Can you gocco Rehearsal Dinner invites?  We ordered ours from Etsy — we worked with Sarah Parrott, who’s a WeddingbeePRO — and they were only a few dollars each!

We had Ashley of 2birdstone designs on etsy create our invites for us, then we had them printed on vistaprint.

Or you could do an online evite.  http://www.evite.com or just google free online evites.  I know there are some sites out there that have VERY nice looking evites.

Since it’s only a select group of people for the rehearsal, this might be a good alternative.

I bought similar paper that I used for my invites at Paper Source and just printed them on my parents’ color printer.  Very simple, but I am only inviting around 25 people to the dinner.

I almost did an Evite just to keep things even easier!

mhirni’s idea is a great one – just make sure to let the ink dry completely before you send them out…regular printer ink smears pretty easily.  (We do this for parties/cocktails at our home)

Also, there are som great sites out there that aren’t very expensive.  We recently got engagement party invitations from http://www.paperbuzz.com

Make them yourself!  It’s cheap and easy.  I made our rehearsal dinner inviations myself.  They were a lot of fun and I think they turned out pretty cute. We had a mountain-top Western BBQ rehearsal dinner.  I wrote a little poem for the front, along with time and place.  And then I put some practical information on the back (i.e. altitude, lift tickets will be provided, western attire encouraged, will be chilly at night, etc.).

I ordered white paper/cardstock, red envelopes and address labels from Paper Source and printed them myself at home. I lined the inside of the envelopes in different “western” paper that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby. I made the matching return address circle labels for the back of the envelopes by printing round circles on sticker paper and then cutting them out using a 2 inch circular cut-out.  The front labels were ordered from Paper Source and matched the envelopes.  And I got horseshoe stamps from Zazzle.com that matched our theme!  I think I spent around $50 total.

We also used evite.com. Everyone attending our rehearsal dinner is tech-savvy (or at least, knows how to use e-mail), so it was the best solution for us to save a few bucks on more paper and postage. We actually plan on sending them out to everyone this week!

I definitely agree with the DIY route. I’m in love with all of the stamping/embossing I’ve been seeing lately! It looks very professional, and the texture adds a little zing.
