I’m wondering when it’s usual to send rehearsal dinner invites.
We’re having a wedding with many out-of-towners/international guests, so our invites are going out 6 months before. The dinner will be listed as a weekend event on the homepage long before that. Just about everyone will be invited. When should we send the rehearsal invites? When did you send yours?

I received two both as an enclosure in the wedding invitation. They were destination weddings and we all were invited to the rehearsal dinners. One had its own reply card and self addressed envelope. The other one had a response card that had a list of activities and we checked which ones we were going to attend. I have never seen it done seperate but it could be. I would send those out 6-8 weeks ahead. You will have a lot to do the weeks leading up to the wedding.

I have received them separately. For my wedding, I send them with the invitation . . . but they were only to out of state guests (and those helping with the wedding & their families).

I agree with iswimibikeirun, I am sending mine out with the invitation, but only to Out of Town guests/those staying at the hotel, family, and the wedding party. Would hate to bring any one else to two nights in a row of festivities, I’m sure they have other things to do, unless they have nothing else to do–which normally consists of OOT–or are part of the wedding.

We only invited those directly involved in the ceremony (and their SOs), so we mailed our Rehearsal Dinner invites a month before the wedding. The RSVP ndate is this upcoming Sunday, and we’ve only received 1 response (mailed 8 invites). My Mother asked me, “Do I need to RSVP?” Well yes, Mother, if you want to have food to eat, you need to RSVP with your meal choices. Aye yeesh!

I sent them out about a month before but we are having a causal type of rehearsal dinner with the wedding party and few Out of Town guests.
