Rehearsal Dinner Invitation Wording

The rehearsal dinner invitation wording you choose should match the tone, style and theme of the dinner itself. The rehearsal dinner invitations should include all the information guests need to know: when, where and style of dinner (outdoor BBQ, sushi bar, micro-brewery) so guests know how to dress. Don’t forget to mention the hosts of the event and a reply-by date.

Rehearsal Dinner Invitation Wording

If your rehearsal dinner will be hosted by the groom’s parents and is more traditional, show it in your rehearsal dinner invitation wording. Imagine the Lace on Kraft Petite Rehearsal Dinner Invitation with this wording:

John and Katherine Andersen
invite you to join them
for cocktails, a short round and dinner
following the wedding rehearsal
Friday, October 24 at 6:00 p.m.
Ridgeview Golf Club
Houston, Texas

Please RSVP by October 15

If your dinner is going to be casual, have fun with the rehearsal dinner invitation wording. The Dancing Shoes Petite Rehearsal Dinner Invitation is a great example featuring this wording:

Tomorrow is going to be the
Best Day Ever

Please join us for a Rehearsal Dinner
in honor of
Rachel Chambers and Mason Olson
at Lakeside Brewery
on Friday, October 24
7:00 p.m.
RSVP by October 15

Lily and Brad Olson

Another example of fun Rehearsal Dinner Invitation Wording is the I Do BBQ Rehearsal Dinner Invitation featuring this verse:

Join us for an
I Do BBQ
Rehearsal Dinner Honoring
Shelby Rice and Dylan Beard
Friday, September 7, 2018 • Starting at 7:00 P.M.
15309 Harvard Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio
Hosted by James and Leslie McNeil

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.
