When you’re planning for your wedding, it might feel like it takes forever to pick out your wedding invitations! Every detail has to be perfect, from the color to the shape to the wording, even the envelope they come in. Luckily every other aspect of wedding planning isn’t so fraught with importance!
The evening before your wedding brings one of the most enjoyable events of your wedding weekend: the rehearsal dinner. Traditionally following the wedding rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner is a time to relax and enjoy a meal with the members of your wedding party. When you’re choosing your wedding invitations, be sure to choose lovely rehearsal dinner invitations too!
Since they lack the formality of wedding invitations, you can get a little clever with the invitations to your rehearsal dinner. Fun options include striped invitations with glittery accents, cute dinner plate designs, or invites with detachable “Eat, drink, and be married!” cards. You can match them to your wedding color scheme, or go all out with your choice of mix and match colors.
For less formal pre-wedding events, like ladies’ luncheons or dinner parties, try invitations with quirky champagne buckets or floral prints. You can get even more creative with dinner party invitations, which need not contain the formality of rehearsal dinner or wedding invitations.
Whichever invitations you choose for your events, you should be sure to take advantage of the more relaxed atmosphere of pre-wedding occasions. Sit down, enjoy your time with your friends and family, and eat well!
