While rehearsal dinner invitations don’t have to be as formal as your wedding invites, guests who already have a list of dates, locations and times to remember will appreciate the gesture of a paper or emailed invitation. If your wedding rehearsal will take place right before the dinner, simply list the time and place of the rehearsal in one corner of the invitation and the time and place of the dinner in the other. If you choose to send a separate invitation for your rehearsal dinner, send them out shortly after your wedding invitations to help everyone keep their schedules straight and ensure timely RSVPs.
