every day that your family and friends get to join you on your special day in a far-away location. But what should be included in the invitation?

The Essentials: Of course, the invitation should include the basics – who’s hosting, who’s getting married, when and where the ceremony will take place, and RSVP information. Make sure to include the full name of each person involved in the wedding and make sure that any foreign words or phrases are spelled correctly. In addition, be sure to include any travel information that your guests may need such as flight information or hotel recommendations.

The Theme: If you’re having a themed wedding then make sure it is reflected in your invitation. Whether it’s a beach theme or an outdoor adventure theme, adding small touches of decoration to your invitation can help set the tone for your special day.

Important Details: If there are any important details that you want your guests to know about such as dress code, activities available at the destination or meal arrangements then make sure these are included in the invitation. This will help ensure that everyone is prepared for what’s to come on your big day.

The Personal Touch: Finally, don’t forget to add a personal touch! A poem or heartfelt note from you and your partner will show just how much you appreciate them making the trip to be with you on this special occasion.


A destination wedding invitation should include all of the essentials such as who is hosting and when and where it is taking place; plus any relevant travel information. It should also reflect any themes if applicable, provide important details about the event itself and include a personal touch from both partners. With these things in mind, you can create an inviting and memorable invitation for those attending your special day!
