In planning your wedding, have you given any thought to rehearsal dinner invitations?

They can come in handy when you are looking to share all the details of your rehearsal gathering with those you are inviting to attend – the wedding party and their significant others, your parents and possibly some close family and friends.  This is undoubtedly a much smaller event than your actual wedding but making sure all those involved know exactly when and where it’s going to happen is still important.

Sending a wedding rehearsal invitation will hopefully eliminate anyone being overlooked or any miscommunication of the details.  Having a special invite will also serve as a reminder to guests of the schedule of events for this night before your wedding.

Even though the rehearsal of the ceremony is most important, the dinner that follows is a great time for everyone to get to know one another as well as relax and have a little fun before your wedding celebration.

Depending on how formal or casual your pre-wedding event will be, there are all different styles of rehearsal invitations from which you can choose.  Keep in mind that the design doesn’t have to match your wedding invitations but instead may reflect the type of rehearsal party you are planning.

If you happen to be having a barbeque party, this Night Before BBQ invitation would be perfect.  Its two-sided design has all the rehearsal details printed on the other side.

With all of today’s styles and designs, bridal shower invitations can be as unique and personal as the invitations to the actual wedding.

To help with your shower invitation planning, here are answers to questions you may already have and a few questions you may not have considered…

Is there a theme for the shower or an overall theme for the wedding? 

Whether it’s a kitchen shower, bridal tea, garden luncheon, brunch, lingerie shower, couples shower, etc., you may be able to find a matching shower invitation design.  The design along with the wording you choose will also reveal to guests the type of shower you are planning.

What information is included on the invitation?

Typically included are the bride’s name (or both names for a couples shower), the names of those hosting the bridal shower, the date and time as well as the name and address of the venue or location.

Knowing how many guests will be attending ahead of time can be helpful in your planning so consider including an RSVP phone number or email address at the bottom of the invite.

For a surprise shower, be sure to also mention that prominently on the invitation so guests know the secrecy of the party.

If the wedding couple has completed gift registries, those stores can be listed on the shower invitation or on a separate insert card.

Shower invitations typically include the bride’s name (or both names if it’s a couples shower), the names of those hosting the shower, the date and time along with the name and address of the location.  To know ahead of time how many guests will be attending, you may want to include an RSVP phone number at the bottom of the invite.  If the shower is meant to be a surprise, be sure to also indicate that on the invitation to alert guests to the secrecy of the event.  Also included with the shower invite can be an enclosure listing the stores where the wedding couple has completed gift registries.

Another great option for making them personal is choosing a style of invitation that includes a card for each guest to fill out and bring with them to the shower for sharing a favorite recipe, special wedding wishes or marriage advice with the couple.

A lot of thought will undoubtedly go into choosing and preparing your wedding invitations but what about inviting certain guests to your rehearsal dinner the night before your wedding.

Sending out a formal rehearsal dinner invitation serves two purposes…

1.  Ensures you don’t forget to invite anyone since word-of-mouth inviting takes the chance of overlooking someone.

2.  Provides guests with all the details of where and when the dinner will take place.  Again, verbal invitations can mean some of the details not being communicated or remembered.

Depending on how formal or casual your pre-wedding event will be, there are all different styles of rehearsal invitations to choose from.

Shown below is just one of our many styles available in different colors to match the rest of your wedding.  Click here to browse them now.
