#99: 2 or 1.

the bf and i sent in the reply card to a wedding invite we recently received...

and three days later, we received a second piece of mail from the couple. a printed note with directions to the ceremony/reception and registry info.

huh.

that's the first time i've ever seen that! does that save on postage or paper? is it etiquette? hm, maybe they just forgot to include the information the first time around...?

It seems like a way to get around the etiquette in regards to registry information. IMO, it sounds like they are asking for gifts.

That being said, I've never heard of this being done.

It doesn't seem like it would save on postage or paper. I just seems like they were trying to get around putting the registry information in the invitation.

Also, directions are not required, but are a nice touch. They can be included on the STD, website or invitation.

Also, most people say you shouldn't include your website on your invitation either, but we did. Our wedding is in August and a bunch of people are making a vacation out of it. We have a huge section of things for people to do while they are in town.

The first thing that came to my mind was that the couple didn't want people showing up that hadn't RSVP'd. You RSVP, you receive MORE info! I think it would cost more postage in the end.
