Bowling Rehearsal Dinner - wording help PLEASE! :)
Well, the rehearsal dinner plans we STRESSING me out and we finally got them figured out. Thank Goodness. We will be having a bowling party for about 70 people. It is super cost effective and will be a great way to include all the out of town guests without it seeming like a second wedding.

I was wondering if you all might help me with some cute wording for the bowling rehearsal dinner invitations. It is being hosted by my father-in-law to be and his wife. Anyone have an idea? All help is very appreciated.

I am so happy and relieved to have this part settled!

if you google 'bowling party invitations' there are some cute sayings (look at the images):
'roll on over, there's no time to spare, we're going bowling and we want you there'
'let the good times roll'
'strike up a good time at....'
'let's have a ball and get the good times rolling...'

"Before you bring your dancing shoes for the reception,
Bring your bowling shoes for the rehearsal party!"

You could give out superlatives...for example:

Most Gutter Balls
Most Strikes
Gobble Gobble (for someone who bowls a Turkey/3 strikes in a row)
Stuck with Splits (for that person who kept getting splits)
Nine's Enough (for someone who kept getting nine's, but no spares/strikes)
Pick Up Master (for someone who's really good at picking up spares)

Etc...

This is fun :) Sorry I'm not more help for the wording with the invitations, but I'll keep thinking...oh and how cute are these cookies?! And the cake?

@Jennifer - I just found that too...it's so adorable with the bride and groom as pins!! I also like this cake...

You could also have the invitations double as their score cards...so one side is the score card for the game(s) and the other side is the invitation itself?

Also, for favors (if you're doing them), you could make team tee shirts for everyone...just have them register as a team when they RSVP. It would be fun to see what kind of team names people come up with :)

Wow! You ladies found such good stuff! I have been googleing a lot and haven't seen this stuff. I LOVE the bride and groom pins, I love the team names too - I really wanted to get custom bowling shirts made for the bridal party and parents... but they are a little out of my league (pun intended ;)

@Caroline - haha I love puns!

I also like this invitation...

Also, you should include somewhere on the invite to not forget their socks!! You could even somehow make that the theme of the invite...could be cute!

I am in LOVE with all of these ideas!!!!

You could always get some mens undershirts (package of 3 or 5) and DIY iron on transfer and make your own tees.

If you want any help designing in vistaprint on their free items let me know.

I'm doing custom shirts for the rehearsal. I just got tee's from Hobby Lobby (either when they are on sale or with a coupon...so they are about $2-3 each), a stencil and some glitter fabric paint. Here's a couple pics. First one has the stencil and "mother of the bride" in progress.

Those look great Jennifer!

Hayley - that would be awesome, have you ordered Tshirts from there before? I remember a bride saying she didn't care for the quality.

Katie - Thank you for typing that out - I thought it said complimentary bowling and was a little confused. haha

Love this idea!

I was thinking of some play on words like, "After we finish lining up, let's go knock 'em down!" ......but I can't make it come out not-cheesy.

Love "Let the good times roll".

I want a bowling party rehearsal dinner! How fun!!!

There is no time to " spare" ...roll on over to our rehearsal dinner....
I like this idea of a bowling rehearsal dinner. My FH is a PBA bowler and I spent my waking moment at a bowling alley so I can relate!

I got my mom a tee for christmas (mens tee for comfort)
It is just your typical "Haines" tee. I got a picture on it and thought it was ok.
Nothing special, but it was free.

I think Jennifer had a great idea for DIY. Kinda what I was thinking. They do sell iron on sheets that you can design yourself... I'll find a link to them.


I was thinking more of the invites, if you wanted to get you invites on some kind of free VP item, I could help you design that.

AHHH! Gotcha!

I will look into those options. I will def. consider the tshirts - I do love puff paint!

The invites are covered - my step dad is designing all the print material for the wedding and has agreed to do these as well. YAY!

I am excited to send him these great ideas!

Glad Step Dad has it covered. Show us what you two come up with?

Do it Yourself: Iron-on Transfer - office max carries them
Avery Stretchable Fabric Transfers Iron-on transfers - 5 sheet(s)

Inkjet printer (do not use a laser printer), copy paper (for test printing), iron-on transfer paper (dark, bright or light), an iron, T-shirt or other fabric (minimum 50 percent cotton) Remember to match the iron-on transfer paper to the color of the shirt you will use. Flip or reverse the image or text, if needed. A mirror can be used to see how the image will appear on the shirt.

Have fun!
