What to include – Wedding invite information cards

Information cards can be essential to your guests. They allow you to give all the particulars of your big day without cluttering up our invite.
We have designed some beautiful options for information cards which keep them neat and informative whilst adding a unique touch to your invitations.

But how do you know what to include? Each wedding is different so you can pick and choose the information relevant to your guests and your big day from the headings below. I’ve even included some handy wordings for those tricky topics; inviting children (or not) and asking for money as a gift.


Can include written directions from major motorways, between venue and include maps – either supply your own or use our map drawing service.


Including any information about pre-booked rooms or preferential rates for wedding guests, as well as nearby hotels, b&b or campsites.


Let guests know whether transport between venues is laid on and information about local taxi companies for later in the evening


Give some useful contact numbers for guests to ring in case of any issues


The above detail is also appropriate for destination weddings although you may want to provide a little information about the local area and flights. Or a map using our map drawing service?


Sometimes couples provide a dress code and if your wedding venue has a lot of grass and gravel it is worth letting guests know so the can choose appropriate footwear.


If your wedding is set out over a weekend, you may want to give guests a schedule so that the know when to be where and help things run smoothly. The alternative is an illustrated schedule for the big day itself, a modern and fun way to get folks in the right place at the right time, as pictured.


Give guests a gift list number or include a short paragraph if asking for donations to charity or monetary gifts

If asking for money you’ll find some polite ways of doing so at the below:

We are sending this invitation in the hope that you will join our celebrations. If a gift is your intention, then we would really appreciate some money towards our honeymoon.
Most important for us is that you are there to share our day. If you want to give us a present, then we would like you to make a contribution to our honeymoon.

In place of wedding gifts we are inviting contributions to our honeymoon fund. But please do not feel obliged - we are just happy to have you with us on our special day.

Since we currently live together, we have already collected all of the household items we need. If however, you would like to offer a gift, we would gratefully accept any contribution towards our honeymoon.

Your presence rather than our presents are important to us. However, should you wish to make a gift a contribution towards home improvements, our honeymoon and our future would be greatly appreciated.

If you were thinking of giving a gift, to help us on our way, a gift of cash towards our future would really make our day. However, if you prefer to purchase a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own way.

The greatest gift to us is your company as we celebrate our marriage. We do not have a wedding gift list. However, if you would like to contribute to our honeymoon, we would be very grateful. A ‘post box’ for any gifts of this nature will be available at the reception.

All we want is for you to join us on our wedding day and help us celebrate the fact that this day has finally arrived!
However, we have been asked by many people what we want.
Well, X years together has resulted in a huge amount of stuff. We can't fit anything more in our flat!
What we would really appreciate is your help with an amazing honeymoon.


Some couples prefer not to invite children to weddings, so a short paragraph to say if children can be accommodated on your big day is important.

Due to numbers, we are unfortunately unable to invite children to attend the ceremony, wedding breakfast or evening reception. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate all the children of our guests at our wedding. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy your day off!

As much as we’d love to, we’re unable to accommodate children and hope that all parents enjoy their night off.

As much as we love them, unfortunately, children are not invited to the wedding

Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate all the children of our guests at our wedding. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy your day off!
