So we’re not doing save the dates (honestly, just kind of ran out of time!) but since almost everyone we’re inviting to the wedding will be from out of town, it’s really important to get information about accommodations to them. I bought a wedding invitation pack that doesn’t include an information card, so I’m wondering how to best spread this information. I have a fairly extensive website that has the room blocks and other potential accommodations listed, but I’m not sure how to include that with the invitation. I can’t imagine I’d put it on the invitation itself, right? Any ideas?

Well if the Out of Town guests are like mine, several of them are not internet saavy. So I’d say to include a DIY card like we plan on doing. It can be a nice, colored paper or something that won’t look bad in the invitations. We got our paper from Michael’s and its really classy! Anyway, on it we’ll have the name/address/phone number of the hotel information. From there they can do the research themselves. They can decide which hotel they’d like to stay at. We’ll also put at the bottom, “information can also be found on our website: ……….”. So whichever way they feel comfortable obtaining the info is on them. Hope that helps a bit!

I just included enclosure cards with my invitations letting our guests know there was a block of rooms held under our name until a certain date and to visit our website for more information. Our website has all the other info they’ll need. It’s not something that should go on the invitation (IMO), so the enclosure card was the best solution I could come up with.

Have you thought about buying a package of “business cards” from an office supply store and designing them on your computer so that they go along with your suite and including it like that? They have white, off white, linen – some nice options, and you can always add some emblishment from your computer. You can also order from Vistaprint if you need a lot. Then you can include the little card that says something to the effect of “for more information on accomdations, directions, and more, check out our website..www.our website.com” hope this helps!

I was in Staples yesterday and they had “mix and match” paper goods in all sorts of colors–I would try there to see if you can find a paper color/style to match!

Ours is going to look like this (but will have details for the room blocks). They are an insert for pocketfolds.
Please don’t put your website on the invitation unless it is extremely informal. You can get a package of “clean edge” business cards or postcards at the office supply store and print directly on those.

My reception card is doing double duty – on the back it has the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the two hotels where we’ve blocked off rooms, and it also says, “For more information on planning your trip, please visit [website address].”
Most people have already contacted me directly about which hotels they should book, but hopefully this will cover all our bases!
