You definitely have the basics down.  As for anything additional, a lot depends on your specific wedding.  

Are your ceremony and reception in the same place? If not, you may need a reception card. 

Are you having a lot of out of towners or is your venue off the rader?  You may need a directions card and/or and accomodations card. 

Do you plan to put all this info on a website?  You may just need a Guest Info card.

The important thing to keep in my when planning your invitations is what info will your guests need.  When and where is just the begninng.  Your wording and style of your invite will also tell your guests what to wear and the style of your wedding, which in some circles also dictates the type of gift you receive. 

Good luck!  The decisions about my invites were the hardest of my entire wedding process!

I ordered my invites and reply cards from 123print.  I had them print our return address on the back of the reply card to be used as a postcard in order to save money on stamps…just an idea…

@furtureffcaptwife:  Well I am starting to get really stressed out, it sounds like I am really behind. Someone was going to make all paper stuff for us, The STD’s we’re done from one day to another and were beautiful, so invitations were all the way in the back back back of my mind. We were just told that we were on our own for invitations and then my room started to spin. I know invitations take a lot of time, selecting a design, editing, and all the other little things that go with them. They were the one thing that my OCD hadn’t touched and now I am overwhelmed. I just looked at 123 and wow, thanks for this post because I had looked into Vistaprint and they aren’t this cheap. I am more interested in that idea that you had “I had them print our return address on the back of the reply card to be used as a postcard in order to save money on stamps”. Did you do that so that you didn’t have to provide a stamp on the RSVP envelope and your RSVPier will be stamping it?

stay away from the words “allergy”. if youre senstive to allergies, EVENT DATE, i would just have a menu that has items starred that are w/ peanuts, gluten, etc. i think that’s Too Much Information w/the invitation.
