You are planning your wedding by the book. You have not omitted anything so far and at the same time you have sent, planned and hired vendors at the right moment. But now you have some questions regarding your wedding invitations.
You know you need to choose those invitations that will match the formality and the theme of your wedding. Then, you need to print them, to customize, to write them, according to your ideas. As you know, formal invites need to be printed out; informal invites can be written by hand. However, you have this clear. What you do not have clear is whether and what guest information in wedding invitations to add.
On your invite you have written very clearly who the hosts of the wedding are, what the venue of the wedding is and what time your guests are expected to come. Because your invitation is quite formal, your guests know how to dress according to the occasion. But shall you assume your guests know how to come to the wedding site by themselves? Maybe it will not be a good idea so you should include guest information in wedding invitations.
One of the first piece of guest information in wedding invitations to be included is a map of the town, with the location of the wedding circled. This is especially helpful for out–of–town guests. Still for them, it would be a nice idea to include information related to accommodation and transportation. They will feel really welcomed and special at your wedding, knowing you have time to take care of their needs.
But the general guest information in wedding invitations that is included is related to the guest attire that they are expected to wear, the RSVP, a phone number for further questions and some details regarding the gifts. This is still a sensitive subject to be added, but do not include a whole list of gifts, just tell them where to find it if they need it.
Now that you know, all you need to do is get to work, write the list, print it on a high quality paper and add it in the envelope with the invite. Send it and wait for your guests to come and join you two in the beginning of your new life.11
