If you’re planning a destination wedding, especially if it’s going to be outside the United States, then a passport wedding invitation is perfect for your event! Love the look and detail of a passport, but not doing the destination thing? We’ve still got you covered, passport invitations are great either way and your guests will certainly love them.
Typically a destination wedding requires more information to get your guests planning the trip to your get-away wedding. Passport invitations give you all the room you need for the necessary information while still looking cute and coordinating with your wedding theme. Or, if you’re inviting a lot of out of town guests to a local venue, they’ll need all the logistical details to make it a fun and effortless trip.
A traditional passport has the country emblem on the front. The simple, yet elegant, seal can be adjusted to match your wedding colors or embellished with crystals. You guests will certainly know a passport is required to get to your wedding destination the moment they see the front of this classic passport invite.
Give your passport wedding invitation a vintage feel with an antique paper look and a dark, rich brown for the text. Add some timeless filigree details to complete the look. Represent your tropical location with a passport design of bright colors, palm trees, starfish and hibiscus flowers. For cruise wedding celebrations, the passport invitation easily allows you to outline all the ports of call and include the hot spots everyone should see.
Inside each passport, the pages resemble the pages of a real passport, continuing the iconic feel of these custom invitations. The first page outlines the wedding details, like a real passport would outline your name and information. You can include a variety of information, such as: wedding location, wedding date, your names, last name to be taken, first date, engagement date, resort and wedding website.
The remaining pages are decorated with faded travel stamps and have the grid pattern of a real passport in the background as well. Inquire about a custom stamp to include on the pages of your passport invite.
If you want to give your guests the information up-front, instead of waiting for the formal wedding invite, then send them a passport save the date. They’ll have all the details to start planning (and saving) and you can still send a simpler, custom invitation later. Another great idea is to send them the passport after the formal invitation. It will be a great keepsake for the guests and they can easily bring it with them as a reference for the events of the trip — ceremony, cocktails, group outing, etc.
