    penguinbee:  How fun!! 🙂 I think I would send an email and have cards at the reception…that way you’ll still catch anyone who missed the email and guests who prefer to use their phones as a gps will be able to easily look up the email!

    I think you could also put an insert in the invite and explicitly say “GPS Address: XXX Main Street…”

    For me, I’m going to send an e-vite for the extra stuff and include details that way.

    penguinbee:  I think email + a reminder on a little card should work.

    I think an e-mail and a reminder card would work very well.

    I would send it out by email to guests who’ve rsvpd yes (included in same email as all other info) and include the info in the welcome bag too.  For our domestic destination wedding, we sent out an email to ppl who rsvpd yes with a packet that included info for hotel, travel, itinerary, FAQs, etc. and we’re doing a revamped version as a welcome packet in the welcome bags.

    We use our wedding website for this, and email everyone on our guest list when it is updated. We are also putting a weekend schedule in our welcome bags, with all activities planned and where/when to meet.
