  • I love the Modern Whimsy: Bark invitations. They’re simple, but they also include green and brown, which are two of my favorite colors. My destination would be somewhere classy and simple, and I think these cards embody that perfectly!

  • My favorite suite is the Wood Grain Ecru Wedding Collection. I love how the paper looks like real wood grain, and brings such a natural feel. My ideal “destination” is somewhere that we can be surrounded by beauty and nature, wherever we are. The design is so simple, but at the same time brings such a strong presence. Thanks for the contest opportunity! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I chose Palm Trees Wedding Invitation in surf. My fiance and I have tossed the destination wedding idea around, but with our families it won’t work. If we were we’d be going to Sandals Resort in Nigril Jamaica and getting married on the gorgeous white sand beaches with the blue ocean behind us. The Palm Trees Wedding invite in the surf color scheme conveys the beach, calmness and beauty of a destination wedding in Jamaica.

    What a fun contest, thank you for hosting ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Elegant Architecture design in navy reminds me of a gorgeous destination wedding in Paris. It is stylish and classic and would be perfect for spring.

  • Alana

    I am having a beach destination wedding so I would pick the Sand Dollar Wedding Invitations! I think it’s fun, youthful, casual and classy all at the same time!

    I hope I win because I really want to use these invitations!!!

  • Marte

    I think, if I would have unlimited funds, I would fly our families and friends to Iceland, around midsummernight, and get married somewhere at a modern house in the middle of nowhere. It would be light pretty much 24 hours, so that would make for a really extraordinary party!
    I think the Happy Branch Wedding invitation would go best with the location, which invokes both nature and mid century modern architecture. Perhaps I would change the color to a more sunny and warm burnt orange.

  • As you know I’m having a destination wedding in New York City, it’s not that exotic or far from home but it’s my fiance and I’s favorite place in the whole world, and it’s where we got engaged. It’s all really an excuse to take our loved ones on a fun weekend there.
    So my favorite design is definitely the Delightful Dahlias in Soft Pink. It perfectly conveys the vibe I want: simple yet chic, end-of-summer bounty. The orange is in my palette, and dahlias are one of my favorite flowers of all time, which I’m really hoping I can have for the wedding. I think I even posted about how much I loved them twice!

  • Kelley

    I would love to have my wedding on a farm or nature preserve in the middle of nowhere. I think the Blooming Branches wedding invite would compliment a fall wedding surrounded by nature.

  • We are doing a destination wedding. Our families are form different states, so either way people would be traveling, so we went for Newport. I just noticed the sand-dollar invites and they are adorable!

  • My Cotonou, Benin (West Africa), wedding isn’t a destination for us, but it is for my friends and family, many of whom will be flying in from the States!

    There are so many gorgeous invitations on Wedding Paper Divas, it was hard to choose. My partner and I are “no fuss” kind of people, and the simplicity of the Simple Stalks Ecru Wedding Invitations really suits us, as does the beautiful vibrant green.

    P.S. I read your blog every day! I too am planning a big (huge) wedding on a budget, and your experiences and ideas have helped a lot!

  • Emily R

    I’ve been following your blog for a while, but this is my first comment! I would use the Floral Jewel design in pink for a funky, casual wedding in Mexico! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  • Beth

    The Natural Wildflower Invitations are so perfect for an outdoor, field wedding. Which for me, would be a destination :o)

  • ringo

    I’m actually having a destination wedding in Maui! I love wedding paper divas. They have such a huge selection and they’re super affordable compared to other companies.

    We’re doing the hibiscus theme for our Hawaiian wedding and the Hibiscus Wedding Invitations in Ocean and Dark Chocolate is perfect because they’re also our wedding colors. These would be absolutely perfect. Thanks!

  • I would use Toile Band Wedding Invitations : Rich Red for a wedding in an old beautiful castle in Ireland.

  • Becky

    I love the Floral Flurry invitations. The colors that are posted are beautiful and fun for a summer wedding. A perfect pick for our wedding.

  • Heather M

    I would choose the Under the Oak wedding invitations, because that is exactly where we will be getting married next summer! Our wedding ceremony and reception will be held at a public park that is dotted with big old oak trees. This invitation would give our guests a great preview of our wedding day!

  • Emily

    My fiance and I got engaged in New England in the fall and I had never seen such beautiful leaves! If I were having a destination wedding I would go back to have a casual wedding on a Massachusetts farm. The Autumn Leaves invitations are whimsical yet elegant, exactly how we want our wedding to be!

  • My winter wonderland would have to be a Winter Wonderland wedding… I love the Paper Leaves Wedding Invitations in blue. I think it could set a really good tone for a *blue* winter wedding. I even like the Forest Flora Wedding Invitations.

  • RG

    Winter Wonderland for sure…stunning!

