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.
Some people like to jazz up their invitations with themes. For example, if Italian is on the menu, then they will use an Italian-style theme. If French is up for the night, then French-style invitations are in order. This gives people an idea of what cuisine to expect, and gets them mentally prepared for the festive occasion ahead. Traditionally, rehearsal dinner invitations are a lot less cumbersome and expensive than the wedding invitations themselves, and they’re sent out a few weeks ahead of the dinner.
What happens at a rehearsal dinner? There are toasts, speeches, expressions of thanks, and other games and trivialities to entertain the guests. Everything is informal and even jokes are in good taste. Sometimes, the couple gets royally roasted. That’s always fun!
There is something about actually choosing, addressing and mailing out your invitations that makes your wedding concrete–this is where you know you are really getting married. And this is where your guests will begin to feel what kind of day it is going to be. So, take your time and make this part of the wedding process creative, enjoyable and bonding for all.
