First, I don’t want to include registry info but I’d like to include a link to the website. I’m not sure where to put it, though. We’re doing pocket fold invites with 3 tabbed inserts: Directions, Accommodations and RSVP. Any ideas on where to put the link? I did a quick mock up so you can get an idea of what the invites will look like.
Second, The ceremony and reception are being held at my uncle’s house but I don’t know how to word that on the invite. I ended up just putting the address but I want to give people some idea of where they’re actually going.
Thanks for any help!

I would put it on the Directions tab at the bottom with a note like “For More Information Please Visit: http://www.weddingwebsite.com“

I think you could put it in either the direction or accomodations tab (or even both). I would just keep it general– “for more information about our wedding please visit…”
We did a small insert in our invitation with wedding website, hotel, and bus information.

You could put the link on both the accommodations page and the direction page (assuming that the website has more info on both subjects). Your in town guests might not look at the accommodations page.

I did mine a little differently, which probably won’t work for your current setup. I made a separate card that just stated “For additional information on accomodations, venue parking and other details, please visit http://www.mywebsite.com“

Thanks for the input! I will definite include the link on both the Directions and Accommodations card.
Any thoughts on how to say it’s at my uncle’s house without flat out saying “At Uncle Del’s house!”?

Just use his name . . . or put the address.

i agree with msASB… just put it at the end of the directions or accomodations part… “for more info”

My brother was invited to an engagement party at the bride’s aunt’s house and they used a cute name like Casa del Aunt’s last name which was above the address on the invitation. Maybe you could come up with a cute name that somehow goes with your wedding. Alternatively on the directions tab, you could just say something like End at Uncle’s house or look for the red mail box – something that guests will realize they should be in a residential neighborhood not looking for a venue.

I agree ith putting ur website info on either or even both the directions and/or accomodations page. You can then list your registry, directinos, and accomodations info again right on your website so that everything pertinent will be in one place, and if ppl happen to missplace/throw out their invite, they’ll still be in the loop.
As far as your reception “venue” I would just put The LastName Residence. simple & direct but not quite “Uncle Del’s House”. LOve the font you used 🙂

We’re getting married at my parents’ place, and I just put:
“At the home of Mom’sName & Dad’sName LastName
… and then gave explicit directions on the enclosure card. It’s probably a good idea for people to know that they’re going to someone’s house, so that they don’t get confused and think they’re lost when the address ends up not being a hotel or something.

I saw this wording while creating my invitations..
At seven o’clock in the evening
at the home of Mr. John Smith
1234 Main Street
City, State, Zip
Before that you can use any traditional invitation format…
