FI's dad asked us what we're doing for the rehearsal dinner. (I assume he had anticipated hosting?) But I hadn't really even planned on having a rehearsal. Do we need one? We're not having attendants, we won't have access to our venue before the evening of our wedding, it's a business open during business hours and is rented out the previous night. I had kind of expected we'd just meet with the officiant within a week or two of the wedding to finalize what wording we want used, his "program" for the ceremony, etc. Then we'd show up early at the venue and make sure we're clear on where we will stand, and make sure the employees know what song we want played. It's an evening wedding, and we'll be doing photos in the afternoon, then probably move to the venue after 5 when they close, and do some more photos there, along with any last minute set-up, with the ceremony following at 6:30 or 7.
Is there more we need to do, rehearsing-wise?
We may decide to to something the night before if we end up having many out of town guests coming, like invite them all to come out with us to a local piano bar at 9 pm or something, but would that require to be hosted?
