I wouldn’t put anything about it on the invitation. I would simply provide hotels that are in the area (are you doing a hotel room block? That should be included) and then if people ask to stay, you can politely turn them down. Honestly, I would be very surprised if anyone asked to stay with you! You’re getting married, so hopefully everyone will respect that you’ll be too busy to entertain guests at your home too!

You do an additional card with the invitation suite. It can have a map on one side, and on the other, information directing them to your website/email addressses and travel info like where you block hotel rooms for them.

If people ask or assume they are staying with you, put the word out that things are going to be hectic and you will simply not be able to accomodate and then redirect them again to the hotels you’ve made arrangements with.

If you have a bridal party/MOB to help spread this info, all the better.

A hotel insert may help, but you’ll still have people ask you if they may stay over.  Be firm but polite that you are hosting the wedding at your home and you simply don’t have room to entertain hosting any guests as well.

I would be surprised if people did ask to stay with you.  I mean, they understand the concept of the wedding night right?  Day-after-wedding morning could be awk-ward!
