seems okay to me. Do you need to put a map or directions? or you pretty sure that most guests know where it is?

That’s what I did.  Invite with ceremony info, reception card with reception info and website address.  Then we’re a little different because we had to provide tickets to the show garden we’re getting married in, and they had a map/directions printed on them.

Our setup is just like yours, and I think it’ll work! Invite with the ceremony info & official wording, reception card and RSVP.  Our reception card says the following (maybe it’ll help!)

Please join us to celebrate!

Dinner and dancing will immediately follow the ceremony. 

[Place/address]

For accommodations, directions, and more information, please visit [website]

but what about ppl that dont have access to the internet? what about your grandparents? i am a techy person but i still dont agree with refering everyone to your website for more information….

my family is from red neck city and they dont have internet….please try and think of your guests if you decide to do this. for some people this works just fine but for some guests lists it does not. 

for my guest list i had to include everything on paper..no referring to website for all info because 30% of guests can not get to the site 😀

just a thought…

I think you could put your reception address on the main invite, and then reserve the insert for directions, accomodations, and your website info.

I would just do the reception card and then on that also say “for accommodations, directions, and a map please visit our wedding website at”

If you are going to make an additional insert for a map, I would recommend against it. This day-in-age, with GPS and iPhones, people will be able to find the places given the name and the address.

What I recommend is making a “My Map” on Google maps. You can actually create a map (using icons, or “pushpins”) to mark on a map where certain things are. Especially if people are coming in from out-of-town, this is a great way to recommend some location things to do, and even add in a personal story about that location.

For our wedding, we are having many people travel to Seattle for our wedding, so we are using it to share with our guests our favorite places, and recommendations for our visitors. We haven’t completed it yet so we haven’t shared it, but we are looking forward to sharing it with our guests!

My reception is also at a different location but I didn’t include it in the invitation. I’m goin to add it in the program, I’m gonna put a map with directions in programs because I’ve told almost everyone it was at a different location.
