    Future Mother-In-Law wants to send a separate invite for the rehearsal dinner AND a separate invitation for the party they are hosting after the dinner! She’s going to take care of it thank god because I haven’t even figured out our wedding invitations yet.

    I’d do something (either mail or email) so people have written directions/time etc.  You never know where you catch people on the phone (in the middle of making dinner, in the car, etc.)  We’re including the rehearsal dinner as an “extra” insert in our pockets. If you opt for phone, I’d follow up with at least an email or simple written invite!

    We’re going the evite route.  The people who are coming are people we talk to/email/text message on a daily basis.  No formalities needed!  I love them, but I have no problem saving a little money, paper & effort by sending them an evite.  They’d do the same for me!

    I have no desire to add to my list of things to do and expenses by dealing with invites for the rehearsal dinner.  We will be doing it by word of mouth.

    Future Mother-In-Law is mailing separate invites to ours since they’re hosting—FI thought this was insane, but I think it’s fine. We also put the info on our website, though, and are collecting RSVPs for all events online anyway so it was easy to roll in there. However, ours is for all Out of Town guests so that’s quite a lot of people—word of mouth seems fine for an intimate group, but for more than 20 or so I’d want either a paper invite or an eVite to make sure everyone has everything straight (and more importantly, RSVPs!)

    ETA: Oh, and the invites are fill-in from a paper store—which I think is completely fine for the more casual dinner, and is far less costly than, say, the wedding invites.

    I got super cheap invites at Staples. It came in a pack of 50.  I can make them at home in my printer.  🙂
