I personally wouldn’t mind if there wasn’t a map as long as there is an address for people to google maps or GPS it!

Turn-by-turn directions are a great idea, and always appreciated when they come from experience, not Mapquest. A map would be okay, but would probably add more visual appeal than actual helpfulness. I say you’re good with what you have!

I think we’re skipping the map on ours, too. The address will be mentioned several times, and people nowadays have access to GPS and google map. …at least that’s what Im hoping for.

I agree.  Maps are cute and aesthetically pleasing, but not necessary nowadays.  I never look at the map enclosures… I just punch in the address into my GPS… gotta love technology!  🙂

I usually tell my brides to forego the map.  They typically can’t be large enough to convey all of the relevant information and turn by turn direction is more useful.

Another thing consider ~ if you are just giving directions to the reception site, you can include them on the back of your program.  If you really just need to give directions to the location of the ceremony to out of town guests, a lot of people include them in the hotel welcome bag.

This keeps you from spending money on paper and printing for people that don’t need directions.

Best wishes on your planning!
