No, I don’t think you need to send invites out.  I think if your FIL’s want to, then they can… but it’s certainly not necessary.

I’ve heard of rehearsal dinner invites done every which way: email, mail, word of mouth, etc.  My Fiance and I are paying for the rehearsal dinner and I’m going to mail out postcards.  I’m getting so into all the paper elements for the wedding, I figured why quit now…Smile

For us it will be word of mouth, but I have seen people post their rehearsal dinner invites on here, so I know people do it that way too 🙂 For us, it just isn’t in the budget.

my FIL’s did the email invite route worked okay from what i can tell.

if its a short list of folks, its not really a must have. most assume if they are in the wedding party there will be a Rehearsal Dinner.

We did an invite and included it with our invitations.

I’ve seen rehearsal dinner invites sent seperate or sent with the invite…I prefer with the invite but either will work 🙂 Or if your in-laws prefer they can call the guests who are invited to the rehearsal dinner on their side and you contact your side…

Yes, send out invitations only to those invited to the rehearsal dinner. That way, everyone who needs to be invited HAS an invitation. Word of mouth is a very dangerous thing in weddingland.
