For mine we had

Invitation – the main thing

A reception card- where the reception was, as it wasnt immediatly after the ceremony

Map

RSVP card – The rsvp card wasnt one you sent back. it had details of who to email and phone if you were attending. We couldnt afford in our budget to pay for extra postage. It wouldve been another $100.00

Accomodation card – this was sent to out of town guests providing information of where we had confirmed a booking rate and also a website for accomodation in our city if they didnt like the price so they could find something else.

That was it 🙂

I’m just doing maps with my replies and invites, but I know a lot of people do a reception card  as well as accomodation cards. 

I did a wedding website because I didn’t want to have to answer the same questions over and over again. I’m using mywedding.com. Was pretty easy and didn’t take that much time. lol. Not any more time than hanging out on weddingbee all day. haha.

Oh yeah, if you DO end up doing a wedding website you can do one where you have people rsvp on the wedding website. That could cut down on postage costs.

@Statutory Grape: That is one reason I would do a wedding website. You can throw that info up there and have people go on and look at it instead of having to do all kinds of cards and things. People throw them away half the time anyway.

We had:

5×7 invitation with A7 envelope

3.5×5 RSVP card with 4Bar envelope

4×5 Reception card (separate venues)

4×6 double sided card with map, directions & hotel block info.

belly band with wax seal to hold it all together.

 

Alternately you could have a smaller card with the website info but we didn’t make a website so we included everything in the invitaiton.

@Statutory Grape: Just make sure it’s thick enough and the right size dimensions to qualify as a postcard.  Check the USPS website.  I believe postcard postage is only 29 cents or something (postage is going up in the spring).  I didn’t think that postage was too outrageous.  The frustrating thing is being out the money and still having no one send back the reply card!

@Statutory Grape: Lol I don’t know if they’ll look at mine either to be honest.
