Pre-wedding Parties

Rehearsal Dinner List

Who all do you invite to the rehearsal dinner? I know that if you arent inviting someone to the wedding they don't receive an invite, but I need more specifics. Bridal party, parents, grandparents.....do OOT guests get invites if they are coming in early? Do you invite friends? I've been to a few and each one has been different so I'm just curious. Thanks!

    You invite everyone involved in wedding..bridal party and their significant others, parents, the flower girl/ring and their family. Its your choice to invite OOT guest, I would invite them.

    I think you should invite immediate family, grandparents and bridal party (and the guests of those attending, where applicable). OOT guests is a nice guesture, but not necessary.

    wedding party, parents, grandparents, close friends even if you did not include when in the wedding party. if your heart feels they should be there then invite them. make sure you okay this with whoever is paying for the RD.

    We invited parents, grandparents, readers, flower girl and her Mom, and the wedding party and all their dates. Not all the dates came. If we went with the OOT guests, our list would have shot from 33 to 60! That is like a mini wedding, and would have cost thousands! It is up to you though who you would like to invite. One suggestion - Have your rehearsal two nights before you wedding. That's what we did, and it was nice to have a relaxing day before the wedding instead of back-to-back parties.

    I am inviting bridal party and their significant others, parents, siblings, and our readers and their signicant others.  I am not inviting OOT guests but we don't have that many who are not in wedding party.

    I'm having an out of town wedding, so we are inviting our whole guest list (about 100 people). Typically, It's for bridal party + dates and immediate family.
