When you’re planning a wedding, it’s always a good idea to keep your guests in the loop.

If you’re about to tie the knot, take these tips on board.

Sending a save the datebeing able to make the big day. It’s particularly important to give your guests as much notice as possible if you’re having a destination wedding, as there’s a lot more for them to think about and plan.

What to include in your invitation

When it comes to sending invitations, it’s really helpful to give your guests plenty of information about the day, especially if there are lots of people traveling from other states or countries. Ideally, your invitations should include details about the location of the venue and how to get there. It’s useful to include driving directions, including the postcode, as most of us rely on satnavs these days, as well as tips for those who may be catching the train, flying or taking the bus.

A timeline is always a good idea. It’s vital that your guests know what time they need to be at the ceremony and when the event finishes. Knowing what’s coming in between can also help guests plan ahead. You may want to add details about when time cocktail hour will begin, when you’re sitting down for dinner, what time the speeches will start and when it’s time to hit the dancefloor.

Most guests will want to buy you a wedding gift whether you ask for one on not. If you have a wedding registry, include the link on your invitation. You may also need to provide a username and password. If you don’t have a gift list, and you’d like to ask for financial contributions to a honeymoon or home improvements, for example, you can do this by including a short ditty or a poem. This way, it looks a little more polite than simply asking for a donation. You’ll find lots of samples and ideas online.

If you have a dress code, this should be made clear on your invitation.

If you are providing transport from local hotels to the venue or from the ceremony location to the reception venue, make sure people are aware of the pickup points and times. If you need numbers before the day, ask people to confirm whether they would like transport on their RSVP slip.

If you have friends and family visiting from overseas or traveling from afar, provide details of hotels close to the venue. It’s helpful to include options for all budgets. Sometimes, hotels offer discounts for block bookings, so see if you can negotiate a better price for those in your wedding party.

Finally, include an RSVP card in your invitation. This should specify a deadline, as well as confirming whether or not you can attend and whether you’d like to book a place on arranged transport. It’s also essential to ask for details of dietary requirements and allergies.
