Phase 2 Invites Go Out This Week

Posted by Trisha Daniel on August 15, 2018 | 0 comment

Phase Two invites go out this week - here's what you need to know about sponsoring a friend...

If you registered during Phase One, this is how you sponsor a friend for Phase Two:

1) Log in to
2) Go to the "My Friends" tab and click on the "My Friends" link from the dropdown.
3) Enter the first and last name, and email for the friend you would like to sponsor.
4) Submit and you're done! Your friend will receive their invite when Phase Two invites are sent later this week.

1) You only get one sponsor invite, so choose carefully. Make sure the person you invite plans to sign up and attend. Once Phase Two invites are sent, you cannot make changes.
2) If you have already sponsored a friend and need to make any changes, you may do so up until Phase Two invites are sent (invites will most likely be sent Wednesday, August 15).
3) It is very important that you enter the name and email of your friend accurately to ensure the invite is sent to the correct address.
4) If you would like to be on the same bus as your friend, be sure they know which location and bus leader to sign up for. REMEMBER - if your bus is sold out, they will have to select another bus; and if your location sells out, they will have to select another location. We cannot and will not move guests once they have registered.

What are the membership and transaction fees for?

These services allow us to preserve and convey the concept’s values, to sustain our corporate standards by regrouping them within a single network and, to develop technical tools.

Is Dîner en Blanc an illegal activity?

For almost 30 years, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris has been taking place without authorization, in some of the city’s most prestigious sites. The first editions were not easy to pull off. Today, French authorities know that the event is always well organized and that guests are always respectful of public property. Moreover, the event’s photogenic quality helps promote the city’s image as a stylish Metropolis. On the other hand, all events produced according to Le Dîner en Blanc International guidelines require local hosts to acquire the proper authorization, permits, and insurances before proceeding with their event.

How can I participate?

You can register for Le Dîner en Blanc by one of the following three methods: by being part of the Hosts or Leaders’ personal network and getting invited by them (Phase 1); by knowing someone who registers during Phase 1 and asking them to sponsor you for Phase 2; or, by signing up to the waiting list and registering during Phase 3.

What are the key rules of the event?

Le Dîner en Blanc is an evening like no other. Once registration is confirmed, each guests’ participation becomes mandatory, regardless of weather conditions. Participants arrive at a designated departure point with their table, chairs, and picnic materials, and then make their way to the secret location with their Table Leader by chartered bus or organized public transportation. They take all of their belongings with them at the end of the night, including leftovers and trash, and they leave the site as clean as it was upon arrival.

What must guests wear?

All guests must dress elegantly in head-to-toe white. This means no ivory, no off-white, and no beige… Originality is always encouraged, as long as it stays stylish and tasteful.
