Fun Save-The-Date Suggestions

For most of your guests, a destination wedding means vacation time. So why not set the relaxed vibe right from the get-go? Consider one of these customized save-the-dates, guaranteed to get guests excited about your wedding -- and their upcoming getaway.

For a beach wedding, create a "message in a bottle." Roll up your documents, tie them with a bit of twine or a tiny rope, and put them in a bottle with sand and seashells.

If you're guests are traveling to a luxe links resort or a country club, have golf balls engraved with your personal information. Cut out a tiny square of Astroturf or fake grass and send each in a box with the golf ball on top.

Send postcards from the town where you're holding the affair. For bonus points, send them in one envelope to a local planner, me, who can mail them -- that way, they'll have a destination postmark.

Lay local color over your invites by including exotic greenery, like a banana leaf, or a vellum sheet printed with a historical map of the island or main town.

Send cards that match your formal invites but add a locale-themed twist, like a drawing of a local landmark or an item that represents the destination, for example for Puerto Rico it would be a bottle of rum (just kidding) our island mascot the Coqui frog.

If you have any unique ideas, please share.

Your wedding planner,
