Okay, we are currently planning not to have a rehearsal dinner, not even the night before the wedding. Due to the fact that 5 members of the bridal party (3 being kids) live on LI they are not going to make it to NJ at a decent hr on a Thursday night. We were thinking of having a rehearsal luncheon the weekend before but then we run into the issue of the groom's family who currently live in PA & FL& who are going to the wedding on 11/11/11 but I don't know if they want to spend the extra days visiting us before the wedding, lol.
I just don't know what to do, it's not like we actually need a rehearsal since we're not getting married in a church so basically we all just need to know how to walk down a aisle.
So I'm asking is it okay not to have a rehearsal dinner but have a day after wedding luncheon for the families & bridal party guests?
