Pretty straight forward- who paid for and sent the invitations for the rehearsal dinner? Please don’t bother responding if you didn’t have a rehearsal dinner/didn’t have invitations to a rehearsal dinner.

I offered to handle the invitations, since I already had a pretty serious guest list manager, but Father-In-Law said I had plenty on my plate already and they were happy to handle the invites and rsvps. It was totally their party, which was lovely – all I had to do was show up!

My Future In-Laws are hosting ours.. they never once mentioned invitations, and I didn’t feel like doing them so we aren’t having invites. Kind of sucks but it is too late now! 🙁

We are letting people know by phone/text/email. Our rehearsal dinner is pretty informal. If your having a formal rehearsal dinner, I would mail out invitations.

Thanks for the feedback. FI’s folks are hosting and I don’t think it’s occurred to them that invites would be a good idea. It’s not the most formal dinner, but 21 people are invited and the rehearsal address is different from the dinner address and 8 people are coming from out of state. I think paper invites would be best in our case. Future Mother-In-Law wants her touch on the wedding I think, so I’m hoping she’s excited by the idea.

Not sure if I’m in the category of “don’t bother responding” but our rehearsal dinner was hosted out of the general wedding budget at my aunts house and she provided some of the food. It was limited to parents and bridal party. She offered to send out an email but we ended up just communicating that it was happening by word of mouth.

We hosted/paid, and I sent an evite. Easy, and since we needed to include links for parking, etc., it worked out best for us.
