- Wedding: December 2007
I am not sure where else this belongs so the beehive seems like a good place 🙂
I have finally finished our invitations and they are nearly ready to go apart from a last minute check! I have just booked our dinner for after the rehearsal/night before the wedding and I want to include an invite to the people that are invited in their invites.
We are only having parents/FIs brother (his best man) and our bridal party & their other halves/children so we have about 20 people coming in total. It is very informal and just to say thanks for all of their help during our planning, we are having it at a restaurant opposite the hotel where our reception is as our wedding is out of town so we can’t do it at home.
Anyway, I am stuck for ideas on the wording for invites for the dinner. I was thinking of just a little card insert into the main insert either handwritten or saying something like
You are warmly invited to an informal pre-wedding dinner on date at restaurant name.
I don’t want to put the rehearsal info on this as we aren’t expecting all of our bridal party to come to the rehearsal, but would still love them to come to the dinner. Does this wording sound ok, or do you have any other ideas please?
I don’t know if I need to put any more info as we don’t often have rehearsal dinners over here in the UK that I am aware of so I want people to know it is just an informal thanks and relaxing dinner before the wedding. Do I have to say that or is this ok? I also don’t want people to feel like they have to come to the dinner even if they are part of our bridal party as not everyone is in town the night before and some may just arrive the day of the wedding but I don’t know how to say this.
