What Are Accommodation Cards?
I feel like accommodation cards are how you know you have reached the wedding planning big leagues. For those who haven’t planned out the intricate details of their wedding stationery yet, let’s talk a bit about accommodation cards.
Accommodation cards are sometimes referred to as hotel cards. As their name implies, these cards inform your guests about lodging and accommodation information. They are one of the many inserts included in your wedding invitation envelope. An accommodation card is typically sent to every wedding guest.
There are a few reasons why you may want to send accommodation cards. If you have family and friends flying in from out of town, they will likely need somewhere to stay. That is, unless you plan on a Father of the Bride backyard-style wedding where you host your whole family!
Accommodation cards can let guests know of what local hotels, bed and breakfast, and other lodging opportunities are available.
These cards are particularly helpful if you have reserved a hotel room block in a specific locale for your out of town guests. Placing this detailed information on a card can help those who are not tech-savvy figure out which rooms to select so that they are with the wedding party. We got you, grandma!
Wedding accommodation cards are also very handy if your reception will be held at a hotel or resort where you want your guests to stay. It’s so much easier if you can keep everything under the same roof, and these cards will help you disseminate that information to all of your guests!
To make it easier for those who you invite, try to include all pertinent information on your accommodation insert card. You should try to list all of the following information on your accommodation card, if relevant:
- The hotel and its address,
- the block of rooms reserved (may include a group code or group name),
- the date the rooms must be reserved by,
- the hotel’s website and/or phone number,
- possibly transportation info, if a shuttle is provided.
There is no need to include a direct link to the hotels booking page; this can look complicated and messy. Additionally, don’t feel that you need to give details on the climate, flights, or other minor details. Accommodation cards are a simple way to let your guests know that you care about them flying in for your wedding day and have made plans accordingly.
