Which Info Card Is Better?

Go with the first card, add the line about the block of rooms, take off the line about attire, they can go the website for that. On the second card, the date isn’t centered properly. Also you might should suggest that the text be in one (darker) color. Having received several lilac/grey/light invitation texts recently, they can be super hard to read printed. I went with black for that reason. If you go with the second card, check the wording – it should probably be “for information on hotel accomodations, attire, and directions, please…”

No need to say anything about attire, as that would be rude.  I prefer the first card, though, because it gives more information right there.  Not all guests are going to be tech savvy.

We did a double-sided info card. it was 4×6 (the actual invitation was 5×7). One side was a large map with icons for our different locations (hotel, ceremony, reception), and different  landmarks (the arch, zoo). Under the map we had “for more information, including travel, accommodations, and things to do, please visit our wedding website at blah.com”. The reverse was direction the the ceremony (from the east and west), and to the reception (from the xefemony (aka east) and the hotel (aka west)).

I like the first better. Not everyone will be tech savy. Or they will do what I do and plan to visit the website at some point, never do it, grab the direction card on the way out the door.

I agree with the first poster. Use the first draft, add the line about the hotel, and delete the attire suggestion. If you’d like, you can also delete the venue address and say: for information regarding attire and directions, please visit [website].

i don’t like the second draft because it seems kinda pointless to have something printed out as an info card when it pretty much only says to look at the website. Might as well out some key info on there (hotel) or not include a card at all.

purple_orchid:  Your info cards look great!  I like the first one since it provides the most info at a glance, rather than having to go to the website.  I agree with PPs with removing the attire line and adding the hotel reservation info as well.

I actually like the map and did the same thing since it gives an overview of where the venue is. BTW, I just wanted to say “hi!” to a local DMV bride and your venue is such a great location!
