I would definitely use a wedding website & word of mouth to let everyond know. But if you’re really against them (they really are a great way to communicate info, my grandma gets on ours all the time) then  I guess its ok to put it on your save the date. I would maybe do a bigger save the date since you have zo much info on there. Generally you just see city, state & maybe website. Maybe 5×7?? Or if its double sided then 4×6?

Typically hotel block information doesn’t go on the STD…it goes in the invitation. Usually on a STD the only information you need is the day you are getting married, the city and state of where the wedding is held, and a wedding website if you have one with “Invitation to follow” at the end of it. I don’t see how the 3 months would be up before the invitations go out? Usually hotels would make the room block expire like a a few weeks before the actual wedding date….Is there any way that you can talk to the hotel rep and see if they can extend that room block until at least the beginning of May like first or second week

I think it’s fine to include that info if you are dead set against a wedding website!

We said on ours

“Hotel accommodations and event information available at http://www.ourweddingwebsite.com

@BrookeBQ:  Honestly I don’t know any one in my family who has ever created a wedding website. I had only created one because there are some people in my family that don’t really know much about FH and vice versa and also because our invitations may match the wedding website…..on my wedding website I have our story because not everyone knows it, a little information about the both of us, where the ceremony/reception is held, information about the bridal party, registry information, common questions, and music request

 

If you have to put it on your STD then what you have is absolutely fine. I just never knew of a hotel to put a room block with an expiration date of 90 days before the wedding.

I think it’s fine to include the info, but I would definitely get a designer to do the save the dates

@BrookeBQ:  Wedding websites are extremely usefull.  On ours we put hotel, airport, taxi, etc. info for anyone that would need it.  Our registry info.  Our engagement story/pics.  Things to do and such for out of town guests.  The time and location of all events.   I also made up a printable info packet that had EVERYTHING guests would need to know for the wedding and put that on the site for guests to download and print off.  If you’d really like to see and example, message me and I can send you the link to our site.

Could you put the info on the back? I think it distracts a little bit from your pretty photo!

I agree with placing info on the back. I think it is fine to add that info.
