Rehearsal Dinner Ideas

Coming up with rehearsal dinner ideas is challenging.  Here are three ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

  1. Eat, Drink and Be Married
  2. Use the location of the dinner as your theme
  3. Use your hobbies and interests to inspire the theme

1. Eat, Drink, and Be Married

When you don’t have a theme for your rehearsal dinner, a fun “we’re getting married” theme is perfect. For this rehearsal dinner invitation for a The China Closet client, the design is a plate, and silverware, with a heart on the plate.  The couple’s names are printed on the plate along with a pretty sketched heart ornament.  The invitation is black with white writing with a whimsical font.  The heart ornament is also on the invitation as a separator between the text and the RSVP line.  Matching red envelopes with the same fonts are a fun way to excite your guest before they open the invitation.

2. Location, Location, Location

Using the location as the inspiration for your rehearsal dinner invitation is another great rehearsal dinner idea. Whether the rehearsal is at an Italian Restaurant, a backyard barbecue, or a theme restaurant, any location is a place to get inspiration.  This rehearsal dinner is at The Precinct in Cincinnati, OH. The Precinct is in the former Cincinnati Police Patrol House Number 6. The idea of a police station for the theme of the rehearsal dinner invitation just seems to obvious not to use!  Each invitation has four keystone cops chasing after a couple in a horse-drawn carriage with their dog also on the run. The invitation is extra long and folds in thirds to fit inside a standard A2 envelope.  Blue envelopes have a label that has our cute couple in the carriage with the horse running to the back of the envelope.

3. Your Loves and Hobbies

Another great idea for your rehearsal dinner invitation is to use your loves and hobbies as the theme. You can use how to two of you met, something you love to do together, or maybe even something about your engagement.  Nicole and Derek have a love for beer! The invitation has the look of a beer label. Two bottle caps accompany each invitation for a surprise for the guests.
