Im foreign, but my FI is American. As a guy he has no idea about any wedding traditions. So do we need to have a rehearsal ? From where I come from we dont have one. Theres just a big wedding. We dont have engagement parties, bridal showers or rehearsal dinners. We had an engagement party and all our closest friends and family had a chance to meet. I will have only a made of honor no other bridesmaids, same about my FI. I dont even want a bridal shower as i find it a bit stupid. I dont want people to feel obligated to bring me gifts 5 times before the wedding, I rather to get one, but a good one on our wedding day. So what do you guys think ?
