Where can I stay? What can I do?

Mention any details of your hotel room block, including the name, address, pricing and some local alternatives. If you're not doing a room block, try to include plenty of local hotel/Air BNB suggestions for a comfortable stay.

A block of rooms has been reserved for our guests at a discounted rate. Please reference __ when making your reservations. Kindly reserve your room by __.
We have provided a list of suggested accommodations in the area for those wish to stay.

Have guests staying awhile? It might be worth adding in some local things for them to do! Think local restaurants, bars, movie theatres, malls, etc.


How will I get to the venue? Where can I park?

Guests will want to plan how they're getting there and back, so don't forget to include transportation details. If you're offering a shuttle, include the shuttle name, location and timing. For those driving themselves, include the venue's address, directions, parking directions, parking cost, valet details, gate code, etc.


What is the nearest airport/public transit?

This will help guests traveling from far away.


What is the dress code?

The more specific you are, the better your guests can understand! Nobody wants to feel under or over-dressed. Example answer:

Semi-formal attire, with a touch of holiday cheer! We'll be outside for ceremony, so be sure to bundle up!

What will the weather be like this time of the year?

This is especially helpful if your venue is somewhere guests aren't particularly familiar with. Example answer:

Expect spring-like weather. The average temperature for this date in this location is _.

Can I bring my kids?

If the answer is no, here's a kind way of saying it:

To allow all wedding guests, including parents, a night of relaxation and uninhibited revelry, we respectfully ask that no children attend the reception.

Can I bring a guest?

Example answer:

If your invitation included "and guest," then absolutely. If not, we would prefer if it was just you.

What is the timeline?

Let your guests know what's going on the day-of and when. Some important things to include are ceremony, cocktail hour, food/drink info (apps? open bar?), end time, etc.


Can I take pics during ceremony?

If your ceremony is unplugged, here's a kind way to say 'please don't ruin our ceremony pics' -

We hired an awesome photography company called __, who will capture every beautiful moment during ceremony. Respectfully, we ask that you please keep your phones away and be present in the moment with us.

Is there an afterparty?

Going somewhere after the wedding? Let them know on your website. Using WithJoy, you can actually limit what certain guests can see which can come in handy if you don't want to invite absolutely everyone.


Are there gluten-free/vegan/vegetarian options?

Let your guests know to reach out to you ahead of time with this information. The more information you give your venue on this, the better the chefs can understand the crowd. This is especially important for allergies and dietary restrictions that are severe!!!


Are there any COVID-19 restrictions?

Every area has different rules, so make sure you provide guests with the latest info on travel restrictions/mask mandates/vaccine mandates/social distancing etc. for your area, venue, hotel and shuttle.
