If all of your guests live nearby, send your invitations no earlier than 8 weeks before your wedding date. This helps keep guests from double booking.
If you are planning a destination wedding or many of your guests will be travelling, send your invitation between 8 and 10 weeks before your wedding. This gives guests a bit of extra time to plan their travel.
A save the date doesn’t have a set time to be sent, but should only be sent when you have a date firmly in place. This is usually after you have booked your venue and some of your vendors.
Your RSVP deadline should be approximately 4 weeks before your Hawaii wedding. This is generally determined by when your vendors, such as caterers, need a final count.
When you send out your invitations, it is a formal way of asking people to be a part of your big day. If you would like help planning your Hawaii wedding, give us a call!
