It seems like a lot of information, right? And you’re probably wondering the best way to communicate all these details to your guests. Information like the date, time, and location can certainly go on your wedding invitation; however, it’s best to list things like attire and hotel accommodations separately. Digital stationery companies (like Greenvelope) offer a secondary details page that’s perfect for additional information. Wedding websites (like The Knot) are also a popular solution for keeping guests on the same page.
