how do I word rehearsal dinner invites. My FI's parents are hosting, but I am sending out a little card to invite the people who need to be there. We are having an official church rehearsal and then a fun mexican fiesta dinner at a great place in Napa.

Any ideas?

    are you looking for something casual and fun or more formal wording?

      I would do something like:

      "The grooms parents, Mr. & Mrs. Groom, host a fiesta style rehearsal dinner at the Fantastic Napa Restaurant, such and such date & time. Please join us in the pre-wedding festivities."

          I guess the question is are you inviting everyone who's invited to the wedding to the RD or just a select group of people? If it's everyone then I would add a separate card (as seen above) into the invite. If however you are having a small RD with just family and the wedding party then I actually like the idea of doing a a separate invite... just to keep things simple when stuffing envelopes!

          we will be sending out about 30 invites to the rehearsal dinner. Large wedding party, plus lots of little kids invovled in the wedding.
          Thanks for your help ladies.

            Tammy changed it for me after all the crazy stuff last week since my future last name was on my username.

            What do you all think of this wording for the invites?

            Before they can walk down the aisle
            Christine
            &
            Will
            must first practice their wedding waltz

            Please join us for the wedding rehearsal
            St. John’s Lutheran Church

            Then on a little insert card I will include the following

            Don & Terri Hull
            invite you to a fiesta
            at Compadres Mexican Grill
            6539 Washington Street
            Yountville, CA
