Ok so this may not be a crisis outside of the wedding bubble that we are in but I need your help ladies! My invitaions were DIY and went out the other day. My guests have started to receive them and we forgot to include the reception information on the invitation, but we did include a map. So our guests might be a bit confused. The people closest to us know that there is a reception but I am worried about those who are not in our imediate circle.
Should I send out another special reception card? What would it have on it since there was a map in the invitations? Or should I just put it on the website and answer the calls as they come in?
Please help I would like to be able to send out something asap!

i think since you already sent out the invites, maybe you should have everyone call you with their responses. just put a note on the website and have people call you or you can have people respond on the website.

Hi! No need to fret! My friend did the same thing! Here is what she did: She covered all basis by emailing, posting on website AND sending a very simple and brief notice of the mistake. Even to just print out the details on simple cardstock was sufficient to inform the guests. :o)

I would email the ones you know check their email in addition to posting on the website.
I would call the ones who are not totally email savvy (even though they do email) That way you know you got everyone covered but hopefully don’t have to spend a lot of time chatting. I’d try to call home during a weekday so you can get the machine.

I think that if you did direct them to your website on the invites sent out mentioning it on the site and talking to them over the phone should be sufficient. I’m sure people who are unsure will call and ask you or your folks? Word of mouth, ya know?
Best of luck and I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Thanks for the support, its nice to know that Im not the only crazy person out there. I think what we may do is add a page to our website that lists reception info and once the RSVP’s start coming back in we can send out a note that says "we are so glad that you can make it and we look forward to seeing you! Please join us for dinner and dancing imeditly following the ceremony at …"
If we do it that way does it make it seem like we meant to do it?

I thnk if you send out a card, it will seem like you forgot. But I’m not sure you can avoid looking like you forgot. Either an email or a card will alert your guests to that fact.
I don’t think it’s a big issue, and you shouldn’t worry. If you provide the address on yours website, the majority of people will get it from there. You can also provide it at the ceremony with maps/diretions (everyone always forgets to bring theirs!)
I understand your concern…I almost forget the address as well, but caught it before final printing!
