I think those are more than enough… but I would really, really reconsider listing phone numbers for you and your family! 

You’d be surprised with the things they’ll call with even up until the last minute. Maybe instead include an email if they have questions?

Good luck!

@moondrop: I would not include all of this information in the wedding invite.  I think it is too much.    I would include the wedding website and leave it to people to find the information that they need/want.

@moondrop: this seems like a lot for an invite.

@andielovesj: This is what I am thinking.

On ours at the bottom of the reception card I put for more information visit: oursite

Then on the site I had the directions, hotel info, etc.

agreed – you can put most of this on your website.

We included directions to the reception, names of Hotels with blocks, and where we registered.

Agree with PP. On the info card, just put a note telling them to check out your website.

“For more information about our wedding, including accommodations and fun activities in [name of city], please visit our website: http://www.wedding.com/brideandgroom.”

Honestly, I would either just put the wedding website and have all the other info on the site, or I would do website, hotel info and directions to the wedding.

Agree with other posters. Plus, is everyone getting an invitation invited to the welcome dinner? mine are sized 6.75″ x 4.75″ and all the text is centered:

GUEST INFORMATION

 

DINNER RECEPTION

NAME OF RESTAURANT

NAME AND ADDRESS OF COUNTRY CLUB WHERE RESTAURANT IS

 

HOTEL ACCOMODATIONS

LISTED ALL 3 HOTELS SEPARATELY AND THEIR PHONE NUMBERS

 

FOR MORE DETAILED TRAVEL AND HOTEL INFORMATION, INCLUDING GROUP RATE CODES AND BOOKING DEADLINES, PLEASE VISIT http://WWW.MYWEBSITE.COM

SEE REVERSE SIDE FOR MAP

and on the back of it is a map (done in powerpoint then inserted into the Word file) and I show all three hotels, the country club, the airport, major highways and major local roads, exits, arrows pointing off the map to where niagara falls and downtown buffalo are, and i also included some local restaurants (mainly the best places for wings) and i also included where the mall is, just in case someone needs pantyhose, socks, whatever. always good to know where the mall is!!

also keep in mind…it’s 2011….between Garmins and cell phones, most people don’t need directions provided. i’m only including the map so they can see where hotels are in reference to the country club and get a general lay of the land. i dont actually think people will be using my powerpoint map to get to/from the reception.

It seems like that stuff would only be needed for guests who are actually staying at the hotels. You could put that information on a card when they check into the hotel. Or you could put everything on the website. I don’t really think anyone needs your numbers/e-mail. Mostly because y’all will be busy the day of and before… so you don’t want to be answering their questions. They should be able to figure stuff out on their own, or call a non-related person to ask questions.
