    I would include a separate enclosure. They may want to plan ahead to be able to attend.

    @hardtoconcentrate:  I assume you’re inviting everyone who you’re inviting to the wedding, so I would just put it in the wedding invitations. I think you will save a little money that way, and theres no chance of anything getting lost in the mail, or someone receiving one invitation and not the other.

    We had a similar set up (~3 hour drive with most guests spending at least one night in the area).  We had a Friday night bbq, Saturday wedding, and Sunday brunch.  All guests were invited to all three events.  We had the following components to the invitation:

    1. Main invitation for the wedding ceremony and reception, which were on the same site.

    2. “Reception card”-style insert with the bbq and brunch details.  This was smaller, with a similar style/layout to the main invitation.

    3. RSVP card with space to RSVP for all three events individually, plus a stamped reply envelope.

    4. Information insert with directions, lodging, and area activities and restaurants.

    I voted to include an enclosure in the invitation, include info in the welcome bags and word of mouth. I would appreciate a heads-up before the wedding so I could schedule it into my travel plans.
