When Adam and I were wedding planning, we knew our hotel block was going to be huge – and we wanted people to book rooms early, to ensure we’d be given enough as part of our reservation. This information was important enough to convey as part of the invitation, but we didn’t want it on the main card, since that’s what would end up front and center on our guests’ fridge. So, we had an added card with “more information,” including parking/shuttle, hotel, and our website. Problem solved, mischief managed. Cut to the weekend of our wedding and we had 63 rooms at our hotel (half the property), so it was basically a Leah-and-Adam’s-people reunion in the lobby the whole time.
I’m all for team “added card,” so this blog will outline four reasons why an added card is helpful, a suggestion for designing them, and one case where you don’t need one for your wedding.
