mcatt19:  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 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.

mcatt19:  Directions…definitely not. Accomodations….is there a room block at the hotel your wedding is at? I’d still include that information.

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.
