Hey Bees! Hope you’re having a great day. So, we are doing very formal, engraved invitations, and thus want to keep the wording very traditional… However, I am seeing that proper etiquette dictates you do NOT list the address of the ceremony venue (in our case a church), simply the name and city/state. I want to stick with whatever is most formal, but just seems sort of strange… (We are not doing direction cards.) What do you think?

Def. put the address- older people will not google the church and find the address. Unless you put a directions card in there with specefic address- I would add it in.

I didn’t put my address on my invites and didn’t include a registry card.
We’re including directions in out of town bags at the hotel and on my website. People will definitely google the place if they’re from out of town and if they’re local, they’ll know it anyways. Normally grandparents don’t come by themselves anyways.

add the address it is possible that there is more than one – St. X church in the area (could be another denomination you don’t know about )

We did very formal invites and did not put the address of the church on them (just the name and city). Most people know how to google the address and if an older guest doesn’t, then they can call the you/your parents/FI’s parents and ask for the address.

I had no idea that was a rule for formal invites (since ours are fairly casual).
What’s the rationale for that? My thought as we designed the invites (from the guest side as well as from the planning) was that I want to make traveling there as painless as possible for my guests. Why wouldn’t I want to include that information? :

We had medium-formal invitations, and we definitely put the address for the ceremony location. In the invite suite, we included another card with the name and address of the reception venue, along with directions from the church to the reception. We’ll have extra copies of that card in the back of the church in case people forget to bring them.
I would say, guests appreciate consideration, which means including helpful information such as the address.
