Wedding Rehearsal Dinner: Who should be invited?
Actually the rehearsal dinner can just be the two of you and your families. If the budget allows it can be an even larger celebration to include out of town guests and locals as well. I’ve even found in some occasions that both the groom and brides families chip in and split the expense. The tradition of the wedding rehearsal being” The Grooms Night’ is true traditionally but that isn’t always the case these days. The evening is all about the coming together of both families and friends in a more casual relaxed atmosphere.
However, what it really comes down to be doing sweat the small stuff. The wedding is such an expense in itself that no one is keeping score. How about this for an affordable alternative. Ask a local friend of relative to host a cocktail party a few days prior to the wedding or brunch the day after.
Happy Beginnings, Mike
