We’re getting married on a Sunday and having a rehearsal dinner (well, we’re not having a rehearsal so technically it’s just “dinner’) and wasn’t sure how to handle inviting people. Most of our guests will be coming out of town and will need to spend an extra night if they want to come to our dinner. We’re not only including wedding party (which is very small) but cousins and aunts/uncles because both of us our only children and my fiance’s parens are both deceased. My questions is how far in advance to I send an invitation for the dinner out to give them plenty of time to arrange travel and accomodations if they’d like to come? Our wedding is October and we already sent our STDs out. Was going to send our regular wedding invitations out in August. Should I send our rehearsal dinner invitations out before that? Or do I just call/email people now to give them an informal heads up?

Most people expect that there is going to be a rehearsal/dinner, but I would give everyone a heads up now–so they can make proper accomodations.
Personally, I’m sending rehearsal invites out about 2 weeks before the wedding, but everyone is aware of when it is already.

you can send them out 2-4 weeks before the wedding.

We’re supposed to send invitations to our rehearsal dinner? I’m obviously not up to par in the wedding planning department. Haha…

We made a seperate card to put into our wedding invitations. That way everyone was aware in advance.

Thanks guys! I’m going to tell them as soon as I make the reservations (soon) and then do a card insert in the invite.

We made out cards to put with the invites for those invited to the rehearsal supper with the date, time, and where it was at.
