I have a question about maps being included with invites.
We just recently sent out our invites without any…
Our venue is out of town for pretty much everyone…My family will be driving about an hour and a half
..however we have directions on our wedding website that was included on the invite.
My Mom is very upset and thinks no one will know how to get to the venue..
Should I be worried?

Don’t stress about it! We did the same thing and only included directions on our website. My mom was the exact same at first, but she hasn’t been to the place where we are getting married, and I know the directions are just fine! Besides, who can really read a map as well as written out directions?? We are putting signs and balloons at the back roads leading to our wedding, and we told our people to call us with any questions about directions. Most people use GPS these days anyway!

We didn’t include a map or directions, but directions are on the website. I figure that the *kind* of people who would be capable of keeping a map or directions for 2 months are also the kind who would look it up online before they leave, while the *kind* of people who would lose their directions before the wedding will either be able to look it up online, or else they won’t remember to, and I can’t really help them!

Don’t worry about it. Put yourself in the shoes of a wedding guest . . . yes, directions and maps are handy, but if they weren’t provided, you would google map, follow someone who knows how to get there, or just ask. It’s not that tricky.

I’m pretty sure most people know how to use Google maps, if they don’t have it on their smartphones. Besides, you did put it on your website, so I wouldn’t worry.

I agree with all of you…I really just needed the reassurance.. Thank you!!!

I almost felt bad about not including directions too. But then realized that it’s an added cost for printing (and possibly postage) for 100% of the invitations, when we estimate that only about 50% of those invited will come.
We put directions on our website and will be sending personal directions via mail to those who have RSVPd and we know are not too computer savvy. You could try this.

I didn’t include a map and I don’t have a website. I figure most people will google, or have navigational systems. And those who don’t will ask. 🙂

I think most people have GPS in their car now and if not google maps. I wasn’t planning on putting maps in mine but since we had a gps taking us to our venue and we still couldn’t find it I have to make maps. Unless your place is super difficult to find and full of 1 way roads I wouldn’t worry about it.
