Most weddings include a rehearsal, a time when the wedding party and the couple have a chance to run through the order of events and practice how everything will unfold. Following the rehearsal, many couples choose to have a special dinner that gives them a chance to spend time with friends and family. If you're planning a rehearsal dinner, CVS Photo can help you invite guests in the perfect way. You can choose from a diverse assortment of rehearsal dinner invitations and customize your favorite design in a matter of minutes.
Before you send out your rehearsal dinner invitations, you need to put together your guest list for the event. Anyone who will play a role in the wedding should be invited to the dinner, including the wedding party, the officiant, and any other friends and family members who are a part of the ceremony like readers or candle lighters. It's also customary to invite the immediate family of the bride and groom. Some people also choose to include out-of-town wedding guests.
While you're free to send your rehearsal dinner invitations whenever works best for you, the cards should always go out after your wedding invitations. At a minimum, you should mail them four to six weeks before the rehearsal dinner to ensure that your guests reserve the time to attend.
Custom rehearsal dinner invitations include text-only and photo designs, so you can choose the style that you prefer. If you have an established theme for the event, you can look for invitations that compliment it. Otherwise, you may want to select rehearsal dinner invites that coordinate with the style of your other wedding stationery like your wedding invitations and wedding thank you cards.
