Budget and Bonding: Buying and putting together your own layered invitations both saves you money and can be a great way for your families or wedding party to form closer relationships. As this particular invitation is easy to do, it’s a great way to have a party where people can get to know each other while doing an easy but important task. And as building community is important in marriage, you are beginning to build the foundation of your married life with your wedding invitations.
I don’t mean just the menu, but the whole event. Some couples may want a formal multi-course meal with a large guest list; others may want a quiet and cozier celebration. By talking with them, you can see if what they want is what you can afford and adapt accordingly. Even though it may be your party to plan, it is after all their celebration. So work together with the kids and with some careful planning you can host the dinner of their dreams.
Should the couple decide to have one, rehearsal dinners are meant to give the couple a chance to relax before the big day. It gives them a chance to just sit back and appreciate everything they’ve done and everything their family and friends has done for them. A rehearsal dinner will also give the couple the chance to talk to the people who matter the most. Just don’t forget to send out the rehearsal dinner invitations.
Rehearsal dinner invitations are usually necessary when the dinner is going to have more than 24 guests. Typical dinners usually consist of about a dozen members of the bride’s family and a dozen members of the groom’s family. Simply letting people know is sufficient. However, more guests than that require personalized, fun invitations.
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.
