What do you think??

So ... we are going to NY next month for a wedding that FI is in.  He just texted me a little bit ago and said that the groom told him they aren't allowed to bring dates to the Rehearsal dinner .... ???  I understand that it's a smaller wedding with only bridal party and family, but I'm a little taken aback by this.  Luckily, I have a friend that will be there whose date is also in the wedding so I can hang with her, but is this normal??  I feel terrible for those who will be there as dates that won't know a soul.  What are they supposed to do all night??  I'm completely respectful of the fact that it's a lot of money, but I think if it were me in the situation, I would just not have a formal rehearsal dinner and have everyone meet up somewhere and be on their own tabs.  Or even have a family member cook at a house or something...

I'm not trying to talk smack, I was just curious what y'all would think about this ...
