If you send them together, then I would say maybe.  Otherwise, I don’t think it matters

I’d actually do them different – but just because I think variety is fun!  In the big scheme of things – it doesn’t matter.  I’d have the Rehearsal Dinner invites reflect the tone of the Rehearsal Dinner itself (and not the wedding).

I think it depends. If they’re both casual or both formal, they could be the same, but I wouldn’t send a formal invite to an informal Rehearsal Dinner just to match.

I did mine completely opposite! I loved our invites but I wanted to do something really funky and graphic and my family was not on board, LOL! So I went crazy for the rehearsal invite to get it out of my system.

We did different ones since we were hosting the dinner for our son and soon to be daughter in law and they did the wedding invites.. we showed them what we liked and they loved it.. a bit whimisical.. here are the ones we did: http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/rehearsal-dinner-invitations.html  they were perfect as our rehearsal dinner was a casual event.

It was important to Future Mother-In-Law that they be the same, so she ordered the rehearsal dinner invites in the same style as my invites.  I would have chosen to go with something different (our Rehearsal Dinner is going to have a totally different vibe than our wedding reception), but of course it is her deal so I just let it lie.

I designed our invites and Save-The-Date Cards and they are completely different styles. I really worried about them not being cohesive for a while, then I decided that it didn’t matter. What mattered to me was that I (as the designer) liked them and that they represented us as a couple. When it comes time to think about the rehearsal dinner invites, I plan to design something else, maybe in the same theme, but maybe completely different.


Besides, how else can you use all of your inspiration ideas if you don’t do some of it differently?
