    @AlmostMrsPeck:  You definitely don’t need all of those inserts!  You can put things to do/wedding events on the wedding website, and use word of mouth for anyone who isn’t tech savvy.  Chances are you’d tell your grandparents anyway.

    In my invites I had the invitation, the RSVP, and one insert with hotel information.  We put a map on the website, and also printed one on the back of our programs (ceremony and reception were a few miles apart, which can take up to 20 minutes in downtown Seattle).  So that worked out so well.  You don’t want to put too much in the invitation…too much risk of people recycling it too early or forgetting to bring it with them.  Get people the information they need this far out- when your wedding is, where it is, and a hotel card so they can make reservations.
