There's nothing more exciting or romantic than jetting off to an exotic location for a destination wedding. But planning a wedding abroad can cause all sorts of logistical questions, like how to word those wedding invitations. That's why our etiquette experts are here to answer all your planning questions.

How much information goes in a destination wedding invitation?

When choosing your invitations, order reply cards that list each hosted event; that way, guests will understand the overall structure and the events you're paying for, and get a sense of how much of the trip they'll have to finance. You'll also want to include separate cards that explain the accommodation situation. The wording can go something like this: "We have arranged for group rates at two local hotels: the Pleasant Arms (moderate; 888-888-8888) and the Gracious Inn (deluxe; 777-777-7777). When calling for reservations, be sure to mention the Burton/Khan wedding."
