Give your guests a glimpse of your love story and make the site like a book of your love story. You should not worry about it as your guests would understand it anyway.

Direct them to which route they need to pass on or which way they need to go if they are going there using public transportation. You would not want them to get lost especially that they already exerted a lot of effort in just being there.
Best if the directions are easy and simple to follow. Do not give your guests a hard time reaching your venue.
- Hotel room number and information
If you reserve hotel rooms for your guests from different cities or states, this is the right place to say it so. Include on your site the complete name of the hotel, the room numbers, and the address. If there is a charge they need to pay, this is also the right place to say it.
Make sure that rates, including discount codes and deadlines, are well noted. If the rooms are all sold out, do not forget to upgrade your site so that your guests are aware if they need to find a different booking.
- Things they can enjoy
This space is for your guests who are coming from different states.

This space is to give your guests suggestions with the best places they can go to.

- Wedding party
Why not give your guests a glimpse of the names of your wedding party? Not only just the names but best put pictures on each. Share your guests a short bio of how you become friends or why did you choose that particular person.
Writing as much information as you can is nice, anyway, it is free. This will surely melt your wedding party’s heart.
- Wedding vendors

Let them know the wedding vendors who will be attending your wedding. This is also a good way to let these vendors know they are appreciated.
Do not put just their business name but also what they offer, their expertise, and their address and contact information too.
- Wedding sponsors
