Do you have a website? If so, it just direct people to the website and you can put the info there. I think it is nice to let people know if they’re going to be invited to something, and that way you won’t need to maje sure that everyone knows on wedding day when you’ve got a million other things on their mind. Now, if you’re hoping people won’t come then you could not put it on the invite and conveniently forget to mention it to people…. as long as that won’t piss off your Mother-In-Law.

We’re putting most of our info on our website, so our info card is really small and just says “For more information, including accommodations and directions, please visit our website: _____”.  I think it depends on your invitee crowd. Are most of them techy enough that they’ll actually GO to the website? If yes, they’ll prob browse all the tabs you have there.

I would suggest limiting the information in your formal invitation. It can end up being overwhelming and cluttered. You can have an insert containing specific info to help your guests plan their weekend and get them to check your website for further details (including ferry reservations, maps, hotels, weather report, must-see/must-do while in the area, dress code, full/detailed itinerary of the weekend, venue information).

Example: The Weekend at a Glance

Jan 1 Friday 

Welcome cocktails for out of town guests

Venue

Time

 

Jan 2 Saturday

The wedding celebration of Mickey and Minnie

Venue

Time

 

Jan 3 Sunday

Send-off brunch and gift-opening

Venue

Time

 

For more information including travel and acommodation, and to RSVP to these events, pls visit our website: http://www.xxx.com.

 

I would suggest putting down a phone number for those who are not so tech savy.

I would go the route of directing everyone to your wedding website for information and accommodations…I’m sure they’ll stumble on it.

but…first, WTF is a “gift opening”, like people are going to come to her house the day after the wedding (yourself included, even though you’ll be exhausted) to watch you open gifts, including cards that have cash?  I’ve never heard of that, I was interested in hearing more, although I know you said you didn’t want to get into it.  Just curious.

More so, if your Mother-In-Law is hosting this “gift-opening”, shouldn’t it be her responsibility to invite people to it, instead of you having to crowd up your information card or website?

@QBbride:  Yeah I would definitely think it was super awkward, especially when you go through cash/check gifts.  It just seems superfulous and unnecessary…especially since on that day, you should be RELAXING and relishing in the fact that you’re married and don’t have to worry about planning a wedding anymore!! I know it’s off-topic, but I would maybe say something to her about it?  I do especially think that she should facilitate her own invites if she really wants people to come.  If it’s important to ONLY her that she see you open gifts, maybe you could suggest a late lunch/cocktail time gathering for just your family and your in laws to kinda re-hash the wedding and open some gifts.  No reason to bring other people into that, but that’s just my two cents (which you didnt ask for, sorry….i’m constantly dealing with my own Future Mother-In-Law craziness and difficulties so these thinsg in particular get a HUGE eye roll from me!)
