Why send a direction or accommodations card? 

Direction and accommodations cards are especially helpful for out of town guests. If you’ve worked with any hotels to provide a special rate for your guests, these cards are the perfect place to share this information. Direction and accommodations cards also great to help guests find their way – list out driving directions or include an illustrated map to make sure no one gets lost.  If you’re including lots of directions to multiple locations (to the church, from the church to the reception, etc.), you may want to use a double-sided card.
