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.
Do I have to host a rehearsal dinner? It’s not a mandatory event, but there are few hindrances to doing so effectively. You have to eat on the night before the wedding so it’s advantageous to eat with friends anyway.
It’s up to you how you make your rehearsal dinner, but you must send out the rehearsal dinner invitations. Some people honestly forget unless they have something to look at to remind them of the fun night ahead. Make sure to mention the type of cuisine, alcoholic drinks served, and desserts because this lures people into the rehearsal dinner that wouldn’t otherwise come. This is a usually a time for jokes, belly laughter, and lots of storytelling. No one should miss the rehearsal dinner. Don’t let them. Send out the invitations per force.
Rehearsal dinner invitations are not the same as wedding invitations. For one, they are more informal and basic. The only details that need to be placed on the custom invitations are the date, time and place of the dinner and who to call if the guests cannot come. The bride and groom can make the invites themselves, by using invitation kits or they can hire the pros to do it for them.
How do I invite the guests? Rehearsal dinner invitations should be sent a few days after the wedding invitations go out. They don’t need to be anything fancy. Rehearsal dinners should be a lot of fun so don’t put too much extra work into the rehearsal dinner invitations.
