Hmm, this is tricky. I’d make sure to put together a wedding website with TONS of details and add the URL to the STD.

Youd hate for people to make hotel reservations based on the city your ceremony is …

If I was a guest I’d want to know both, especially if they are over 30 minutes apart. Wedding website could be nice or small slip of paper in the STD envelope (or on the back of the postcard) with all the details spelled out. How far is the ceremony from the reception?

I just sent out my Save the Dates and have been closely monitoring website traffic. Do NOT assume people will go to the wedding website after getting the STD. If you want them to know something, be sure to print it on what you send them. Traffic was lower than I expected and we have a pretty tech-savvy crowd and the website address was clear with a call to action to get more info about hotels on the site (and we have all out of towners).

How far apart are the cities?

I’d put church city as the big city, but I might put below it in smaller print “Reception in Cityname.” I can picture how I’d format it, and it would look great, but it really depends on your overall design.

When are you planning to send the STDs?

My STDs are very simple, they just say Save the Date! Name and Name August 4, 2013.  I didn’t put the city or anything… in my mind that’s just for invitations.  Most people know where it will be at this point just by word of mouth, though, so maybe if your wedding is huge it’s different
