So we are getting married on Saturday August 7th. The rehersal for the ceremony is Friday August 6th and the groom's mother is hosting the rehersal dinner at her house. However, she wants to have the dinner the Thursday before the wedding because she says she will be too tired the night before the wedding. She has already sent out the invitiations with this information on them. The major issue here is, the groom cannot be there on Thursday night. He has a commitment that he cannot get out of and I am uncomfortable going to a rehersal dinner for me and my fiance alone. I think that is a very strange request to be made of me. If we move the rehersal dinner to Friday night (the night of the rehersal and the night before the wedding), both the bride and groom will be there, not to mention, out of town guests and wedding party who work and cannot come into town until Friday. HELP!
