Another Invite

Last week I sent out our rehearsal dinner invitations! While not completely necessary, I really wanted to send out invites for the rehearsal dinner so there was no question as to who was invited and to make sure everyone knew what the plan was for dinner. Also, since our RD will be at Mr. M’s parents’ house on a lake outside of town, I wanted to make sure people knew how to get there!

I found my inspiration for the invitation design a few months ago, and even put them together a few weeks ahead of when I needed to send them! I was pretty proud of myself of being so on top of these.

The invitations were made with the same ruby Stardream metallic cardstock, green flourish paper, and white linen paper we’ve been using throughout all of our paper projects. I added a teal blue ribbon to tie in the ribbon we had on our wedding invites, and used the same fonts we used on those, as well. We opted to use kraft envelopes for these, simply because I love kraft paper. Mr. M printed the addresses on the envelopes using our printer, which ended up being the most frustrating step in the whole process. Let’s just say our printer does not share my love of kraft paper!

Printer difficulties aside, this was the stationery project that I enjoyed the most. This may or may not have something to do with the fact that there were actually a manageable amount of invites that needed to be made! 32 RD invites versus 215 wedding invitations is a HUGE difference when DIYing (and even when not DIYing, for that matter)!

Did anyone else send out rehearsal dinner invites? Did they make life easier for your guests?

    These are so cute! I just threw my RD invites together! Looks like you really went all-out for these (though I totally know what you mean about how different it is when you have so many less to send out).

    I’m planning on sending them out. And I can’t wait because I’ll probably put more detail into them and have more fun since the number won’t be so outrageous!
