We are just making an extra insert for those who are invited to the rehearsal dinner and it will be put in with the wedding invite.

I think it depends on who is invited to your Rehearsal Dinner. We have a lot of Out of Town guests that are coming to the dinner but not the reheasal so we’ll be sending separate invites. I’ve never seen one that has a mail in RSVP though. I’ve always thought those are usually just calling to RSVP.

We’re doing separate invites since our rehearsal dinner is on the larger side – that being said though, we are having a phone number to call and RSVP to. We also have meal choices that have to be decided, but they will be asked when they call to RSVP and I will note it on a spreadsheet!

Why don’t you let her handle these?  it seems like she wants to and it’s traditionally her job….

It’s the groom’s family’s party – let her do the invites. This is the one that all you have to do is show up and enjoy yourself!

Sorry this confused me “Only problem is Future Mother-In-Law is hosting the Rehearsal Dinner and wants to be hands on for all of it and doesnt like to use the internet or computer at all.” and I somehow missed this: “Oh and she isnt planning on buying the invitaitons, she wants me to do all that.

 

I think it’s time to have Fiance step in.  Have him explain that you will gladly send out e-vites for her and link her to the RSVP page or she can take care of it in her own way.  As a controlling person, it was hard for me to relinquish the Rehearsal Dinner.  However, I kept reminding myself that if it wasn’t the way I would have done it, it was a reflection on his family, not mine.  It turned out to be asbolutely wonderful, but they are wonderful so I’m not surprised.

  I’d be careful not to put your name on anything so that if it’s a fiasco (it seems very childish for her to want to be part of some of it but not all of it), it’s on her.
