The invitations needn’t be long or wordy. No more than 50 words are really needed for the message itself. It’s more appropriate to think of the message as a verse or short poetic stanza. Even a haiku will do. A typical invitation is composed of the following elements: the hosting party’s names (usually the parents of the groom), the bride and groom’s names, i.e., for such and such rehearsal dinner, and the day, date, time, and location. Sometimes, the message comes in an envelope, but, oftentimes, the card – colorful, illustrated, and festive – carries the message all by itself. It resembles a post card in that respect – except the message is on the side with the picture, and not on the backside. Online stores allow you to customize the card before you purchase. A simple pull-down menu will let you select the font style, font color, and background pattern or image. You can even input the text you want for each line of the message. It’s completely customizable. These are perfect if you can’t find the right card at the local bridal store, and you’re in a pinch for time.
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.
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.
Each year, there are thousands of weddings that take place. Many of these weddings are planned by the individuals getting married. While planning your own wedding is popular, there are many other couples who make the decision to hire a wedding planner. Each way is popular and successful, but there are some things that you may not know without the assistance of a professional wedding planner.
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.
