We’re having a welcome/rehearsal dinner for our out-of-town guests and family/bridal party. Most people are invited, except for some of my parents’ friends, who live in the city where we’re having the wedding. Should we put the details of the welcome dinner on our wedding website? There will be a trolley service to/from the hotel to the restaurant, and I want guests to be able to plan for the dinner. But I don’t want to offend the locals that aren’t invited! How have others handled?

I’d say no. If your parents friends see the website they’ll probably assume they’re invited. So there could be some unexpected guests. Or else they could just assume they’re not invited which may offend them. I’d send out a physical invitation (much less formal that the wedding invite) to the folks you want to come.

I’m with @jennifer_espos. Send a separate invitation or people will be all confused. My brother did exactly what you are proposing and no one understood who was invited and who was not. ALso, SO many people don’t even look at the website no matter how many times you tell them there is important information there…

No, don’t include it on the website. It will make the in town folks feel left out.
Send the info in a separately – or, have another insert you can put in the Out of Town invites.
