Here is the detail card that my etsy designer came up with…we wanted a map with our ceremony/reception location…but also want the card to be useful to guests, so i asked to her include directions from each hotel that we have blocks of rooms at to the venue…
But…there is something about the card/map…It’s too crowded, or something. Do you have any suggestions?
OR do you think it is fine as is?

Too crowded! Can’t you do a flimsy paper insert with the map?

Cute detail card!
I think that you could shorten the wording a bit to free up some space. For example, instead of “Where ceremony and reception will take place,” just put “Ceremony & Reception.” I think you could also move the pictures up to the headings. So, I would put the bed pic next to the room block heading. That way, you only have the bed on there once, which will give you more spacing on the entire page.
Another idea would be to arrange the map horizontally. Have the ceremony and room block info spread along the top of the page, then the map, and directions under it? It may look less busy broken up that way.
Hopefully, I’m making at least a little sense 🙂

Good Idea about the Bed icons…
I am trying to get the designer to put the directions along the bottom, I’m thinking in two columns…but I haven’t heard back from her about it 🙁

personally i think the wedding location (ie glass symbol) should be #1 not #2 and change the hotels to #2 and #3
can the written directions be printed on the back maybe? reason being im a very visual person so i only need the map

Hmm…. maybe ask her is she can allign the ‘Direction text’ underneath the map to the left hand side? I think theres too much text on the right and this might even it out a bit.
I love your colours!

Originally, we just had the map on the card….but when we saw that it didn’t seem very functional, so we added directions so guests could take this card with them as they went from their hotel to the ceremony…

@ b_tamara — that’s a great idea!

I agree with B_Tamara..
Definitely heavy on the right. But i like the idea of the map going straight to the top!
