    @red_rose: I have been to numerous weddings were the ceremony and reception are at different sites, to avoid time confusions and guest, the bride and groom have inserted a map inside the invitation with the time, date, and location.

    A website if you have one is also a great idea especially if they lose the insert. what you can do out of courtesy is print out any extras leave them in a discreet area with the wedding programs or put an asterisk on the wedding ceremony pamplet saying “maps to the venue are in the back by the drinking fountain” or whatever you please.  I know that  as soon as I get invitations I look up the address immediately text it to my cell under wedding directions so that I just look it up quickly

    Usually the maps are mailed with the invitation. I’ve never seen maps handed out at the actual ceremony. TO be honest these days most people just google the directions or use their GPS

    If its obvious to your in-town guests where they will be going, then I would include the map only in the invites for your Out of Town guests.  From there, it’s their responsibility to make sure they remember them and/or to google map the destination prior to the event.  I’ve never seen maps handed out at a wedding.

    Maps and written directions are usually included on their own card in the wedding invite. Many people do not have GPS systems, contrary to popular belief, so that won’t work for alot of folks. Also, not everyone is internet-savvy, especially older guests, so relying on a website for your main source of info to your guests is not ideal either.

    Directions on the back of the program only works if the reception is held elsewhere, which is not the case at all weddings.
