- Wedding: August 2012
Am I missing any important information that should be included on my information card? Is my directions okay or do you think it’s too much to read? Not sure if I can do anything about –doing a dry run Saturday — unless I can think of some shortcuts. Originally I had planned on adding fun things to do in DC the weekend of my wedding, cool restaurants, etc. — but I don’t think its neccessary since most of my guests are DMV natives. I think we have maybe 10 couples that are out of town. What are your thoughts? My brain is fried…
ETA: Is the order of information okay?
