The FI and I have decided to get married on a cruise however I knew some of my family arent big fans of boats so we decided to get married at the port so all guests who don’t want to cruise can just get off but the ones that want to cruise have the option to as well. As far as save the dates and invites I would think to mention it in the save the date that way those who don’t want to sale don’t just immediately write off the wedding without knowing they have another option but also to give those who do want to cruise plenty of time to plan for a vacation and also to save up. Do you think that’s too much info to put on a save the date and also is there anything else I should include

That’s an awful lot to try to explain on a save the date. What about just putting the port that you’ll be getting married at on the STD? Then you can say something like “For details about the big day, please visit our wedding website at http://www.yourwebsite.com”

No, that’s not too much information to put on a save-the-date. You could send a separate card with that information on it with the save-the-date, if you’re worried about things looking crowded.
That’s exactly the information that they need, and I can’t think of a better place to put it.

JessicaBrooke926: I did a very basic save the date card (from Vistaprint) with just our date and venue (cruise ship name), then included a separate letter with more details – travel agent contact info, packages, deadlines to book with the travel agent if they wished to get the group rate, and also info re: the option to attend without going on the cruise. We sent those out about 11 months before our date. I thought it would be a bit crowded to try and include all that information on the save the date card. I also put the same info on our wedding website and referenced the website on the STD card.
I think I still have the letter saved somewhere on my computer if you want to see an example. I can PM it to you.
