For our rehearsal dinner, my mother-in-law wanted to mail traditional invites. Every wedding that I’ve been in, though, used email or just word of mouth. Both ways worked for all involved, so I think whatever you prefer is fine! 🙂

We did an evite- everyone knew they were invited anyway, but it was a nice way to give the details/directions.

I’ve now received 2 email/paperless post Reherasal Dinner invites, and I thought they were great.  I wouldn’t rely on word of mouth – it’s always good to have something in writing (or email) that the person can refer back to for the exact time and location.

We’re doing paper but we’ve also received some that have been WOM or email.

We mailed traditional invitations, partially because I wanted an excuse to use a shot from our engagement session. 🙂

Mother-In-Law mailed lovely paper ones.  We were going for a more formal approach so I never really entertained not doing traditional invites. (I understand saving money though by doing an evite)

We did paper ones.  Most of the rehearsal dinner invites we’ve received were paper as well, but maybe thats just our circle of friends.

Most Rehearsal Dinner invites that I’ve received are by email and they’re for a backyard BBQ, or a casual restaurant get together.  I got a paper invite for an Rehearsal Dinner last year that was for a seated 3-course dinner with passed appetizers at cocktail hour and an open bar including a frozen vodka tasting room.  I think that it just depends on the formality of your event. 

Our Rehearsal Dinner is drinks/apps at a “nice” restaurant so we did an evite.
