What is the best way to let the select guests invited to the rehearsal dinner their invited?We haven't even set a guest list or picked a place but i was wondering how others did it?

    Do you mean how to let them know they're invited? We conveyed this via word-of-mouth to bridal party members and immediate family, and then we sent out invites to everyone who was invited a few weeks before the wedding.

    We used mypunchbowl.com for my brother's RD that our family planned. It worked out well because we were able to keep up with who is coming. Plus they can use the discussion board which is a plus! :D

    My MIL sent out invitations to everyone invited to the rehearsal dinner. Honestly, it was completely unnecessary since we only invited immediate family & the bridal party....

    It really depends on who you intend to invite, and the formality of the event. My FMIL wanted a very formal event with lots of people and is therefore ordering formal invitations. If we would have had the beer and bbq for close family and bridal party that I wanted, we probably would have just either done word of mouth, or simple notes/invitations, or maybe even evites to let everyone know.

    We're doing a formal reception and, therefore, wanted the RD to be simple and just about our families/bridal party.  So we're just inviting people via word of mouth.  ILs left it up to me and FI and it was just one less thing for us to have to worry about.  I think my grandmother had other ideas about how it should've been done but whatever.  That's my new favorite word, btw...whatever!

    I sent a mass email out to those you were invited with time and directions etc...

    I'm really late to the game but bored. I let my girls know informally through my newsletter. Then I sent out invites a few weeks before for my MIL. Just as with our invites, some family didn't respond and later told my dad that they didn't need to come because they weren't in the wedding party. Um - if you got an invite, we want you to be there. There again, they RSVP'd that they were coming to the wedding then didn't show up.
