We are doing rehearsal dinner invitations.  Most of the rehearsal dinners I have been to did them as well.  We plan on doing the same as you; we’ll pick out and mail the invites, but make sure that it is clear that Future Mother-In-Law is hosting and it’ll have her RSVP info.  I think they are convenient for guests and then there is no confusion about where, when, and who is invited.

We’re doing separate invitations for rehearsal dinner and brunch in part because we’re inviting kids only to the rehearsal dinner and brunch.

We did separate rehearsal dinner invitations. I think its a good idea, because this way everyone knows if they are invited, what time, location, etc etc. I’ve been to a rehearsal dinner before without invitations and it was sort of confusing.

I think you should mention it to your Future Mother-In-Law, but also offer to show her the invites, etc, so she doesn’t feel like you are stepping on her toes.

I think they’re totally optional, but definitely a good idea because people will be clear on the where and when. While brides know their wedding schedules by heart, everyone else needs a little help I think 😉 Also, if the invitations are super cute, that’s a bonus!

We incorporated our rehearsal dinner invites with our wedding invites. Since we have a lot of out of town family, and guests we wanted everyone to know all the information as far ahead time as possible to ensure that they can make their travel plans accordingly. It adds a few extra components to the invites, and some extra time putting them together but I believe it was worth it 100%.

my Future Mother-In-Law is planning to send out separate rehearsal dinner invitations!  If you can swing the cost, I would definitely go with the cute ones.  Check with your FIL’s if they are paying for the dinner and/or the invitations!

I had no idea but my Future Sister-In-Law has already worked on a design for our Rehearsal Dinner invitations.  So definitely check with FIL’s, they may have something in the works already.

I’m letting this one slide. I am pretty sure that Future Mother-In-Law is totally unaware of rehearsal invites, and I am trying not to ask too much of her, since she is already throwing/paying for the entire rehearsal. I have been tempted by some really cute ones recently, though! I think I will definitely send out an email or evite about it, however, just so everyone has a hard copy of the time/place/directions/etc.
