Is there anyone out there who can give me some advice as to the "proper" etiquette on accomodation inserts? A google search has rendered itself useless and I am now at a loss…I am printing my own invitations etc and have a good idea as to wording and such, however feel I should play it safe so as not to make an a$$ of myself, something at which I am of course a pro…Please help me avoid a major fopaux!

Do you have blocks of rooms reserved, or are you just recommending some local hotels? We did the second. I titled the card Accomodations, and then listed the name, address, and telephone number for six local hotels along with a short description for each (e.g., Located adjacent to Columbia Point golf course at the south end of town and with a river view from many rooms, this hotel is convenient to walking paths and the park. -or- Located in the center of town and on the river, this hotel is near the main shopping district.) If you have reserved a block of rooms, you also need to let your guests know what they need to tell the reservation clerk (e.g., Block of rooms reserved for Smith-Jones wedding guests.)

i also included an accommodations card with my invites. i included the date they needed to reserve it by and the hotel names, addresses, the distance from each hotel to the reception, and what they needed to say when they reserved it under our blocked rooms. we had only 2 hotels – a more expensive one and more affordable one. i included the distances because i thought people would want to know. plus the more expensive one was of course closer to the reception.

Not sure how formal you want to be but what I’ve noticed a lot of our friends have done recently is just direct people to their wedding website for all of tat kind of info.
That’s what I plan on doing. It saves money and paper. 🙂 I’m just going to have the website listed in small print somewhere on the invite (it will be a formal invite). And then ALL the extra info- accomodation, transportation, etc… will be listed on the website. Also, most of our friends will be directed to RSVP right on the site. We wish we could tell everyone to RSVP via our site but a lot of my family friends are more old fashion and so we will send the formal response card with the invite to them.
Anyway, hope this is helpful and made sense. Good luck! 🙂
