Invitations

Besides the obvious main invite (names, date, place), RSVP card, what are the other important things to have with your invites?

For my brother’s wedding invitations, we did the main invitation and added corner copy to state “reception to follow.” The inner envelope had each invited person’s name, and the outer envelope had their mailing address. To save on the expense of additional stamps, the RSVP card included an email address to RSVP to. If your guests are local, that’s all you really need. If the majority of guests are traveling, an information card would be ideal (or you can utilize a website).

Rehearsal Dinner

Are name place cards required with table numbers?

It really depends on the formality of your wedding. Some of my brides opt for a casual barbeque with open seating. The hosts of the rehearsal dinner would welcome everyone in attendance, give blessing, eat, and celebrate.
