    I think you should put down Bryn Mawr (your ceremony spot, hence where you are technically getting married).  We are getting married close to Los Angeles, but like 15 min away from the actual city borders.  We put down the city name of our ceremony/reception site on our STDs.  Hope that helps!  🙂

    I’d put Philly, although we’re not putting a city on our STDs at all.

    Put the specific info on your website. People never seem to remember that stuff anyway. 🙂

    We’re in the same situation as you(reception, ceremony, and hotels all in different adjacent towns) and we put down the ceremony location on our save-the-dates.

    I’d put Philly.  Then people would know the general area for thinking about travel (train/plane/driving/etc)  Then when you do the invitations, you can just include the specifics.  And then also include the specifics on your website.  That should cover everything.

    Are most of your guests OOT, or familiar with the area?  If it’s the former, I’d say use “Philly” to simplify things; if it’s the latter, go ahead and specify whichever exact town you really want to use — locals know the ‘burbs, I think!

    For something as general as STDs I’d say Philadelphia. Your OOT guests probably won’t know where Bryn Mawr is, but they will know where Philly is. At least it gives them an idea of where the wedding will take place. You can go into details later — on your website, like you said, and on your invites.

    I’d put Bryn Mawr (where I went to college, BTW — awesome town!).  I’m getting married in Media and that’s what I put on the save-the-date.  Honestly, it’s not that difficult to google a town if you really want to know where it is, and I’d be disappointed as an OOT guest if I thought the wedding was in the city and then found out it was in the ‘burbs.  While I love the Main Line, it’s not quite as hopping as Philly…and when it comes to travel, if I was flying in and the wedding was in Philly, I wouldn’t bother looking for a rental car, whereas I might want to do it for a suburban venue.  I know the train runs to Bryn Mawr, but I don’t ever trust SEPTA…

    I was in the same situation where i’m getting married in a suburb of Indianapolis. I just put Indinapolis so that ALL guests would know the general location. I don’t think that you need to get too specific on the STDs, especially if you are having out of town guests who may not be familiar with the near-by towns.

    I’d do Philly for the STDs, but also have a wedsite URL on the STD, and put the specific locations on the wedsite.

    I’d put the ceremony location. As you said, the larger city might scare some people because they could think it’s cost-prohibitive.

    I would put both the name of the ceremony town and the reception town on your STD if you have room (if not, put the ceremony).
