    I’d say put both. Have it say something like ceremony in Town A with reception to follow in Town B.

    @cmbr:  Oh, I see. Well, then I’d go with Town A since that’s where people have to start out. They may as well figure out where it is now.

    I think it depends, are your guests out of town people or local? If the majority of your guests don’t know the area at all, I would say just use the bigger town, that way they get kind of an idea of where it is.  If it’s local and people would generally recognize the smaller place, that might make more sense.

    I honestly don’t see the need to put a location unless it’s a destination wedding. The address will be on the invites anyways. So if you can’t put both locations, I wouldn’t put any…

    I think most people would prefer to stay closer to the reception than the ceremony, so I’d put the reception location just in case they start looking at hotels

    Could you put something that encompasses both?  Like the three small cities in our area are known as the Tri-Cities, or if it were a greater distance I’d put Southwest Michigan and then refer them to your wedding website for more specifics.

    I would pick the city more people would recognize. When I get it in the mail, I need to know if I’m going to Chicago or California or Maine! When they get the invite, they’ll have specific information about locations.
