You Will Need
- Printed directions
- Test run
- Bridal party member
- Picture of the venue (optional)
Ask the venue
Ask the venue to provide you with directions. Often, the venue will have prepared printed directions that you can copy and include with your invitations.
Take a test drive for yourself at the same time and day of the week your ceremony is to take place. Note heavy traffic, one-way streets, or anything else that can't be seen on a map.
Include a map
Include a map of the area around the venue with the directions so your guests can familiarize themselves with street names before they head out.
Provide contact info
Find a willing member of your wedding party who will not be busy helping you plan and include their contact information along with the directions. If someone gets lost, they can call them.
If the reception is in another location, bring copies of the directions with you to the ceremony to pass out to anyone who may have forgotten theirs. Be confident that everyone will show up and enjoy your wedding.
