    Secure the date and venue for ceremony and reception before booking any vendors. Every wedding venue has its pluses and minuses, so find a wedding spot that's convenient, exciting, and cost-effective.

    Etiquette suggests that you send invitation 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date, allowing your guests adequate time to respond and ensuring to get a reliable head count. For destination weddings, the earlier they're sent, the better.
