Welcome dinner? Pre-wedding celebration? Wedding warm up dinner?

 

Oh, and I should note I think its totally normal to just invite them to the dinner calling it a rehearsal dinner. I think another name for the dinner may actually confuse them. I have my actual bridal party coming for the church part and then their significant others are joining us for dinner.

I was invited to a rehearsal dinner last year and I understood that the bridal party would be at the rehearsal and we would all meet up at the dinner afterwards. 

I don’t think you need to explain all of that in the invitation for the other guests.  Just send out the basic rehearsal dinner invite like you planned.  I think using it in the invite is nice since you can save on postage 🙂 and telling them the infomation such as time and place for dinner is perfect.  Scratch the line about contacting the bridal party separately. 

For the bridal party, you can just contact them by phone, email, with the extra details about the rehearsal itself.

It is totally correct to refer to it as the rehearsal dinner. That is what it is.

The wedding party will be invited to the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner.
