So, since we are pretty much having a destination wedding. FI and I figured it would be best to invite everyone that we are inviting to the wedding to the rehearsal dinner. How should I go about sending the invites for this? Should I include something in the actual wedding invitation and have them send the response card along with the wedding response card? Or should I do a totally seperate invitation for the rehearsal dinner?

I think it would be fine to send it in the same invite. I’ve seen things that have just one response card (which saves on paper and postage), and you just have different options for them to check off if they can come to each different event.

That’s a good point on the paper and postage!

I think artbee is right. Save postage and hassle. Sometimes its hard enough to get people to respond to things, if they can respond to both at once, saves everyone some headache.. 🙂

I saw this post and it freaked me out! You definitely got me thinking. I think I’ll do one evite style. The wedding invitation was fun, but I’m exhausted. I think it will be okay to “computerize” this one.

I’ve never recieved a formal inviation to a rehersal dinner, it was just always word of mouth.

@pengoala: Ditto on that! I’m sending an evite….its hard enough waiting for the wedding RSVP’s. I don’t think anyone will mind

I’m either doing an evite or email. The only people who are going are the people who are in the wedding (plus their guests) so I’ll see all of them at the rehearsal anyway!

I’ve gotten Rehearsal dinner invite by itself in the mail in a formal invitation. But I have also gotten an invite inside the actual wedding invitation. The invite Igot inside the wedding invitation just included a phone number to call with an RSVP. I think either way would work fine. If you haven’t already send out your invitations, I would prefer to get a formal invite in the mail vs an evite.
