We had a casual family brunch at my parents’ house the day before the wedding.  All our aunts, uncles, cousins, etc on both sides were there.  It was great – highly recommended.  Our parents are really good friends with each other and some family members had met some other family members, but I think EVERYONE having met really made for a more community-rich feeling to the wedding the next day.

eta: We also had a Welcome BBQ for all guests that night in lieu of a rehearsal dinner, but it was cool to have had the family brunch already so that they all knew each other at the larger BBQ.

Our rehearsal dinner was open to all guests! We called it a “social BBQ”.
