- Wedding: August 2013
So, my fiance and I were recently talking to his parents about our rehersal dinner (giving them a list of people who should attend, etc.) and his father (my future FIL) asked me a question that I didn’t know how to answer.
He asked, “So, we as parents pay for things for the champagne toast, and go to the wedding rehersal, and pay for the rehersal dinner, but what do we do in the wedding?” (keep in mind that they’ve never been to a traditional wedding like the one my fiance and I are planning……they eloped and their oldest daughter had a small~20 guest wedding)
As far as I know, there are no duties for the mother and father of the groom are there? My dad gives me away, the bridesmaids and groomsmen have their duties, the flower girls and ring bearer have their duties, the officiant marries us…..
I think they just give a toast at the reception, and enjoy the event (and cry!) right?
And on a separate note, should the out of town guests (like my aunt in California and my grandparents in florida) be invited to the rehersal dinner and bridal shower?
