One of the most important things to keep in mind when making destination wedding arrangements is your timetable. You will need to start making reservations and plans to visit the destination (if possible) about a year in advance. About nine months in advance of your wedding date, you'll want to reserve your wedding location and accommodations for guests. Four to six months in advance of the date, you'll want to send out "save the date" cards, in addition to or instead of traditional invitations. This way, you can give your wedding guests plenty of time to make their arrangements for travel to your destination.