  • Hannah

    I honestly fell in love with the ‘Elegant Bamboo Wedding Invitations’. They are so clean and simple, but the design makes me dream of a destination wedding in Thailand… I picture a romantic and intimate ceremony with only our closest family and friends there, amidst an tropical garden or a Buddhist temple. Mmmm, now I kind of wish it were possible to have a destination wedding!

  • Autumn

    If I were to have a destination wedding, it would be in St John, USVI, where my fiance and I actually met… at a friend’s destination wedding!

    My invite would be Vintage Damask Wedding Invitations : Sky, the wedding would still be classy and sophisticated, and the color is almost exactly the same as the ocean in the Virgin Islands.

  • Elana

    If I was having a destination wedding, it absolutely for sure be somewhere in California in the midst of the Redwoods. I would LOVE to get married surrounded by trees that I think are so incredibly awe-inspiring. I think it would make an already perfect and special day that much more memorable and wonderful. Oh I could go on about this but I’ll stop… My favorite “matching” design from Wedding Paper Divas is the Wood Grain Ecru ( because it really does look like real wood grain! I think it would perfectly set the scene for the wedding.
    Thanks for holding such a great contest!

  • Angela

    I chose the Wood Grain Ecru wedding invite and dreamed of marrying my soulmate in the valley below Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. I love it beause it looks like a tree with our wedding invite etched into the wood grain.

    I think Yosemite and other National Parks that are similar are works of God and I can’t imagine a more suitable place than God’s art gallery to be married at. Thanks for letting us dream a little.

  • Christie

    I would love to do a destination wedding in a place that is near and dear to my heart, the lovely Outer Banks of North Carolina. I can just picture having a beautiful oceanfront ceremony in Corolla, NC with the sand dunes in the background. When I saw the Sea Grass wedding invitation in Moss I knew it would be perfect for an Outer Banks wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jenna

    I love the Under the Oak wedding invitations. I am taken with their simiplicity and understated charm. My dream destination wedding would be southern Minnesota, a place near and dear to my heart, with its rolling hills and beautiful fall foliage. The Under the Oak wedding invitations would be a perfect complement to such a destination for a fall wedding.

  • I think the Bold Floral Wedding Invitations : Black is an elegant take on a tropical destination invitation. There are so many to choose from that this was definitely hard!

  • I love the forest flora invites as my dream destination would be in the edge of a mountain forest (perhaps with a beautiful valley of wildflowers!

  • AmyJean @RelentlessBride

    I love the sakura branch… it’s very cherry blossom like

    For a destination wedding, i’d still use these b/c it’d bring a little bit of home (DC) into the theme of the wedding

  • Kara

    My dream destination wedding would be in a Riad in Marrakech, Morocco. For that, I’d chose the Arabesque Pattern from Wedding Paper Divas.

  • christina

    My dream destination wedding would be in Belize! I really like Citrus Fans Wedding Invitation. The design reminds me of the beach and the beautiful blue/teal water!

  • Leshia

    What about a winter wedding in the mountains of Colorado, with a warm reception in a cabin overlooking the mountains? I picture a roaring fire, hot cocoa, and the warmth of family and friends. I think the “Blooming Tree” invitations in Rich Red would be perfect. The blooms almost look like holly berries, and the invitation is a perfect balance of classic and modern.
    I’m planning my wedding right now, and hoping to order invitations from Wedding Paper Divas – I will probably use the Modern Whimsy design.

  • dckate

    I like the Wine Vine Wedding invitations for a destination wedding at a vineyard in Tuscany, Italy!

  • Jordan

    I LOVE the Floral Flurry Invitations : Midori. They match perfectly with my ideal wedding colors of green & pink, to go along with my destination wedding out on the green lawn, overlooking the river in North Carolina.

  • Meghan

    If I could have my dream destination wedding, the under the oak invitations would definatly set the mood. I’m not sure where this place exisits, so that’s probably why I’m not having my wedding there! So for the sake of dreaming, I picture the ceremony being held late fall in an open field where there is only this one large old oak tree, and in the background is this red barn, where the reception would take place. What a serene environment… now where can I find this place!

  • My dream destination wedding would be in Paris, where my fiancรฉ and I first got to know each other on a school trip. The Sophisticated Swirl invitations are so lovely and have just the right touch of fun and elegance for a romantic French wedding!

  • The dandelion dream invitation is so beautiful and dreamy. I would love it for just about any summery destination. Even for my own wedding here in Minnesota it would be fabulous (it gets hot here in August just like everywhere else)!

  • Sonnie

    The Dreamy Reeds invitation suite would be ideal for a destination wedding on the Chesapeake Bay — it reminds me of the beautiful, flat landscape on the Eastern shore of the Bay in Maryland. A destination there at a restaurant or B&B with the breeze blowing off of the Bay and the water lapping at the edge of the reeds would be absolutely beautiful, and the invitations would really capture the feeling of that place.
