I am writing to get advice about including an event going on in the community. I live in the Grand Rapids Michigan area and Grand Rapids host a huge Art Prize. It isn’t the traditional art show. Art is all over Grand Rapids and some are scupltures and exhibits and it is really cool.
I have guest that will be traveling and staying in a hotel. Most of them have heard or been to this art prize in previous years and have enjoyed it. But some have not or not even heard about it. It would make their travel a little more worth it. Art prize opening weekend is the weekend of my wedding. I was thinking about including on the hotel information card info about attending Art prize. Is this tacky? I was thinking something like the following. Please give advice
We have set aside a block of rooms at the whatever hotel for you.
Please call this number to book your room for September 21.
We understand that traveling for a wedding can be time consuming on your part and we thank you in advance for the willingness to travel to celebrate with us.
Grand Rapids Art prize will be going on the same time. We encourage you to visit this wonderful attraction on Sunday before you go home.

I don’t see anything wrong with it but I’m not very good with words sometimes. I’m more the type that would want to say.. Hey btw there is blah blah blah going on… if you have time check it out… which is essentially what you said but nicer 🙂
By The Way LOVE Grand Rapids… I worked there for a month about 10 years or so back… From the other side of the state as you !

Make sure to add a website that they can check out

I don’t see an issue with adding the information for it on your hotel card. We are doing something similar and including a short list of local places of interest that have relevance to my Fiance and I.

My cousin just did this on her website for wedding commingle up next month. Her ceremony is scheduled to end at 4pm and the reception doesn’t start until 6pm. Many are driving about 45 min so they don’t have a hotel and will need something to do. I would however suggest you try to point out things Rondo or places to visit that your guest will feel comfortable doing in the dress / attire they will be wearing if your situation is similar to hers. I honestly don’t feel too comfortable visiting her suggestions in the cocktail / semi formal attire I will be wearing. None of this takes away from me wanting to be there’s for her on her day though more would I trouble her over her extra effort and its all better than sitting in a Starbucks or bar for 2 hours.
