I was wondering how to give my guest info on hotel discounts with the code. I was debating to put it with my save the date magnet like wrap the magnet in the piece of paper with the hotel info or just put it on my wedding site but I was just wondering if maybe people won’t go on the site it or maybe they don’t have a comp (yes some of my family don’t have comps) does it look bad to give them info with the magnet. thanks for your help….

You could put the info on the website, and then for your invitations (rather than STDs), include that you have blocked off rooms at the hotel on the info card.

We did what fiftyfootbride suggests. So far, it is working out fine. Not a lot of people go to the website right away, I discovered, but lots of them have asked where they should stay, so then I tell them to check the website and they look at everything. As long as you include the info in your invitations as well, they will have plenty of notice to book the hotel.

I’d hate for you to distract from your pretty save-the-dates with a discount code. Regardless of whether it’s tacky (which I’m not sure it is), it will distract from your design/date. I’d go with fiftyfootbride on this one.

I’m not sure about tacky, but I would worry your STDs are just going to get a little too wordy.
Wedding websites are a great place for lots of info, and you can keep them up to date (whereas a STD goes out once and that’s it) as deadlines approach, etc.
Seems like folks lose a lot of info, so having it all online in one place seems to be the simplest option.

Because we’re having lots of family come in from the UK, we’re mailing our invites super early. In our invites we have a 2 sided direction card. One side is directions to our venue, the other is all the hotel blocked room information with coding, special pricing and date to “get the special price by”.
We thought about putting the hotel info on the STDs but thought besides wordy, it might confuse guests…we didn’t want them to think we were getting married at the hotel.

I’ve always seen hotel info included as an extra card. Like, totally separate, but in the invitation packet. This way if you want it, you have it. I say include it…it’s just pratical =]

I am a little confused about why you would put it on the STD anyway. I thought that information got included with the invitation when they went out.

Usually you put in on the wedding website and on on insert with the invitations.

thanks for all your advice, i wasn’t gonna put it on the actual magnet it was gonna be on a seperate sheet of paper, but i do like the idea of putting it with the actual invitation, and if people don’t look at the web site and book a hotel before the invitation goes out with the hotel info i guess they can always cancel there reservations and book the discounted hotel.

I’d go ahead and put it with the invitation. People frequently wait a long time to reserve hotels anyway, and they might forget if it just goes out with the STD!

There may be guests who are unable to visit your website, i.e. the older guests. So if possible, I would also include an “Accommodations” insert with your invites or save-the-dates. This way every guest has access to the information.

I will be assuming that my older guests won’t be getting online to get much of the information, so I will plan accordingly to keep them informed.

I put an insert in with my invitations and did not put it with my STDs-however, this is an encore wedding, so almost everyone who is invited is a friend of mine or Fiance so they already knew about the wedding. If this was my first wedding and alot of the friends were my parent’s and FIs parents, and coming from out of town &/or I was having a destination wedding-I would probably put them on my website and find some type of way to send them out earlier than my invites. I’m not sure on this one-

I’d have my wedding party start the talking about it so that it could circulate to everone…
