Our Wedding – Rehearsal Dinner Invitations
Our Wedding – Rehearsal Dinner Invitations
  • We had our rehearsal dinner in the “Show Room” at Dave and Buster’s, and I decided to play off of that theme and create a non-traditional invitation for the evening’s activities.

    The outside of our rehearsal dinner invitation - a Playbill program.

    I used a high-resolution photo of a Broadway Playbill and Photoshopped it to include one of our engagement pictures and our own custom text.  The inside contained the necessary information, but it was set up as a program.  On the back I included a hand-drawn Photoshop map with the address and directions.

    We used black envelopes for these, so I created labels for the mailing and return addresses that looked like show tickets.

    The ticket label for our return address; the mailing address was printed on a similar but larger version of the same label.

    The files for this invitation are also available for free download from my married bio.  If you want me to re-work the design for you with your pictures and information, contact me and we can work something out!

    I am interested in using a similar playbill design for my sister’s wedding shower, any suggestions?

  • Hi, Christina! I sent you an email. Thanks for reading the blog! :)

  • Am interested in using your design for my son’s rehearsal dinner. He and his fiancee are working on their PhD in theater. Would need about 25 Rehearsal Dinner invites. Also would like about 75 ticket type invitations for drinks and appetizers after the rehearsal dinner. Can you help me with this. How much would you charge?
