Okay, I want to mail out my out of town invites this week, we do have some older guests coming, but they use computers, have facebooks stuff like that.
Our wedding website is on the back of our reception card, so one would have to flip it over to see the website.
Do most people flip over cards to see the back? My biggest fear is people not seeing the wedding website and not knowing what hotels we used for blocks. Should I add an insert with hotel/registry info or just hotel info for all the guests or the older guests, or just hope people see the back of the reception card.
What would you do???

I honestly would probably miss it. Maybe you could add just hotel info for the Out of Town guests

I think ideally I would have put the wedding website on the front of the reception card somewhere, but maybe I’m biased because that’s what I did for mine.
I just think maybe I wouldn’t turn over a card to check for more information. Someone recently sent us a Save the Date that was double sided and we didn’t notice right away either! But if people start to wonder where that information is then maybe they’ll look again and notice it if they didn’t right away.

We have an insert that has the addresses to the ceremony, reception, and then our wedding website… it says for hotel and accomidations go to our website blablabla. But I know that when i get an invitation to a wedding I look at the back just to look. Like the back of our invites and reception cards have a very pretty design so I look at the back when other ppl send stuff. I would assume most people do or maybe its just me haha

Never assume people will see the back. We had save the dates with a picture on one side ( full side, in color… with SAVE THE DATE written over it) and then on the back we put words with the website and formal invitation to follow. My cousin only saw the white side with words, and never managed to flip it over to see the picture.

I actually just thought to flip the reception card over so the website is first. (I thought of it the second I said, “anyone?”) The other side of the reception card is really decorated, so even if they miss it, it’ll be on the website. As for the older guests, I counted and it’s only 5 of 65 invites, so if anything they will just call to ask 🙂
Suddenly doing these invites makes me feel like I’m totally screwing up. It took me 2.5 hours to print the envelopes and stamp/label the RSVP cards and I don’t feel like that was long enough! Lol Thanks for your input
That’s what I thought! The back of the card is just empty space, and I felt bad leaving it blank. Every invite I get is flipped over and looked because it’s seems natural. But, I don’t want to assume everyone does it.
