Actually, it is turning out to be a bit of a challenge for us. My mom has had a bunch of problems getting enough brochures from the tourist bureaus, because apparently with the economy in a downturn, museums and tourist attractions are trying to conserve brochures. We were trying to get 75 of them, and they’re trying to give them to us in batches. So yeah, I’d try to get them ASAP!

This site has pdf’s of various Philly maps you can download and print:

Remember that the hotel(s) where your guests are staying will also have tourist info and brochures for those that want them, so I wouldn’t load your Out of Town bags with a lot of extra paper that might not get used.

I found a lot of tourist information at the Reading Terminal, there’s a booth located at the right end of the market with all sorts of brochures.

instead of getting a million brochures from every tourist place, we got the spring/summer Philadelphia Official visitors guide (glossy magazine) from the Independence Visitors Center & a historic Gazette (which has a newspaper format with a great map on the back page). Both are free & have all the info a visitor could possibly use in a weekend (or more). I’d suggest contacting them ~4-6 weeks before your wedding date & they can get a packet together for you.
