Do you have a wedding website? I am getting married in Mexico and I put together a website with some information about Mexico and booking rooms, etc. I put this website on the save the dates so that I didn’t have to include a ton of information on them. Hope this helps!!

When I made our passport Save the Dates for St. Thomas, I included average weather info, time zone info, and flight info.  You might want to include nearby Florida attractions, restaurants, other things to do outside of Disney if some people will be staying for a week or more– Universal, Sea World, etc.  OH… and you may want to warn them about the tolls if anyone will be driving.  Florida– Orlando in particular, lol– is FULL of tolls, so having cash handy is a must.

I did the same thing as @kitkat863, having a wedding website where guests can go to read all the information that’s needed is super helpful and everyone has loved it! I included the web address on our save the dates.

I put all info about the wedding on our wedding website and just put the date and place on the save the dates along with the web address.

On the site I put:

Hotel Info

Fight Info

Nearby Attractions

List of other events guests were invited to (Rehearsal Dinner & Day After Brunch)

That way the save the date could be a single card and all the info would be at the guests’ disposal on the website when they were ready to book.

@smiles4jo: I’m only having about 20 people come to mine and to be honest I’m not sure if people really looked at the site. I did it so that there would be a place with all of the information on there and the travel agent’s info but most people ended up asking me what the info was anyways. I could see how many views the site had but I was probably the majority of the views! I used shutterfly that way after the wedding people could upload their pics from the wedding on there and share. Hopefully people will do that since I will want pictures!
