The date has been set for your Gulf Shores beach wedding and now you’re wondering about wedding invitations. How soon you should use and out those invitations? Since this is going to be a destination wedding for you and your guest you may want to consider sending them out as soon as possible. Remember that your guest is going to have to get accommodations, time off from the job or school, save money to be able to go to your wedding, so I know you see there are a lot of decisions to be made. About 2/3 people you invite will be able to attend your wedding. That’s really quite common for a destination wedding. The fun part of making your wedding invitations is getting the bridesmaids and maid of honor together and coming up with some clever ideas for your invitations.

Go online and find in arresting invitations to send to your friends and family. There are even programs for your computer where you can print your own and really personalize them. With so many choices you will find the perfect one that fits your personality.
