save the date: destination wedding.

happy wedding wednesday! this weekend i had dinner with my older brother, his fiance and her kids and we got to talk about their 2014 destination wedding! they are going to get married in the bahamas (a place our family was lucky enough to visit together). it is a gorgeous island and it will be the perfect place for my brother and amy to make it official. i have no doubt the wedding will be gorgeous and i am happy to take a mental vacation to somewhere sunny and dream up beachy wedding ideas. 


first up: the venue. andy and amy are visiting the bahamas this spring, so they need to have an idea of how many guests might attend to make sure the venue is large enough. to get an idea of who plans to attend and allow guests ample time to save for the trip, they are going to send out save the dates and include an RSVP. i am smitten with these sun-soaked save the dates::




have you ever attended a beach wedding? (this will be my first one!!)

  4. oh man - I wish we were sending out an RSVP with our STDs since it's a destination wedding for half the guests! so far, most of my American friends have been good about telling me whether or not they can (or think they can) make it, but it would have made the bigger planning pieces much easier to know for sure.

    oh well!

  5. all of these save the dates are so cute! i love the idea of including an rsvp for a destination wedding. usually people do know that far in advance what their financial situation is, etc. i hope you'll share their final choice.

  9. Such an important part for a destination wedding. I love the save-the-date pic of "Susan & Michaels" and "Millie and Aaron". They seem fresh and clean/beach style.
    I can't wait to eventually start planning our beach wedding!
