1) can you show me your Rehearsal Dinner invitation? I’ve just been tasked with designing/sending them out by my Future Mother-In-Law (even though FI”s parents are hosting, they’re very “We don’t know what we’re doing so you do it!!!!” nevermind that I don’t know what I’m doing either…). My brain is a little tapped out of invitation skills after finalizing our wedding invitation. I think I’m just going to order from etsy, but there are too many options. If it helps, our Rehearsal Dinner is at a well-known Italian restaurant in a historic neighborhood – so pretty traditional)
2) how do you word it? We’re inviting our bridal party, Bridal Party dates/SOs, and a few Out of Town relatives. Obviously we only need the people involved with the ceremony at the actual rehearsal, but I’d like a way to communicate “this is the rehearsal, this is the rehearsal dinner” to the Bridal Party. Or do we just send out Rehearsal Dinner invitations and email our Bridal Party the actual rehearsal information?
3) does anyone else misspell rehearsal every freaking time?

@StL.Ashley: I’m curious too! I have no idea what to do for this!

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
Here’s mine. I ordered off ETSY and then had mine custom done in our colors (so mine are all shades of purple) from EventsWithGrace. They were awesome to work with and I printed mine out at home.
I liked that the rehearsal card and dinner invite were seperate. Since we have a few people who will just be coming to the dinner (ex. my gradparents traveling internationally to be here).

@StL.Ashley: Hi. I need to do Rehearsal Dinner invites too. I was thinking of putting an insert in my wedding invitation to my selected Rehearsal Dinner invitees. You could do this with a double sided RSVP card too. One card, two purposes, one stamp but it will only work if folks actually turn the darn card over.
Another part of me is thinking of doing an e-invite for Rehearsal Dinner and day after activities from my wedding website. If I do this, I may put an insert into my wedding invites saying something like, “watch your email for the Rehearsal Dinner details.”
So many options. Most of them not being perfect but, whateva.

@StL.Ashley: Ours was at a Mexican restaurant, so we kept with that theme. I ordered some cheepies off Vista Print, and they turned out just fine. Our rehearsal was a small group, so I didn’t put all that much thought into it. 🙂
