@NatureLoverBride:  I think you should design it if you want to. Only you guys will know who actually designed it. I would just double check with her that it’s ok, but since you are planning it anyway, I would think it should be ok. I also think that RSVPing to you should be fine, I wouldn’t really think anything of it, but i’m also not great at knowing etiquette rules either lol

@NatureLoverBride:  I think it’s fine for you to design it, just run it by her. I mean, if she’s not into design she’d probably just have some random etsy person do it, right? So what’s the difference?

As far as the RSVP goes, though, I think it should be to her, not you. It’s a little weird to have to RSVP to the guest of honor.

@MexiPino:  I agree that I would find it a little weird for the bride and groom to accept the RSVPs to the rehearsal dinner the groom’s parents are hosting.

Talk to your Mother-In-Law and see what she thinks of you designing the invitations! It’s a little out of the ordinary but I don’t see why it would be a problem.

@Becs:  +1

 

I would basically design it and then give her options like two different design elements to choose from, and the wording. 

Since they are hosting (though you are planning) I would have the rsvps go to them, since she’d love to help out I’m sure she wouldn’t mind forwarding that info on to you! 🙂

I agree with PPs, I think it’s fine you design it (I designed mine, but I ran it by my mom, who is paying with FI’s parents). Just give her a heads up first
