A wedding ceremony is, without a doubt, the most important event surrounding a wedding. To make that ceremony perfect, many couples have a rehearsal dinner. Rehearsal dinners are not mandatory, but many couples use them to rehearse for their big day and to celebrate with friends.
All they need to do is go to the website, pick out a design from the hundreds of invitation ideas, fill out the appropriate details and send. Or they can enlist the help of invitation kits to get invitation ideas and then have them printed. The couple can send out the invites or have the printer send them out. All the couple needs to do is supply the names and addresses of the guests.
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.
Layered Shower and Rehearsal Dinner Invitations: Although almost everyone focuses exclusively on the wedding invitations, there are many other events that require invitations. Layered shower or rehearsal invitations can be coordinated with the wedding invitation or be a completely different style. So you may have a more formal pocket folder wedding invitation and then compliment it with a more casual, layered rehearsal dinner invitation or bride and groom shower invitation. Either way, you have a creative look and feel to your wedding events.
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.
