Themed Rehearsal Dinner Invitations
Throwing a themed rehearsal dinner is a quick, easy way to pull together a cohesive pre-wedding celebration. When we say ‘themed’, we do not mean that you should require guests to dress up in pirate regalia and give out chocolate gold coins for dessert – although you certainly can.
A themed rehearsal dinner can be as simple as choosing a particular type of food to serve to your friends and family. Some of our favorite ideas include Italian, a crawfish or clam bake, and barbecue. These food themes tend to work well for rehearsal dinners since the food encourages family style platters, sharing and a convivial mood. Simply cover the tables in casual paper tablecloths (red and white checkered cloths work well for all three themes) and lots of candles – voila! An instantly quaint, pulled-together look and theme for your rehearsal dinner.
The first step to planning a rehearsal dinner is to pick out the invitations. The rehearsal dinner invitations set the mood for the party that is to come, and communicates the formality, style and essence of the event. Though the rehearsal dinner invitations can mirror the rest of your invitation suite, many couples view the rehearsal dinner as a separate event with its own, more casual invites.
