I would personally do two STD’s.  One for the “weekend” guests and one for the “wedding only” guests.  However, I would make the Inn information available to all guests (if possible/there’s enough room) for the night of the wedding.  I attend some weddings in my hometown and still opt to stay the night many times so my FI/I don’t have to worry about driving and/or can party longer with some friends we don’t get to see as often. 

Also, unless you are paying (and want to clarify that on the STD), I would make sure you just provide the info on the STD’s…not say people HAVE to stay the night Friday and Saturday. 

Sounds like your wedding weekend will be a blast!!

@icetea:  Hi lady, I’m back!  I’m an event (seminar) planner in the career world so I’m all about laying things out from the get-go to avoid confusion.  However, it’s also common to wait until closer to the wedding to do a rehearsal dinner invite, as well as the wedding invitations, with specific details. 

So for wording for the weekend-long guests, I would do something along the lines of:

Save the Dates!

Miss icetea & Mr. icetea are getting married!

You are invited to an inclusive weekend of wedding filled activities @ Location!

Friday Night – Rehearsal & Dinner

Saturday – Wedding

Sunday Morning – Brunch

(smaller font size) Accomodations: Miss icetea & Mr. icetea are renting out Location for their guests to stay Friday & Saturday nights. 

We hope you can join us for the entire weekend filled of love, laughter and marriage! 

You may still get some questions on if they will need to pay for the rooms, etc., but when you send out actual invitations you can specify a lot more details.  This at least tells them which days/time of days to save.

Just my two cents!  Take as you will! 🙂

I think you should do one STD, but include a typed letter to those who you want staying and inclose it in with it. We did something similiar where we inclosed the hotel info in with the STD for those we knew were traveling far so they knew there was rooms saved for them. Just an idea!
