We’re just doing word of mouth for our (family and bridal party only) rehearsal dinner, it seems beyond silly to deal with (money time and effort wise) invitations for a small amount of people who are all family. Etiquette be damned!

We are sending out invites to ours but it’s a more formal dinner at a restaurant and they require a headcount a couple weeks before. If the place you are having it doesn’t require that – I don’t see why you can’t do word-of-mouth or a cute Evite just so people have all the related information handy!

I would send out invitations, even if its just a mass email. That way everyone has the time, date and location and there is no question about who is invited.

Let your Future Mother-In-Law handle this since it’s technically her party.

@sara_tiara:  I think it’s fine to invite anyone you’d like verbally, but you should follow up with a printed note with details (just so people have it). You could do a simple word template and send it to them. They might forget otherwise 😉

we included a little invite we made and slipped it into, those who were invited, the formal invites we were sending out

We did invites but only because I was in total DIY mode and had the supplies left over. If we would have had to buy them, we wouldn’t have done them. With that said, I actually got tons of compliments on them which I was really surprised by. I’d personally never gotten a Rehearsal Dinner invite before so I’m assuming most of those invited hadn’t either. Apparently they thought it was a nice touch.

I also used the invite to mention the actual rehearsal details too. I knew my girls would be fine but when you’re dealing with men, sometimes they pretend like they heard what you said and processed the information but it actually went in one ear and out the other. This way, they had all of the info right on their fridge (or wherever they stuck the invite).
