Do you need wedding rehearsal dinner invitation ideas? Wondering what kind of rehearsal dinner wording is suggested for invites? This is the post for you! Bookmark it, pin it, email it — whatever you gotta do — and keep this info for future use.
When you’re planning a rehearsal dinner, it is a nice touch to send invitations to your guests. For proper wording, consult our guide below.
Rehearsal Dinner Invitation Wording
On your rehearsal dinner invites, you’ll want to include the following wording:
-The Host’s Name or Names
-The Location of Dinner
-The RSVP Date (if applicable) + How to RSVP (phone, email, etc.)
You only need to include the RSVP date and how to RSVP on the rehearsal dinner invitation wording if you need a headcount ahead of the dinner.
GOOD TO KNOW TIP: You can also include this information on your wedding website.
Who Gets an Invitation to Rehearsal Dinner?
Your dinner must include the following guests:
-parents, stepparents, and grandparents of the bride and groom
-siblings of the bride and groom
-all members of your wedding party, along with spouses or dates
-parents of the flower girl, ring bearer, or other little attendants
-the official and his or her spouse
How formal should the rehearsal dinner invitation wording be?
The formality of your rehearsal dinner invites and the dinner itself should be elegant, yet never more formal than the wedding itself.
When do you send rehearsal dinner invitations?
You should send rehearsal dinner invitations as soon as wedding RSVPs are received or three to four weeks prior to the wedding rehearsal date. Of course, wedding party members and family will already know the rehearsal dinner is planned; the invite acts as a formal invitation to the event. (See also: When to Order Wedding Invitations.)
What do you wear to a rehearsal dinner?
Guests can wear casual or formal attire, depending on the formality of the rehearsal dinner. The bride and groom should dress accordingly; brides can wear little white dresses like these as some examples.
