- Wedding: April 2011 - Oxon Hill Manor
We’re in the processing of wrapping up the design part of our invites (I can’t wait to share) and I feel a bit stuck. We’ve got the invitation and RSVP card (the basics), but nothing else.
At first, I really wanted to include a map, but the area around where we are getting married is super confusing. It’s a lot for a map and plus, doesn’t everyone use GPS nowadays, anyway?
My other thought was an accommodations card. Since mostly everyone is coming from out of town, this seems like a particularily helpful extra. What do you think? Is an invitation and RSVP card enough by itself?
What did you have in your invitation suite?

I think the invite and rsvp is just fine!
- reception card
I think thats it! We may do a map card though since ceremony and recep. are 1 hr away!

- help us fill our playlist card
- other information card; includes website, so they can look up accommodations, things to do, etc.

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

We did pocketfolds, so we had:
- rsvp w/ envelope
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.

-accommodations card that had our website on it

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

-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.

– a map
– a registry info card (which, before I get bashed, is an acceptable and expected thing to do here)
– a drinks token

We have 3 cards, the invitation, the “details” page, and the RSVP. The details page has information about hotels, parking, and our website.

Wow! Your invitations (everything) are so so so pretty! Love them!
That’s the route I’m thinking of taking. Simple!
That makes sense about the website. That’s my whole thing. We have a website with all the accommodations and directions info, so I’m not sure it’s necessary. I’ve always been so into the idea of having several pieces though! It’s hard to let it go 🙂
That is so thoughtful! Our wedding is much earlier in the day, but I would still love for people to explore the area, cause it’s an awesome area. This is why I’m not totally ready to let go of my accommodations/details/directions card!
Thanks! I love the fact that you brought up the Out of Town bags. I can always put the “extra” stuff in there.
