Q: How much information goes in a destination wedding invitation? We're hosting several parties, but our guests will have to pick up other costs, including their hotel.

A: When choosing your invitations, order reply cards that list each hosted event; that way, guests will understand the overall structure and the events you're paying for, and get a sense of how much of the trip they'll have to finance. You'll also want to include separate cards that explain the accommodation situation. The wording can go something like this: "We have arranged for group rates at two local hotels: the Pleasant Arms (moderate; 888-888-8888) and the Gracious Inn (deluxe; 777-777-7777). When calling for reservations, be sure to mention the Burton/Khan wedding."
