Rehearsal dinners are usually just for immediate family and those participating in the ceremony. We just let everyone know where to be and my husband’s parents picked a place to eat after the rehearsal and paid for everyone. No invitations for ours.

We sent out evites since we needed a headcount for dinner.

You could always just send an evite.

My parents are hosting an informal rehearsal dinner at a restaurant and we sent out evites using paperless post.

We’re having our rehearsal dinner in 2 weeks. We pretty much just told the wedding party and our parents about the rehearsal through conversation via in person, phone and/or text. Nothing formal.

Rehearsal dinners can be just parents and bridal party (plus spouses/SOs) or include extended family, out-of-town guests, etc. Regardless, an evite will help you convey all the necessary information and plan for attendance for even an informal affair.

We sent physical invitations for our Rehearsal Dinner. Inviations to RDs for the weddings we’ve been in have ranged from a text message to an email/evite to physical, mailed invitations like ours. 

If your Rehearsal Dinner isnt formal, an evite should do the job while giving you a good headcount for planning purposes.

We sent an e-invite through Paperless Post.  It was awesome, I got to personalize it and they turned out super cute.  Best part is that they were free!  I think it was nice because we could collect the RSVP and also communicate who was invited from that party/family – i.e. addressing a BM’s invite to Bridesmaid or Best Man + boyfriend, so she knew he was invited too.  I also put the date/time/location of the rehearsal at the church to serve as an extra reminder.

We included RH invites with our regular invitations. We only put them in for the people who were invited. They were lovely and matched the rest of our invitation set.
