Rehearsal dinner invitations can be sent alongside the wedding invitations to save money, but they really do deserve their own mailing because rehearsal dinners are separate, special events.
The cost of ordering online wedding rehearsal invitations will vary. Each individuals or company who specializes in making them will likely charge a different price. While it cannot be guaranteed, it is possible to obtain a discount when placing multiple orders with one company. This means that if you purchase rehearsal dinner invitation sets with traditional wedding ceremony set, you may be able to receive a discount. This discount is not always offered, but it may be something worth looking into.
The rehearsal dinner is a time for the closest guests to kind of take stock of all their preparations up to that point. They’re able to get the big picture, and after a few drinks, give toasts, speeches, and acknowledgements. No one should be excluded from the big night. Even out-of-town guests will take part in the wedding rehearsal so they should be included in the rehearsal dinner. However, if budget is an issue, then only a few friends will be invited to the special rehearsal dinner. These small, intimate occasions are usually at someone’s house and not at a festive banquet hall. All cultures have different practices regarding the celebratory dinners of the night before.
Rehearsal dinner invitations invite family, friends, and out-of-town guests to the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner is hosted after the wedding rehearsal, usually the night before the wedding ceremony. It’s a time for a close-knit group of people, usually just the bride, groom, and their immediate families to kick back and have a good time. However, if friends and out-of-town guests are coming to, it’s appropriate to send out rehearsal dinner invitations. These needn’t be elaborate or spectacular. Whimsical, succinct, clear messages are best in this situation.
There are a lot of ways to print and design these. Often the same artist who designs the wedding invitations designs these. It’s probably the best way. It’s a lot easier to deal with one vendor. Also important is a consistent design. The design remains the same, or can be a kind of riff on the main wedding invitation design, if the same artist or designer is involved with both. Consider too the element of bulk discount. The vendor may offer a discount if all the work is given to them. However it’s the groom’s parents who usually oversee the reception dinner. Letting them oversee a new design might make them happier. A different design may also compliment the original wedding invitations.
