They are a nicety, you could just get a few and include them in the invitations to those guests that should be there.

I dont think so, aren’t the people at the rehersal dinner generally apart of the wedding, cant you just let them know when you give them all the other info.

we invited all of our out of towners to our rehearsal dinner, so we sent out e-vites. I did them on punchbowl.com and they were super cute and free. You do have to round up everyone’s emails, but I think it’s nice to have some sort of invitation. The only reason I say that is because in the past we’ve traveled to weddings out of state when hubs was a groomsman and I was all set to go to the Rehearsal Dinner and then found out dates weren’t invited (awkward…). It’s nice to be clear, IMO.

Our bridal party is made up of family except one Bridesmaid or Best Man, so we are just going to ask word of mouth. In the end it will end up only being 11 people include my Fiance and I. This might be rude, but in the end, I don’t see a point in mailing an invite to people I talk to or see at least a few times a month.

They’re not necessary but I do think that they’re a nice touch if you have the time and resources to send them. I made our Rehearsal Dinner invites and we got lots of compliments on them. Most of our guests had never gotten a Rehearsal Dinner invite before so they appreciated the extra thought.
