    I voted yes, simply because the reception is located somewhere other than where the ceremony is taking place. You should let your guests know where the reception is going to be held. There’s a chance that you can fit this onto your invitation itself, but if you can’t than I think you should include an additional insert.

    @jesssamesssa:  I say no. Our ceremony and reception are in two different places, and we only included our invitation to the ceremony with “reception to follow” and our RSVP card. We also included the address for our wedding website with the invitation and any other information relevant to the ceremony or reception will be on the website. I think it’s perfectly okay to only include the basics in the invite if you will also have a website with other details.

    I think if your invite says “reception to follow” you should have something that indicates the location/directions to the second location, what time everything starts, etc.

    If your reception is in a different spot I think you should have a reception invite card as well. I wouldn’t count on everyone making it to the website to figure out when/where the reception is if that is the only place you put the information.

    Voted yes since the reception is at a different location.

    This is funny for me because we included all the information and pretty much everyone still asks us for all the info…like what’s the address, the date, what’s our address etc etc etc.  It’s on the invite peeps! LOL!!!
