    @Mercy2250:  Personally, I wouldn’t be bothered by this, but I’m not really super familiar with etiquette. I usually just kind of go with my instincts! 🙂

    If you are going for elegance, then remember the aesthetic maxim “less is more”, and avoid anything that looks commercial or makes your invitation look more like a convention registration package.

    I imagine that modern adult guests are more than capable of finding a hotel convenient to the ceremony site and registering in it without having their hands held. Those who do need hand-holding most likely have travel agents. Trust the competence of your guests; avoid patronizing them.

    @Mercy2250:  We included an insert with rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception locations as well as the address of our wedding website.  I had it printed on a pale ‘speckled’ blue cardstock at FedEx Kinkos, since our invitation paper was a creamy ivory and I wasn’t about to try and match that 😛  The insert was approximately the same size as our RSVP cards, so I just tucked it behind the RSVP envelope.  I don’t think it’s ‘tacky’ at all, it’s helpful!  That said, I would probably not include rates – since any discussion of money is going to rub *someone* the wrong way – so maybe just hotel names, addresses, contact info, and how to request the wedding block (if there is one)?

    @Mercy2250:  Our invitations looked like this:

    We included a notecard sized insert (3″ x 5″) that was a legal pad yellowish color that had our host hotel information, rates, and parking information. We also included our website (instead of saying where we were registered). I made it a bright yellow color to make it stand out. I didn’t want it to blend with the ivory invitations. 

    My logic was based on someone losing the invitation and if nothing else, they can probably find that yellow card with all of the pertinent information. Everything they need to know is actually on the website and if all else fails, they can RSVP on the website. 

    I had them printed on stock paper. I went to Fedex/Kinkos and they printed 70 of them for $3.25 total. Go with professional printing on heavier paper.
