Rehearsal dinner-invite SO's of bridal party-also...

Will you/should I invite the SO's of all of our bridal party?  I will of course invite anyone married or even been together for a good amount of time, but what about my 19 and 20 year old nieces boyfriends?  I guess, it's only 2 more, and why exclude them....just looking for suggestions.
Also, I thought about hosting it at our reception venue, but it's looking like there will be about 28 ppl, and our venue is about 12.00/person......wondering if I can find anything cheaper.  I'd love  to do a BBQ or something along those lines, but our wedding is April 30th, don't know what the weather will be doing yet!

    We invited everyone who wanted to come (SOs and OOTs).  We had ours at Pinz, a bowling alley in Oakdale.  I had a lot of compliments on how nice it was to have a relaxed RD where people could really mingle and talk for hours.  We did pizza, drinks, and snacks, and then rented a few lanes for an hour of bowling after.  Some bowled, some chatted, some did laser tag.  It was a lot of fun (and relatively cheap compared to a big sit down restaurant).

    hmmm....we did our Engagement party at Pinz and had lots of fun!  It was a little disorganized for so many ppl who wanted to bowl, and splitting up checks etc. 
    We paid for food and bowling, but guests paid for their own drinks. 
    It does sound fun....I want something casual!

    I think that it is appropriate to invite SOs of your bridal party to your rehearsal dinner regardless of how long they've been together.  Think of it as a way to add additional thanks to your bridal party members for their time and efforts on your big day.
