Key Contact Info

Tell your guests how to reach the people you've designated as go-to contacts (family members, wedding attendants, and/or your wedding planner). Include both their cell phone numbers (be sure to get ones that work locally, even if you have to rent) and the landline number for their hotel rooms. Don't include your contact info -- most people won't feel comfortable bothering you, and you'll have enough on your mind already.
