I was wondering if the directions card is supposed to be to the church, reception hall or the hotels where everyone is staying. My wedding is a driving distance destination wedding and people are staying at 3 different hotels, depending on the price they want to spend. I wasn’t sure if I should just put for directions see our website and I can list out the directions to all locations. Or I was thinking of just putting the addresses of all locations since mostly everyone has internet or a GPS these days. Please let me know your thoughts. I would greatly appreciate it.

Generally the directions card just provides the directions that are applicable to everybody – which would be the directions to the church and from the church to the reception venue, if necessary. You usually start your directions from a major street or highway (e.g., from I-70; from I-25), so that it is equal opportunity for people coming from the north/south or east/west, unless there is really only one major route near your venue. Directions to the hotels can be put on your website if you like, but you’re right in that all of your guests should be able to mapquest their hotel. Even though wedding guests tend to act helpless (I had friends who travel every week of the year for business but were apparently unable to make their own hotel reservations) they are probably capable of getting to their own hotels without too much assistance.

i put all the info on our website. our ceremony and reception were at the same spot, but if they were separate our little insert with direction would’ve included direction to ceremony site, and then from there to the reception site.

on my invitations, it was directions from the church to the reception hall. all other directions (since people can come from so many areas going to the church), are available on the website.
i did it this way to save on printing on the invites.
