Wedding Etiquette: Informing Guests of Wedding Accommodations?

Q: We are having our spring wedding at an out-of-town location. How do I forward wedding accommodation information to my guests? Instead of sending it in the wedding invitations, could I send a second mailing?

A: You certainly can. In fact, since by the time the wedding invitation is sent it may be too late to book hotels, most couples choose to include this information in their save-the-date cards. These are sent as early as six months before the wedding, so it's perfect timing to not only get the wedding date on guests' calendars but also to allow them ample time to make travel plans. You can also put hotel information on your wedding web page, and just include the link on your save-the-dates.
