I absolutely have to finalize my invitation order this week. FI’s mom wants us to include a separate insert with the wedding website on it so guests can be reminded of accommodations and travel info. I’m afraid that people will think we’re trying to push the registry. Did anyone include an accommodations card in their invitation suite? If so, did you list your website? Thanks everyone!

For Out of Town guests an accomodation card is very nice. Your invitation should have all pertinent info regarding your wedding. Instead of the card solely directing them to your WW, how about adding the hotel, airport info on the card? This way people don’t necessarily need to visit your WW to learn the details.

We got moo cards printed up and had “for more information about accomodations and other details please visit http://www.blahblahblah.com” I’m paraphrasing because I’m too lazy to go get one and look at it, but it was something along those lines. I think as long as your website isn’t all registry all day long you’re ok. A section for accommodations, info about you two, info about your city, and the registry at the end I think is ok. I disagree with @CurlyCue:
unless you’re having a very formal wedding (in which case traditional is the way to go) I think directing people to the website can take the place of all the extra cards. Otherwise why have the website? If all your info is in your invitation except the registry info, then adding the website just gives people the registry stuff. But if you’re sending them to the website in lieu of a bunch of inserts, I think it’s ok.

All my guests are from out of town, and there will be several events they’re invited to (rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony/reception, day-after brunch, etc) so its pretty mandatory for my invites

I just included a card directing guests to RSVP and find information on accomodations and directions on our wedding website.
We called or printed information for older relatives we know don’t use the internet.

@IndyBea: We’re going to include one. There’s also a note about our website on our rsvp card because I want people to know more about the meal options and it doesn’t all fit on the card.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it 🙂

We also had an info card with accommodations details and a link to our wedding website. Seems pretty common in many of the invitation suites I receive.

Thanks everyone. We decided to include an accommodations card with the WW listed. Thanks for responding – I feel much better now!

@IndyBea: Yes, we included an accomodations card in our invitations and it mentioned if you wanted more information or to book a room to visit our wedding website for details. Easy peasy.
