Not all weddings occur in our backyards (though if that's more your speed, we can think of a couple ways to make your at-home ceremony a beautiful and momentous occasion). More and more couples are asking their friends and family to travel a little, and with this change of scenery, there's a whole lot more that can be done in terms of themes, decor and wedding planning.
A fun and enticing way to kick off the process is to send out wedding invitations designed to look like passports (not to confuse guests into thinking they don't need to apply for the real thing, of course).
As if that weren't enough to get everyone excited for their upcoming foray into the Caribbean or Mediterranean paradise of your choice, it's also good form to select thoughtful gifts for attendees in the form of wedding favors. For destination weddings in particular, you might want to get each guest something extra special, considering they flew all that way to be there with you on your special day.
Rather than getting everyone a single wine bottle stopper, offer the whole kit and kaboodle with a personalized insulated wine carrier or personalized wine gift set.
