So I feel like this wasn’t the smartest move but my FI and I sent out our invites and we did not include hotel information. It was partially timing and partially because the vast majority of our guests are in town guests. I was going to touch base with out of town guests to let them know what hotel block we booked at and all that stuff. My sister thinks we should send out a follow-up letter to all guests to get the info out there instead. Curious about your opinions because you always have sensible advice about these things 🙂 : do you think it’s worth sending a follow up to everyone or just giving the information to key people like my mom and FMIL so that if people call asking (again, it will be a a small number I think staying over near the venue) that they have the info? Advice appreciated!!

Do you have a wedding website as well? We included all of our details on the website and just put the web address on the invites, so we would be sending out less paper. You could just email your guestlist your webite and tell them they’ll find all the necessary info there.
If you’re not doing a website, I would just email the out of town guests with hotel info. I don’t think there’s any point with mailing out more letters, you’ve done the traditional paper invites already and I don’t think anyone would negatively judge an electronic follow up.

No wedding website? You can still set one up and include hotel info… So even if you didn’t include a web address in your invites, internet savvy people will probably still run a search for it if they don’t want to ask you for the missing info. Or if people do ask you (or your mom or FMIL), there will be an easy answer- direct them to the website. Save on postage. 🙂

Yeah, thanks girls. I think the wedding website is a great idea. My parents are concerned about older less tech savy invitees but you know they can always have someone look it up for them. I’m thinking of creating the website and sending them the info for it. It was just something I didn’t get around to booking while in the midst of final exams lol
