BlueRose426:  instead of saying “please RSVP” on the invite, can you say “if you can’t make it, please let BlueRose426 know” ?? That seems as though it would be less of a hassle since you’re saying that everyone is likely coming.

I used Paperless Post for mine. It’s all electronic so when they open the email the invitation pops up and they physically can hit “attending” right there, which then comes straight to me. It worked wonderfully!

They all know some sort of rehearsal and dinner will be happening (pretty much everyone in our wedding has been through a wedding in their life)

I would make really sure that they know this. I thought it was pretty standard, but one of my BMs was somehow unaware of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and also independently decided to skip the announced lunch for all friends earlier in the day, so she didn’t consult me before booking a flight that would get in around 7pm the day before our (morning) wedding. She told me right away after booking, so it was within the 24h window to make changes for free, but that was one big source of stress that could easily have been avoided.

BlueRose426:  We sent rehearsal dinner invites since we had a large bridal party traveling from out of town, including sponsors (a Filipino thing) and weren’t exactly sure if all the spouses and children would make it to the dinner. We planned for everyone, and put a small Regrets Only to my Mother-In-Law, and that took care of the final headcount. I basically wanted to ensure everyone knew the date, time, and place for the rehearsal and dinner (it was unusual that it was two days before the wedding instead of the night before).
