Please – don’t let your rehearsal dinner invitations down by printing them with not-that-exciting wording. Sure, you could just say, “You’re invited to dinner after our wedding rehearsal,” but that would be boring. And you so don’t want boring when it comes to your rehearsal dinner.
Your rehearsal dinner invitation wording should match the tone, style and theme you’ve chosen for the dinner itself. It should include all the information guests need to know: when, where, kind of dinner (grilling outside, sushi bar, micro-brewery) so guests know how to dress. They’ll also need to know the hosts of the event and the date to reply by.
If your rehearsal dinner will be hosted by the groom’s parents and is more traditional, show it in your rehearsal dinner invitation wording. Example:
John and Katherine Andersen
invite you to join them
for cocktails, a short round and dinner
following the wedding rehearsal
Friday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m.
Ridgeview Golf Club
Please RSVP by October 15
If your dinner is going to be casual, have fun with the rehearsal dinner invitation wording. Example:
This has been brewing for a while
Lindsay + Ryan
After our wedding rehearsal,
join us at Lakeside Brewery
for local beer and lots of cheer
Friday, October 24
RSVP by October 15
Remember: all those invited to the rehearsal must be invited to the rehearsal dinner. If you have special friends who aren’t involved in the wedding or out-of-town guests with nothing to do the night before, it’s a great idea to include them in your dinner, too.
