Should You Send Rehearsal Dinner Invitations?
Do you need to send out invitations for the rehearsal dinner? Today we are tackling this common question in our next part of our rehearsal series. The easy answer: you can send invitations if you would like to, but mailed invitations are optional. If your budget allows, we recommend you send invitations; however, if your budget is already maxed out we think a personal phone call to each guest will work just as well.
If you decide to send invitations for the rehearsal dinner…
What to Include on the Invitation
The rehearsal dinner invitation should include where it held, the date, and the time. For the rehearsal itself, you will want to make sure your rehearsal guests know where the rehearsal is held and what time he or she will need to arrive. You will need to also indicate anything he or she needs to bring with them for rehearsal. Finally, be sure to invite the guest to the dinner afterward and mention the name of the venue and location so he or she can plan ahead.
When to Send Invitations
Rehearsal dinner invitations should be sent by the host right after the wedding invitations are mailed (approximately four weeks before the rehearsal dinner).
What Style of Invitations to Send?
Your rehearsal dinner invitations are not as formal as a wedding invitation but should reflect the tone and theme of your wedding.
