We are having our wedding and reception in a friends backyard in Murrieta, CA. We are having about 150 guests.
Obviously we won’t have room for that many cars on the small estate. The owner of the house has 10 acres of bare land very close by and we are thinking of having guests park there and then shuttling guests back and forth in a 12 person van to the event location.
My question is. Which address do we put on the invitations? The event address or the parking address?

Personally, I would put the event address on the invitations. But I would make it very clear on an information card and my website what the parking situation is.

I would have a separate reception card: where you can put both the address of the reception as well as information about the parking/shuttles.

instead of doing a van for shuttles, what about having people come to the venue and hiring valets to park cars? that way you wont need to worry about including 2 different addresses.
If thats not a possibility, I would definitely include a reception card or a directions card with parking information. you may also want to have an attendant at the venue waiting to explain to guests what the parking situation is (and directing them to the parking area).

Thank you ladies! I think I will defintely put the event address on the invite and include an additional directions card.
This is a good suiggestion. However, I’m not sure we have the cash flow to hire valet. I will look into it though.
