I never use the maps provided. I google it and then use my navigation system so I would say you don’t need it but that me.

I don’t plan on including a map and never expect one as a guest. If GPS and Yahoo Maps! don’t help someone, they can always call you or the venue. That’s my theory, anyway.

If it’s in Downtown madison… It would be a very good idea! It is far too easy to get lost!

(I want to bring back to live, then hang whoever designed those streets!)

Since your venue is in a busy/tricky location, it would probably be a good idea (although not necessary). I was in a similar situation to you and decided to include a map – I put it on a piece of translucent paper, which looked really pretty with the invite and made the map seem less impossing and the invite less cluttered somehow.

If its on the wedding website, I think you’re fine… Plus so many people just google/use GPSs … I think you’re fine!

I’d say you don’t need to print a map and directions if its just a normal Googlemap search.  However, I know some places (my venue for example Smile) are in more hidden locations and give you different directions to follow because Googlemap ones don’t work – then I’d include them.
