Including Maps & Directions in Your Invitation

In an age of Mapquest and Global Positioning Systems, including a map and directions in your wedding invitation might seem wasteful to a practical bride. I have yet to adopt a GPS system, but I would be lost without Mapquest and use it weekly.

However, no matter how tech savvy your guests are, including a map or directions they can pop into their purse or pocket on the way to the ceremony is an easy way to make sure every single guests knows exactly where they are headed when they walk out the door.

Adding an insert to your wedding invitation is not free, however having the peace of mind that great Aunt Joy will be able to tell Uncle Sal where to turn at the busy intersection could be worth it.

Since 99% of our guests at my own wedding were local, we included directions only. With our church being located right downtown, it can be confusing what exit to take, and what way to turn. It was also a great place to note where convenient, free parking was located.

What are you doing with your invitations?
