    No, yu don't have to give everyone a gift.
    Thank you gifts are given to your attendants, readers, ushers, anyone who has a role in the wedding ceremony. You don't have to give the gifts at the rehearsal dinner, if you feel uncomfortable about not having a gift for everybody.

    Oh good gracious- you are a generous soul! No- you don't have to give everyone a gift- mostly likely you will be giving them a take-home gift at the wedding.  At the dinner it is customary to gift small token gifts to the bridal party as a thank you for all their help.
