elegant invitation suite for Hawaiian wedding

When you send out the invitations for your destination wedding, you should remember that you are doing more than just asking someone to attend your nuptials. You are "selling" them on taking a vacation to celebrate with you. Inspire your guests with an incredible invitation to take a few days off, visit a new location, and come to the wedding of the year!  One surefire tactic to entice them is to send out a truly luxe invite suite (above), complete with photos of the venue, cool enclosures, and modern typography.

It's also a great idea to tempt them with little hints of what makes your wedding destination so enviable. We love these tropical flowers and plants (above) for a Hawaiian wedding.  Or for a boho desert destination, set the mood with some Apache tribal patterns in an elegant palette (below).
