I’m DIY letterpressing my invitations and I was planing on having a map that showed directions between the church and the reception site included in the invitation. The two locations are about 4 miles apart but there are a couple of routes one can take and none are the obvious choice for the best route.
Alternitavly, I can not include it and just have a printed map that is handed out at the wedding.
I suspect that not many people will actually use the map and will instead rely on GPS.
Is it still best to include a map as part of the invitiaton suite or save my time and money and not letterpress that part of the invitation.

Our reception is about 25 mins away from the ceremony. I will be putting a map on our wedding website. I figured all our guests have access to the internet and will be able to access directions on their own.

I think a map is nice as they may not be able to find the ceremony site in the first place, so how would they get the map with the directions to the recpetion site? I also like PP suggestion of having it on the website, or maybe just assuming people can read the zip/postal code on the invite if you know they all have access to the internet.

Not all GPS systems are 100% reliable 100% of the time. Not all older guests are going to bother accessing the internet. I don’t think a map is necessary per se, but written directions with mileage between turn offs would be very helpful.

Thank you for the advice! I think I’ll include the map, I think it looks nicer that way and I’ll also be able to show where parking is available for the church. Probably better all around!
