Does it have the City at all on there.  If people are not familar with the site name or your intentions on where you are having the ceremony townwise.  This could cause some phone calls of people wondering where the wedding is.  I have always seen at least the city and state on the invites so people can look it up online or whatnot for directions.

I didn’t put the zip code on our invitation, just the city and state. People aren’t mailing things there… they’re driving there so I don’t think they need the zip.

You don’t need the zip code on the invitation.  Just the city and state (though you could add the zip code if it "fit" stylistically).   These days people can just google the reception venue and they will be able to find directions.  You could also include a card with a map and directions to the venue to avoid any confusion.

I only included the name of the hall, city and state. I had accidentally put the zipcode but the invitation provider had removed it as a suggestion, which I then approved.

I would appriciate the zip code for directional purposes but I guess street, city and state would work as well and if most of your guests are local it is completely unecessary.

Maybe having the zip code comes off as less formal???  In any case, I think a map insert with the location’s full address will suffice to get your guests to where they are going.  My vote would be to leavethe zips off and include the info on an insert.

I think the "official" way is no zip code, but I don’t believe there is any set way to do things anymore… so I say if it adds something to the invitation, then use it and if not, ditch it.
