I’m in the process of ordering my invitations from Wedding Paper Divas. I’m tempted to skip the cards with directions and accommodation information. I’m getting married in my small hometown, so while my friends are scattered all over the world, we all grew up in the same town and their parents still live there, so they definitely don’t need directions.
My fiance’s family is from fairly close by — 1 hour away, tops. I know most of them know how to get to my town, and the hotel where the wedding is literally the biggest, most hard-to-miss building in town.
Also, we sent out Save the Dates in February (6 months from wedding day) with our wedding website, which has maps, directions, and lodging info (details on how to receive the discount rate).
So… is it necessary to add two separate enclosures to the invites? One with directions, one with hotel info?

I don’t think it is necessary as long as the information is included on your website. I would say something like… For more details including accomodations and directions, please visit our website http://www…..

Definitely not necessary IMO. Most guests will know to look at your wedding website for that information and those who do not will figure it out!

I agree you can put that info on the wedding website.

Since half of our guests are from out of town, we put accommodations info on the back of the invitation. It’s not a formal invitation, so we didn’t really care that it wasn’t the ‘right’ way to do it. We did not include any directions.
Our wedding website, which was mentioned at the bottom of our invitation (‘For more information, visit yourwebsite(dot)com’), included a button to click to get directions as well as reiterated the accommodation information.

Directions…definitely not. Accomodations….is there a room block at the hotel your wedding is at? I’d still include that information.

Yes, there are 30 rooms reserved at a discount, though I highly doubt we’ll use more than 10. The only people staying the night are the groom’s parents, and a few members of the wedding party (who live only 30ish minutes away, but want to stay and party). The only real “out of towner” is my Maid/Matron of Honor, who already booked her room.

You can do an enclosure, do a separate mailing with the information, and or include it on the wedding website. In your case, I’d say an enclosure is not necessary.

I don’t know if it is the “correct” thing to do, but I just added a card that said something to the effect of “for more information, including accomodations and directions, please visit our wedding website” with the website on it, of course. If you don’t want to add any enclosures, maybe you can just add that somewhere on your invitation? I don’t think seperate cards are necessary at all, as long as you direct them to the wedding webiste.

We created our own direction cards, and that was just for those who were invited to the ceremony – so they knew where to park and where to go in the park (we got married in a Gazebo).
We did have an Information insert with our invitation suite. This included hotel information, our wedding website, and registry info. We felt that was enough for that.
