It’s the night before the big event, and you want to thank all the guests that have volunteered time, effort, and money to make your wedding into the spectacular event that it is. There’s no better way to do than to host a rehearsal dinner replete with all the best food, wine, and rehearsal dinner invitations. These invitations can be light, fun, and informal – because that’s how the rehearsal dinner is supposed to be.
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.
Wedding invitations are a big deal. Invitations are keepsakes people treasure the remainder of their lives. The invitation also helps set the stage for the overall wedding experience. The rehearsal dinner is an important part of the wedding, so the rehearsal dinner invitations are also a big deal. That invitation will also become a cherished keepsake.
Who plans the rehearsal dinner? Who sends out the rehearsal dinner invitations? Historically, traditionally, and most often, the groom’s mother handles all the preparations. It gives the mother-in-law a chance to flaunt her tastes and preferences, and it gives her a big hand in the wedding that she may have been aching for all along. It’s up to you, the couple, really. Couples should make this decision with some allowance for creative control to the person they cede the preparations to.
Layered Wedding Invitations: Very simply, a layered invitations has a colored backing, and a stock card that can be held together with a ribbon. Some companies have a variety of ribbons to choose from, others provide a standard choice. You simply print out your invitation on your home computer using the templates provided, and then attach the invitation to the colored backing using the ribbon. For a more secure and finished look, you can also use glue dots to attach the two cards and use the ribbon as a decoration. You can add RSVP cards and Direction Inserts as needed. Layered Invitations are perfect for simple and small weddings, or larger weddings where you want a casual feel.
