I am about to get my invites back and ready to send off. I was thinking about including some information in my invites to the wedding party as a seperate letter or schedule in just the invites going to the wedding party.
Stuff I would include in the letter;
I am paying for the hotel, you don’t need to book one of your own.
Times for rehersal, time that people are expected to be at the church for picutres, and for the girls, time that the hair appointments are.
What meals we are providing (i.e. we will be providing lunch at the church the day of the wedding, but they are on their own for breakfast.)
Where people can get ready (there is a get ready room at the church, but if people wanted to get ready at the hotel, that works too)
So, two questions;
Is there anything else that you include?
Is this a good way to communicate, or would you prefer something else? (i.e. email, text message, carrier pigeon? I personally would prefer sending by Owl post, but I couldn’t manage it.)

I was going to send it all by email – but I like your idea better.

I made a pretty detailed itinerary/info list for my bridal party and parents, with all the imperitive information, and emailed it to them. I think sending it via mail is a good idea so people have a hard copy, and then maybe email a copy closer to the day so they have an electronic version too if needed.

We sent it all via email. It was easy, and that way everyone had it in advance. Plus, with everyone having smart phones now, it’s easy to pull up on the go!

@Misswhowedding: I would send an email AND provide a hard copy of the events of the wedding day at the rehearsal dinner, or other event where you might see them all before the big day. Make it easy for them! I made the agendas shown below. I was lovingly razzed a bit for being so organized, but I saw multiple people pull out their agendas during the day! 🙂

I’ve been emailing or texting them ahead of the day, and I will also have schedules printed for them that day.
