When you’re planning a wedding it can seem like you must keep track of a thousand things all at once – and your to-do list is 1,000 entries long. With so much to plan, it can be easy to forget to print wedding rehearsal dinner invitations. The following details why you need them plus how you can make your own wedding rehearsal dinner invitations fast and easy.

Why you need wedding rehearsal dinner invitations

You’re already printing wedding invitations, but your rehearsal dinner information isn’t included since it’s reserved for the wedding party and close family members. Even though you’re close with the people who will be attending your rehearsal dinner, you should still print rehearsal dinner invitations for their benefit so they can quickly remember details of the dinner – and so they don’t forget the dinner!

You can make rehearsal dinner invitations resemble your formal wedding invitations; or, print them as save-the-date cards to be used as quick refrigerator references. Either way, the main idea is to help your rehearsal dinner guests remember to show up, at the right place, and at the right time.

What to put on wedding rehearsal dinner invitations

You can customize your wedding rehearsal dinner invitations however you’d like; however, you’ll want to be sure to include the following:

  • Bride and groom names
  • Hosts’ names
  • Date
  • Time
  • Location (for both the dinner and the rehearsal venue)
  • Menu
  • Dress code (formal/informal, etc.)
  • Special instructions (whether guests should bring anything)
  • Directions, if needed
  • RSVP directions

You might also consider including the following:

  • Invitation text (“you are cordially invited to attend…”
  • Thank-you text
  • A favorite quote
  • Menu options (if available)

How to design and print your own wedding rehearsal dinner invitations

If you want to make your wedding rehearsal dinner invitations extra-special, you can create your own custom design that matches the wedding theme or the couple’s unique personalities. Your design doesn’t have to be super-formal; it can be fun and light, or it can be sophisticated and meaningful.

  • Add your own custom text
  • Upload your own photos
  • Drag and drop to adjust the layout
