I’m obsessed with paper and paper products. I know there are some other ladies out there like Miss Archer and Miss Treasure who are totally in the same boat as me: completely obsessed with paper. I’ve already sent out our wedding invitations and our rehearsal BBQ invitations, but there was one last thing I knew I had to make: ceremony rehearsal “invitations.”
Now, when I googled “ceremony rehearsal invitations” there were NO hits that had anything relevant. I get that it’s not really a common thing, because usually you can just cover it in the rehearsal dinner invitation. Well, our ceremony rehearsal isn’t even on the same day as our rehearsal BBQ. Because our venue is SO busy and has weddings booked every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer…we can’t have our ceremony rehearsal on Friday. So, Thursday night it is. I have been getting a lot of confused questions from the parents and the bridal party, so I figured a printed “ceremony rehearsal information sheet” would be a good thing.
Now I have to say, this DIY was the easiest DIY I have done for the wedding. I picked up this $10 DIY Gartner Studios invitation kit from Michaels.
All I had to do was download the template and fill in what I wanted it to say (which is way easier than invitation design in Adobe Illustrator!):
And print it out using the small white cards:
The invitation pack came with some small ribbons to attach the small white sheets to the die-cut backings. It looks super cute!

Now, I realize that this is one of those useless DIYs that won’t really have a big impact on the day. But like I said, I love paper, it cost $10 ($15 if including mailing costs) and it literally took me a half hour to make ten of them. I think it will be worth it in the end to avoid the confusion of having the actual rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on different days.
Did you do any DIYs that seemed “useless,” but you knew that they would make a difference in the end?
