My ceremony will take place at a church and the reception will take place practically 4 minutes walking distance away from the church. Weather permitting, I planned on walking with my wedding party to the reception after our vows and imagine most guests will do the same - so there is no need to include driving directions as the guests will likely pass the reception venue on the way to church or park at the reception venue and walk to the church and walk back.
My question is this - Is it necessary to include a reception card? Most advice has been yes, because they take place at different locations. However, because of their close proximity, I am wondering if I can get away without one.
If it is not necessary, how would you word the reception information on the invitation? I am thinking that including the town and state are redundant since it is the same as the church, but they are also on the same street - could I just put "reception to follow at the [reception hall]" ? Or should I include the street address only? I don't want the invitation to look like I am cramming all of the information on one piece of paper.
I plan on including tons of information like directions and even a map of the walking path to take on our website.
Thank you for your input!!
