1) can you show me your RD invitation? I’ve just been tasked with designing/sending them out by my FMIL (even though FI”s parents are hosting, they’re very “We don’t know what we’re doing so you do it!!!!” nevermind that I don’t know what I’m doing either…). My brain is a little tapped out of invitation skills after finalizing our wedding invitation. I think I’m just going to order from etsy, but there are too many options. If it helps, our RD is at a well-known Italian restaurant in a historic neighborhood – so pretty traditional)
2) how do you word it? We’re inviting our bridal party, BP dates/SOs, and a few OOT relatives. Obviously we only need the people involved with the ceremony at the actual rehearsal, but I’d like a way to communicate “this is the rehearsal, this is the rehearsal dinner” to the BP. Or do we just send out RD invitations and email our BP the actual rehearsal information?
3) does anyone else misspell rehearsal every freaking time?

@StL.Ashley: I’m curious too! I have no idea what to do for this!

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
Here’s mine. I ordered off ETSY and then had mine custom done in our colors (so mine are all shades of purple) from EventsWithGrace. They were awesome to work with and I printed mine out at home.
I liked that the rehearsal card and dinner invite were seperate. Since we have a few people who will just be coming to the dinner (ex. my gradparents traveling internationally to be here).

@StL.Ashley: Hi. I need to do RD invites too. I was thinking of putting an insert in my wedding invitation to my selected RD invitees. You could do this with a double sided RSVP card too. One card, two purposes, one stamp but it will only work if folks actually turn the darn card over.
Another part of me is thinking of doing an e-invite for RD and day after activities from my wedding website. If I do this, I may put an insert into my wedding invites saying something like, “watch your email for the RD details.”
So many options. Most of them not being perfect but, whateva.

@StL.Ashley: Ours was at a Mexican restaurant, so we kept with that theme. I ordered some cheepies off Vista Print, and they turned out just fine. Our rehearsal was a small group, so I didn’t put all that much thought into it. 🙂
