The wedding shower went off without a hitch and that bachelorette weekend was an epic success (if you do say so yourself). Now, there's only one party left to throw before the big day arrives: the rehearsal dinner! If you haven't chosen your wedding rehearsal dinner invitations yet, do yourself a favor and don't wait until the last minute. You'll want to stick those envelopes in the mail as soon as you've nailed down the who, what, when and where of the night—even if you think your wedding party already knows the drill.

Sending out formal party invitations for your rehearsal dinner won't just keep your wedding party up-to-date with all the important details of the night and answer their FAQs (like whether they can bring a plus-one). It will also head off any unnecessary headaches from older relatives who don't live their lives via text (because you just know you're going to get some confused calls from Grandma once the date inches closer). Plus, your rehearsal dinner invites are a great way to capture the look, style and feel you want the night to have, which will get your bridesmaids, groomsmen and family members amped about all the fun wedding events to come (and that's really what this is all about, right?).

Need some inspiration to help get you started? Browse through some of our favorite rehearsal dinner invites below—including picks from our very own wedding stationery collection, The Knot Invitations.
