@Zusie: I think this looks similar to what I am planning for my Destination Wedding except for the RSVP by date, but that is only because I think my venue won’t be able to hold room bookings for that long. The only thing I might be concerned about is it seems like a lot of brides are struggling with people returning their RSVPs way late, so maybe if you really need a final count by a certain time you should make the RSVP date earlier to accomodate stragglers?

For destination wedding i would advice you to send save the dates around 4 months before your wedding….it will give sufficient time to guests to make arrangements for the wedding and also its not too early that they can forget about it…..i sent my save the dates before 4 and half months before…..

We have a lot of family traveling to get to our port and then also cruising so we wanted to give our guests as much time to save and plan as possible.


September 1, 2011 – Save the Dates are mailed

October 1, 2012 – Invitations

December 1, 212- RSVP due (we have to give our venue an exact guest list complete with passport or driver’s license numbers. They want this three to four weeks in advance)

January 13, 2013 – Wedding

I don’t actually pay for my wedding package until I get there in cash.  If we have a super low turn out I will just change the package once I get there.
