I think the invite and rsvp is just fine! 

We’re including:

  • invite
  • rsvp
  • reception card

I think thats it!  We may do a map card though since ceremony and recep. are 1 hr away!

we had the basic:

  • invitation – just 1 simple card, not backed, or in ribbon or letterpress
  • rsvp card (with envelope) – just a simple card with green border and black ink

thats it!

Invite, RSVP and Accomodation card. We decided on pocketfold invites and they felt pointless without the extra insert.

We did pocketfolds, so we had:

  • invite
  • rsvp w/ envelope
  • reception
  • drirections/info

We did the reception card because our wedding is in 2 different buildings, even though they’re next door to each other. We did the directions/info to let people know about the hotel block and parking because we are getting married downtown. We didnt make a website, so we needed this info in the invite.

@brooch: I have a lot of out of towners too, so I’m doing a ‘things to do in Pittsburgh’ insert since my ceremony doesn’t start until 7 pm in case they wanna plan things to do ahead of time.

Our wedding is considered ‘destination’ as 95% percent of our guests are from out of town.  Included in our invitation suite are:

  • Main Invite
  • RSVP card
  • Accommodations card (which also had out website on it for more info)
  • Weekend Activities (on this card we shared the Out of Town Guest recetption info as well as the Farewell Brunch info

Our Out of Town Gift Box that our guests receive when they check in will have a map of Seattle plus a list of fun things for them to see or do while visiting.  If you have any questions feel free to PM me Wink

We included:


-reception card

-accomodation card

-reply card and envelope

and they were all held together with a belly band that said, “You’re Invited” on it.

Instead of including a map in the invites I had it printed on the back page of my ceremony programs so that it will be handy for people to take with them from the church to the reception (obviously that option only works if (a) you’re going to have ceremony programs, and (b) your ceremony and reception are in different locations. Otherwise, I think that yes, most people have GPS and for those who don’t I did post directions on our wedding website.

Our suite contained:

  • The invitation
  • RSVP card and envelope
  • “Accommodations and Directions” card. This was a large card with tiny print and contained info on hotel blocks, a little map, and written directions from the airport to the hotel, and the hotel to the venue. Our website was on this card too.
