When we say the word dinner, we almost always associate it with the evening meal itself, but it actually extends beyond that definition. The more appropriate term that should be used to refer to a meal or snack that takes place in the evening would be “supper,” since dinner actually stands for any meal that occurs from noon to nighttime. In addition to this, the meaning of the word can also vary depending on the culture, because some people take dinner as any meal of any size eaten at any time of the day.

As mentioned earlier, dinner events can be held after a wedding rehearsal, which is something that not all people observe. The invitation card designs used for this kind of dinner event work almost as similar as the ones used for the actual wedding ceremony, but with a significantly fewer number of people. Usually, the attendees for rehearsal dinner will only include the to-be-wedded couple, their entourage, and probably a few other guests.Breakfast Invitation Designs
