Okay this may be a really dumb question but here goes….
I know the rehearsal dinner comes after the rehearsal the day before the Big Day.. yea yea. But what I’m not sure about is What time do I put on the invite and how does that correlate with the rehearsal itself?
I know ours will include only those invovled in the rehearsal so do I put the time for when the rehearsal will be or guesstimate a time after or what?!
I JUST DON’T KNOW!!!!! Thanks Bees

This is how we did it….
My now in laws sent out the rehersal dinner invites and put the time and location of the DINNER… .the rehearsal I sent out a mass email with times etc. that they needed to be at the chapel. generally out of town guest etc. are invited to the dinner but not the rehearsal so this is how we solved the problem 🙂

I’m pretty sure my FI and I will be planning the dinner.. or atleast making the invites. My question is still what “time” would I put on the invites. Do I just guesstimate the time it should take for the rehearsal and travel time back to town (the church is about 30 minutes out of town)

I would guestimate what time you will be done with the rehearsal and add travel time to that.
If you need to make a reservation for dinner at a restaurant, then take that into account. “The rehearsal dinner will take place at XXXX restaurant at XX oclock, following the rehearsal.” You can craft better wording. 🙂
If it’s at your home, then maybe you can have a friend or non-wedding party family member be at your home to welcome guests as they arrive, should you be coming a little later. “Dinner immediately following the rehearsal at our home.” == or something like that
