I am working on my invitations as we speak!! I currently have directions to our venue enclosed however, should I also be including Hotel information?? We’ve booked a block of hotels locally but am not sure if I should be including this.

We included a card because we have a hotel block and have to book at least 50% of the rooms (or else we have to pay for them ourselves). So we definitely wanted poeple to book. If your guests are mostly local, I guess you don’t need to include it. I would probably include it just so your guests are aware of it. Unless you tell them face to face??

Yes, absolutely include something referring to this, especially if a lot of guests will be coming from out of town. Alternatively, you could provide your website’s URL and make sure you include the accommodation information there.
We included an accommodation card in our invitations (since about 50% of our guests will be coming from out of town) that listed the name of the hotel and the code they needed to quote to get our rate, as well as the deadline for booking. I then listed our URL so that they could get further details on the hotel’s location, price etc. on our website.
We are going to a wedding in September that’s about a four hour drive away – so we will need a hotel. They didn’t include hotel info in their invites and it took days of trying to contact them to find out if they had a hotel block – really frustrating! So I say definitely include it!

We put ours on our website and everyone figured it out. You should put it somewhere – we just found an extra card to be an extra expense.

Thanks for the input ladies. Does anyone have any sample wording?

I just put card to direct people to the website for information about the city and the hotels.
but, if you were doing one for the hotel, you could put something like “A block of rooms have been set aside at the XXX Inn for $50. Please call. 000 000 0000 to reserve your room.”

I am going to be including one. My Aunt recently went to a wedding and was annoyed because the couple didn’t include it in all invites. She was local and they only included it in the out of town invites. She ended up booking a room at the hotel last minute when someone else told her about. Remember that even some local people will want to stay at the hotel.

We just decided to put this on our wedding website. Since many of our guests will be booking online, including a link for them just seemed simpler.
