Leave out the registry card. It is impolite to inform people so directly where you are registered. Such information should be spread by word of mouth. Young people are savvy enough to use the internet to figure it out and the older folks are used to traditional practices of asking the parents of the couple where the couple is registered.

You don’t need a map unless something complicated it going on, like a lot of location switching or a confusing parking situation.

The invitation should say at the bottom something like: “Adult-Only Reception to Follow / Place”. And then you need to be clear on the envelope to list exactly who is invited (so never use things like the word “family”).

It depends on what’s common in your area. If people usually put the registry information in, go ahead. I agree that you can leave out the map. And the last wedding I went to that was adults only said “Respectfully, adult only reception” on the invites.

You could still include directions because some people do rely on the directions card. Traditionally the registry info shouldnt be sent with the actual invite.   For my invitations all I had was the actual invite itself and then one info card that had directions and all other necessary information. I didnt want to waste paper by making lots of inserts

If you are blocking hotel rooms in the area you can add an “accommodations” card.
