The invitations are printed . . . and we’re planning to send them out next week . . . and I realized we forgot to include something on them!
Our wedding is in October – so we were planning to include a note indicating that the ceremony will be outdoors (dress accordingly, etc) – how important do you think this is? Should I make an insert with this info on it? Or just hope people visit our website and see the info there? Help!

Would most people know (based on where the ceremony is located) that it is outdoors, i.e. does the title of the place seem obvious? We are having an outdoor wedding and I just listed the title, “The Paine Art Center Arboretum and Gardens” – most of our guests are pretty close to the area and should know but I think it is pretty obvious.
Since you are in MN and it could be cold already in October I would include an insert like others have suggested.

I think a simple insert would be helpful for your guest, especially because your wedding is outdoor.

You could do an insert, just to make sure. It’s not a BIG deal, but this way if people are silly, they can’t blame you. =) Just go to some place like Staples and do up a “business cards in minutes” template on their in-store kiosk. You can get them printed the same day, and you can fill in your own text & choose your colour, etc. If you really really want fonts, etc. to match, you’re better off designing your own template and saving it as a JPEG file and bringing it in to them to print out (of course, you can do them at home, too — but trimming out business cards is a b!tch).

An insert sounds great – Moo cards, maybe? And that information properly belongs off the formal invitation anyway 🙂

I don’t think that it is important. I’ve never seen anyone put that on invitations and I’ve been to lots here in Houston that are in the awful heat. I think people will bring coats etc with them anyway to go from their cars to the ceremony.

Wow! This just goes to show how different things are in different states. I’m in Texas and my wedding is in October as well… my ceremony is also outside and I am worried my guests will be too hot!!
