rrweddingday15: I wouldn’t worry about it. No PTO necessary. Did you send out save the dates with city and state?

I would re-print them, just because some older people may not have a computer. Those are beautiful btw

It happens! I sent out our rehearsal dinner invites/cocktail party night before invites with no date on them. That was funny. I just ended up sending out another piece of mail to add some humor to it that I know everyone is going to really enjoy and laugh at. Do whatever you think is best!

It looks like you have room to add the city and state under the address, so I would do that if you feel you can get everything lined up propertly on your printer (maybe do a test on a piece of regular paper- print exactly what you have now and then try to print just the city/state in the right place)

I would want to redo the invitations, personally. I would not advise doing them this far ahead, though. 

I have actually never heard of or seen “PTO” used on a wedding insert  and wouldn’t use it here in any case. I really don’t think your guests will miss seeing the map on the other side. If you have a wedding website you can include this information there as well.

I second the idea of inserting a new card with the map face up, as I think many people will naturally turn it over. When I see “PTO” I think “paid time off,” not “please turn over.” Maybe that means I need a vacation?

RedHairing:  I thought the same thing!!! PTO= paid time off. Hilarious. I’ve never heard it used for Please turn over. 

I would not reprint. I usually forget the invitation at home anyways. If you’re that concerned, print a map with full address & as PPs have suggested, face it up in the envelope. People will figure it out.

PTO is what grade 5 girls write to each other on passed notes in class.  If you were insistant “-over- “would be at least clear what people were supposed to do.

PTO doesn’t meant anything.

I wouldn’t stress about the city and state.  Presumably those invited will be people with whom you have regular contact.  Just tell them about the city as you speak to them naturally.

rrweddingday15: not sure how formal your wedding is, but an abbreviation is not very formal. I would not have figured out PTO is please turn over if you hadn’t spelled it out. I kept thinking paid time off — very confusing. 

Don’t reprint. Print a separate map insert if needed.

Even my grandma has an iPad and has a FB. Im sure even the older people can google. No need to reprint.

I wouldn’t reprint! People can check your wedding website for the details. We’re having a reception at a park pavilion and I forgot the site # on the invite! Buuuut, hopefully it all works out 🙂
