I would just do exactly what you have planned, only don’t really super design it to match unless you know someone who could help you with it (scan the cover and change it, etc.). Just use a similar font and have it be an info card, cut it down to size. Or you could just direct people to a website. There are a lot of free ones.

i got my invites boxed from michaels, and like you said, only invite and rsvp (and a thank you that wasnt helping haha)

i got the coordinating programs, and printed the info on them, using a paper cutter to trim them to be smaller than the invite and to take off the holes that were at the top to tie ribbon through

for a visual, these are the sets i used:

I had the same problem, but luckily my kits were on clearance and were dirt cheap.  So, I bought double the kits I needed.  Then the reception info was on the same type of paper as the ceremony info.  Now I have many leftovers for envelopes and RSVP cards, but I’m hoping to repurpose them somehow.

I used a kit from Michael’s as well – also on clearance for next to nothing 🙂 Instead of doing a traditional RSVP card, I set up a gmail account with an email and a voicemail for people to RSVP to. I put that information on the RSVP card along with my wedding website info.

It’s definitely not a plan for everyone, but I liked not having to keep up with the RSVP cards (or pay for the postage!).

I also purchased our invites from Micheal’s (one a week with the 40% off coupon).

I plan on just using card stock to give the extra info.

I also purchased boxed kits from Michaels on clearence for $20!  I never heard of the matching wedding programs though. I’m going to have to look into it.

I used a kit from Target, but I just bought mini cards from moo.com that I designed in the same way.
