Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

For those of you that plan on having a rehearsal dinner, are you sending invitations for the rehearsal dinner separately or are you including them in with the wedding invitations?  If you're sending separate invitations are they going to look similar or be in the same color scheme as your wedding invitations or save the dates?  TIA

    My fmil, is planning the rehearsal dinner. So invites will be sent out seperate. They were ordered from vistaprint, which is also where we ordered our photo cards from. So they match the photo cards, but not the invites. Both are on the same color scheme as the whole wedding, though.  HTH

    Not at all. Thats was my plan as well. But the fmil is in charge and is paying. So if she says invites, than invites it is. lol

    My FMIL is taking care of the RD. If she wants to send out invites for that she can, but as of now, it's just the people that are participating in the rehearsal. The only person that's not participating that'll be there is the minister's wife.

    I did postcard invites using the same style as the wedding invitations and STD cards using the alternate wedding color (invites were crimson; RD invites are black).  I ordered them from the same company, 123print.com, and they were super cheap.  Mailing them separately.  Wedding party and OOT guest will receive the RD invites.

    I am sending out separate invitations to the rehearsal dinner and the day-after breakfast.  The invitation will be within the same color scheme, but will be a different look altogether.

    For those only invited to the day-after brunch, I will send a separate invite specifically for this.
