My FMIL and FFIL are graciously hosting our rehearsal dinner. Because the wedding is being held in my hometown in the midwest and my FI's family is entirely from the east coast, my FMIL has decided to invite all out of town guests to the rehearsal dinner and instructed me to do the same.
My preliminary guest list for the RD is my bridesmaids, my immediate family, grandparents, and all aunts and uncles (all are from within two hours of the wedding city and most will already be in town Friday night). I do have some guests from the east coast too who I know will come into town Friday night if they attend the wedding, but for some reason, I feel uncomfortable inviting them to the rehearsal dinner. They are not as close to me as my family, so I don't want them to wonder why they've been invited to what is traditionally an intimate, family-oriented event. However, I don't also want them to wonder why they were not invited when the rest of the hotel is empty Friday night (all but two OOT guests are staying at the same hotel).
Should I go all or nothing or just invite my WP and family?
