Long story short, FI and are paying for our wedding entirely on our own, but my parents offered awhile back to pay for the rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, my relationship with my parents has been deteriorating over the past year or two and as the wedding has gotten closer things have only gotten worse (it's been emotionally draining, but I'm beginning to come to terms with it). Needless to say, FI and I don't want to feel like we owe my parents anything (not that they'd ask us to pay them back, but you know what I mean), so we've decided to scrap the original rehearsal dinner plans and tell my parents that we've got the RD covered.
Originally our RD was going to be at Bahama Breeze, but FI and I are scaling back now that we're paying for it so we've decided to just do a backyard BBQ. That being said, I've found plenty of RD invitation wording for situations that involve someone other than the couple hosting, but I can't seem to find anything for when the couple is hosting the dinner.
My brain is fried, so does anyone have suggestions for complete invitation wording that includes information about the rehearsal as well as the rehearsal dinner, and that can be used when the couple is hosting?
ETA: I posted my question on the Invites and Paper board and someone suggested that I just buy those generic fill-in-the-blank cards from any random card shop. Honestly, those fill-in-the-blank cards make me cringe because they remind me of a kid's birthday party, regardless of how elegant the scrollwork on them may be. Plus, I have a deal through Living Social for VistaPrint, so it'd be cheaper to make the invitations via the site than to buy them in a card shop.
TIA for your help!
