I need some opinions.
Fiance is British and we are getting married in the UK. I am working on wedding invites for the US guests. At first I had created a draft(online) for an “information” card with details of a hotel who is giving us a discount code and also airlines that fly direct to London, ect. Then I thought it would be easier to build a website that had much more information, about the whole trip, traveling in the UK, ect. So I made the website. Then I figured, whats the point of an information card if we have a website?
We are trying to save money. So I’m trying to figure out how to include the website. I don’t want to put the website link on the actual invite. I was thinking of having some small cards made that just had a little note and a website link on them. Hopefully, these would turn out to be a bit cheaper. I’m using Wedding Paper Divas for my invites but I was thinking of getting the website cards made elsewhere.
What do you think of this idea? Is it acceptable to leave out an information card for an international wedding, and have a website card instead? The only people on my invite list who don’t have a computer are my grandparents, and I can easily give them information myself/help them out with flights and hotels. Also, about half the people I’m inviting probably can’t go to the wedding because of the distance/cost, so I’m really trying to save some money on these invites because a lot of them are just going to be disregarded.
Does anyone know of a website that does small cards for a wedding website link to be printed on? I am using “folding envelopes” so they can’t be too small or they would hide in the envelope!
I don’t mean to sound cheap but we have thousands of $$ in visa fees and plane tickets to pay for before I can even arrive in the UK to get married!

I guess we are just cheap because we’re simply directing our guests to our website as it has ALL the information on it. On the invite it will say, “For more information regarding lodging and flights, please visit….” It’s too expensive and too much hassle to include an additional information card. We also have a lot of computer illiterate people but we just hope they can get people to help them or we will follow up with the few who don’t visit the website. Hope that helps!

@sharkchomp: I agree. I don’t understand why you wouldn’t include it on the invite.

We had small cards included in our invites that basically said “For more information please go to …” With the invites I chose(they folded out into a beach chair) there wasn’t enough room on the invite to include website info.

@jenny001: we had a one-page invitation that had the announcement, date, time, place of ceremony and reception on it. then right on the bottom as the very last line was our website address. then our website had *all* the information and more that the guests would need. but if you still want to use a separate “smaller” card for the website address, then vistaprint.com offers those free 100 (or is it 250?) business cards. you can probably use those. i’m not 100% sure it’s still free, but it was when we were preparing for our wedding.

I just did a small card that said “For Directions, Accomodations and other Guest Information please visit…” and then our website information. All of our guests will be from out of town so it was easier to put all the information we needed them to have on the website and then direct them there.

@ jenny001: We have a 8 pages passport invitation and still dont do information card, just because that will be too much, so I just direct them to our website. This is our wording:
