Here is a handy list of most commonly provided information with wedding invitations:
Information cards come in single or double sided – if you are unsure as to what size you’ll need or how many, you can email your wording for them to us and we’ll give you an estimate.
Infocards tend to mirror the shape of your invite so 7 x 5 inch cards tend to suit a rectangular card, likewise square cards suit a square one, so that everything is proportionate
Staggered cards are perfect for pockets and wallets since they allow your guests to see all of the titles at a glance.
Including any information about pre booked rooms or preferential rates for wedding guests, as well as nearby hotels, b&b or campsites.
Give guests a gift list number or include a short paragraph if asking for donations to charity or monetary gifts (Olive Weddings has a set of nice options for the latter so please ask when ordering)
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
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.
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.
