The information card usually has the wedding website, hotels in the area, and maybe a map. It’s not a requirement but it is nice for your out of town guests IMO. I don’t think indicating attire is necessary unless you’re having a black tie event.

If you don’t want to do the information card you could just put “reception to follow at..” and then list the name/address on the actual invite. Just make sure you google your venue and make sure it’s the correct location.

1.  I put both my ceremony and reception information on the invitation.  It wasn’t confusing at all.

2. You don’t need an information card, really, but if you a have a wedding website, I would put that there.  Everything else is not needed.  Directions and maps are not very useful anymore as EVERYONE has GPS or at least the ability to use google maps prior to leaving.  Even grandma.  If you are really worried about road closures, I would maybe put that information on the website.  Attire is better served on the website, but maybe you can mention it on the invitation.  And I would not put the sparkler exit stuff on the information card.  Let that get around word of mouth.

I used the invite, rsvp, website card [directing them to the website where there is tons of information including time of each event, accommodations and general wedding information], and a time zone card… only because we live in indiana where there are 3 different time zones, and our wedding is RIGHT on the line of where it changes so we wanted our guests to be prepared.
