Are Rehearsal Dinner Invitations Required?
Proper etiquette does not require that rehearsal dinner invitations be sent out, however it is a good idea to take the time to drop them in the mail. With the hustle and bustle of wedding events, they are sure a helpful and tangible reminder of the time and location for the evening. Keep in mind the bride and groom have plenty on their minds and will be the first ones the family and wedding party turns to for questions.
Customarily the groom's parents host the rehearsal dinner and often involve the bride and groom in planning the event. Selecting rehearsal dinner invitations, location and event details can be a fun way for the bride and future parents-in-law to get better acquainted.
