Why send an events card?
Event cards can list the festivities surrounding your wedding weekend, such as welcome cocktails, after-parties, and morning after brunches. If you’re planning a destination wedding, events cards are a great way to provide information to your guests about local hot spots and area attractions to help them make the most of their travel plans. If you have a lot of information to communicate to your guests, you may want to consider a double-sided card or tri-fold.
Events card etiquette
If your guests are coming from out of town be sure to include the street address and city for each venue, especially if they are in a different city than your wedding. If all of your events are taking place at the same location (a resort in Mexico, for example) then you won’t need to be as detailed – just listing the times and specific locations will be adequate. Be sure to include when the event begins and when it ends so your guests can plan accordingly. Any event specific information like dress code and whether or not its an adult only affair should be listed as well. Its always a good idea to add your wedding website to this card, since its likely you’ll have even more information for your guests to access there.
