It is generally ok to put a map in an invitation. Most people include a map to the location of the ceremony. You may also include a map to the reception if you are inviting the guest to the reception. This is preferable to handing out directions at the ceremony so that if there is someone there who was not invited to the reception, they do not feel slighted. Photocopied maps are taboo. Always make sure that the map is as elegant as the invitation.

In addressing the invitations, generally, you will want to use the following format Mr. and Mrs. Bob John Smith request the honor of your presence.... If your parents are divorced, you will want to consult them with how to list them on the invitation. If they agree, you can list both names on the invitation: "Mrs. Mary Sally Smith and Mr. John Jerry Smith request the honor of your presence...". If they don't want their names to appear together, the name of whoever is hosting the wedding should be on the invitation (note: hosting is not the same as paying for). Another alternative is to put one parent's name on the wedding invitation and the other's name on the reception invitation.

If you are having a reception, it is okay to include the location of the reception in the main invitation. Traditional invitations would generally be worded to invite guests to "the wedding reception of" rather than "the marriage of" the couple. Another key wording change would be "request the pleasure of your company" instead of "request the honor of your presence." You should also include a separate card for guests who are invited to the ceremony also. This card should begin with the wording:

"Mr. and Mrs. John Ray Smith request the honor of your presence at the marriage ceremony at seven o'clock at First Presbyterian Church..."

You generally don't want to include the location of where you are registered in the invitation, as that would give your guest the impression that you are demanding gifts. However, if they ask, you should tell them where you are registered. Moreover, you may also want to tell a few key people who can spread the word about where you are registered in case guests ask these people.
