October182014:  I would do a WHOOPS postcard and send it to everyone. Make sure to state: The information you stated above, but also the reception locations (and approx time) that way I only have to grab one card on the day of the wedding.

I would also make it very clear when the RSVP are due!

October182014:  I would say yes, make another card with all of the ceremony info and send it out ASAP and acknowledge the mistake on it so people aren’t confused thinking it is a second invitation to something separate. Otherwise you are going to be answering the same question 100 times as everyone calls you to ask where the ceremony is.

Also, from my experience and in reading other bees’ experiences on here, very few people actually bother going to a website for details. 🙁 They just call the bride and ask a million questions haha.

Send the updated info out as soon as possible. Best to cut down on the confusion now rather than wait until after the RSVP deadline.

I did something similar! Spent so much time choosing my invites, RSVP cards, etc… Assembled, hand-wrote all addresses and return address – then I realize I had a “bride brain” moment and wrote my old Postal (zip) code on every RSVP envelope. The first half of the code is still the same so some are arriving to me, but some people have mailed them weeks ago and nothing has arrived. In 2 weeks, we’ll be having to call a whole bunch of people and I’m upset I basically wasted my money on RSVP cards!

Don’t stress too much, it happens. Just print up a little card or email anyone you can, it doesn’t have to be formal.

October182014:  I think that’d be the best bet. Just a Whoops! And then I second the PP who said make everything needed on that one card, while it may be repeated, it’d be easiest to grab that the day of.
