Woah, very thorough. I really don’t think there’s anything else that could fit on there!

The only thing I’ve seen that isn’t on here is a link to a wedding website. For the sake of being concise, you might look into getting a website and putting directions up there, then just include info about parking, addresses, times, and accommodations on the card. But if it can all fit…hey, go for it.

P.S. Marriott should be spelled with 2 t’s.

I did not proofread your entire document. However, under accommodations, your text should read “a block of rooms has been reserved” not “have,” since “block” is a singular noun.  If you’re uncomfortable with making this change, another way to correct this would be to remove the reference to “a block” and simply say, “Rooms have been reserved …”

@HueysLuda:  It’s up to you, since you’ll know your guest list best. If you know there are a lot of people attending who aren’t computer savvy, it may be a good idea to include all the information. My fiance and I actually didn’t even make a website. We just put the addresses and venue phone numbers, assuming that most people use Google maps and GPS these days (plus we’re getting married near our home town, so a lot of guests know their way around town already).

@HueysLuda: Have you thought about leaving directions off but including a map with ceremony, reception, and accommodations markers? It could be printed on cardstock as an insert or printed on the back of the info cards. I went to one wedding where they just printed maps with markers for locations, then highlighted the routes between sites and tucked them inside their card pockets. If you don’t want a Google maps screenshot, there are a lot of wedding map designers on Etsy. It just depends on whether you prefer text directions or something more visual.

Will you hand out Out of Town bags to guests staying at the hotel you coupld place a msp or small card inside the bag for the guests to navigate thru Georgetown.

I directed guests to our wedding webite with the directions to the venue/reception.

this is a little clunky: “Dinner and dancing will immediately follow cocktail hour, which starts promptly at 6pm at Sequoia Restaurant, Georgetown Harbour at 3000 K Street Northwest Washington, DC 20007.”

how about “Cocktail hour starts promptly at 6pm at Sequoia Restaurant, Georgetown Harbour at 3000 K Street Northwest Washington, DC 20007. Dinner and dancing to immediately follow.”

or something like that?

Hi, you used the incorrect “complement”- to say free parking, it is “complimentary.”
