    Well, I say include the info. Being a good hostess includes clear communication, so the more information your guests have available to them, the better.

    Do you have a wedding website? If so, just put the info on there – people who are interested will seek it out.

    Our wedding is a (US city) destination wedding, and in my opnion, the whole point of the STD is to get our guests thinking of travel plans and hotel rooms.

    I agree, put it on your wedding website and put a shortened custom url on the STD’s

    @ShutterbugCait:  Sorry I must’ve glossed over that you already had your STD’s- woops! Things have definitely changed in the way of weddings in 7 years. Wedding websites are becoming the norm, and they’re free!

    If you do change your mind about the wedding website, you can print out business cards and insert them with the STD’s. If not, word of mouth is the only other way I see it.

    I was going to send out hotel info but opted not to because a lot of places were already booked up and I didn’t want it to be ‘my issue’ if someone didn’t get in to one I suggested.

    That said – I did recommend booking hotels early for those who needed to. We live 300 miles away from everyone and they would all need a hotel. This way, I’ve told them they need to book soon and if they have trouble booking later on then that’s not my problem!

    I think the wedding website is a good compromise!

    @ShutterbugCait:  If you’ve already ordered them and they’re ready to go I wouldn’t worry about it.  Perhaps add the info with the invitation and in the meantime I’d just use word of mouth to get the info out.
