    You don’t need rehearsal dinner invites.

    I did them because I found THE cutest template EVER and couldn’t help myself. I asked my Mother-In-Law and she said to knock myself out. I put her RSVP info on them and printed them off myself. I found the cutest poem ever….the DIY part of me took over

    I have never received one for a rehearsal dinner.  I did get an evite once and the other ones have been solely word of mouth.  I think that since it’s just your bridal parties and immediate family, who you probably communicate with a lot, there’s no need for print invites.

    i love paper. all things paper.  i sent invitations to a mothers day brunch last year…to my mom and sisters, they each got one, even though they were all living at the same house.  again, i love paper.

    i would do invitations because i think it sets the tone for the event, plus they’re fun to send and even more fun to recieve.

    I’ve received a Rehearsal Dinner invite before & I totally agree with Clair that it sets the tone of the event! However, they aren’t necessary because everyone involved with the wedding knows they’ll be attending regardless. I think it’s a nice treat & also essential if you are inviting Out of Town guests to the RD!

    I voted to send the invites, but that you should pay for them… only because your Future Mother-In-Law probably doesn’t feel they’re necessary & she hasn’t brought it up! This could be your contribution to the evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you are having an elaborate Rehearsal Dinner then yes.  We’re having about 20+ guests who are all party of emails and phone calls and 1/2 are family so it’s really not necessary for us.

    invites set the tone! i think they are necessary, but dunno if Father-In-Law will be sending them out – they asked for email addresses (to which i balked at silently) so im guessing they are doing an evite of sorts.

    while i think they are proper and necessary since it is a hosted event and its a more formal wedding, this specific event (RD) isnt mine to plan, so its up to them to do what they want. so i am staying out of it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I thought about not doing them, but I found some that were themed and ordered them online.  I found some great blank stock invitations at Target though, that would make a good invitation… used those for the shower.
