I put all of my wedding info on it along with activities, things to do in the area, etc. Then on the reception card where I stated that “Reception to immediately follow,” I pointed them to the website for more information on lodging and activities. I update mine about once a month with a blog entry.

I’m sure it’s the dullest thing ever but FH and I get a kick out of it.

Im keeping my invites very simple so the website will be useful to share detailed travel info, event info, registry, our story, our wedding party.

Also people misplace or throw out wedding invites all the time, so its nice people can always just go check online.

It’s hard to include an interactive map with the invitations 🙂

We will have parking (free, yay!), accommodation information, a link to a weather site (southern family coming to a New England winter wedding), a list of things to do/see in the area, and the dress code will be on there somewhere.  We’re also keeping a list of FAQs that come in from the family now to add to it later.  The biggest one so far is, “Will you have a coat room?  We’re all going to be bundled up and need a place to dump the stuff!”

We put our shuttle RSVP on it, bios of our wedding party, where we are registered (bc that should not go in your invitation suite or save the date), our love story, events timeline for the weekend (welcome cocktail party Friday, wedding and reception info for Sat and brunch for Sun), info about dress code and church rules, directions from airport or by car, thank you to guests and parents in advance and our engagement photos. Basically everything we could to save money on invitation inserts because our invites were VERY expensive as is and I feel everyone likes to hear about your love story and friendships with the bridal party.

I agree with PP that is a great way for people to have all the info on hand in case they lose the invite or don’t have it on them. It is also a great way for people to know what type of event that they should be expecting, formal, casual, ect.

But the short answer to your question is that “it is a great informational tool for our guests about our wedding so they know what to expect”

Our Website will have more details for other hotels they can use if they don’t want to use the one that our reception is at. It will also list registry into, directions and pages about us and the Bridal Party.

BurlapnLace:  I’ll be honest, few people used it.  A GM mentioned on the day of the rehearsal that he looked at it for the first time that day AND THERE WAS SO MUCH USEFUL INFORMATION! lol

If you have a wedding related email address, I really recommend putting the website in the signature line.  I think the issue for ours was that nobody wanted to type out the full URL, it was pretty long.  A few people emailed me/FB me asking for the link though.
