We’re inviting all of our out of town guests as well as our bridal party. Do I just mail them the same day that I send the wedding invite, or do I wait for the RSVP to come back and then send rehersal dinner invites? I don’t want people to make travel arrangements for only the day of and then find out later that they are invited to a party the day before.

Are you inviting more than your bridal party & immediate families to the rehearsal dinner? If not, I think your guests might assume that there’s a rehearsal dinner that they need to be free for, since it’s a pretty well known thing that there’s a rehearsal before the big day.
If you’re inviting more, then I would just include either that or maybe a rehearsal STD that matches your invite suite in the mix, so when they get the invite, they also get a note to watch out for a real rehearsal invite.

Definitely send them together…in the same envelope if that’s possible!

I am sending mine together in the same envelope with the invitations!

I’m curious about this too—FI’s mother is sending ours directly so they didn’t go in with our invites, and I don’t think she’s planning to send them till next month (though the info is on our website so out-of-towners already know about it; not worried from the travel planning perspective).
I was wondering whether we should send welcome dinner invites to those guests who’ve already RSVPed “no,” though. We had a few (all family) we knew weren’t coming after the Save-The-Date Cards, but sent them wedding invitations anyway. But adding yet another invite to that when they’ve already said they’re not coming seems weird, and I imagine we’ll have more Out of Town “no” people by next month now that people are getting the formal invites.
Should they get welcome dinner invites anyway? Thanks!
