    Okay, I hit No but I meant to hit yes.  Damn it!  If you don’t think people would be offended then I say go for it.  My Dad wanted to do the same thing but I don’t want my fiance’s grandparents at my parents house.

    I don’t think it’s trashy. Everyone can afford different things. You could say something like, “The rehearsal is scheduled X day at X time. We are planning on having everyone over after to celebrate before the big day! It would be great if you could come!”

    That’s actually what I am doing, except that I am going to get a caterer to bring in trays of food so I am not stuck cooking.  Even with a caterer, I will still be saving money.

    We had ours at my in law’s house. It was a brunch so we had bagels and sandwiches. People had a good time, it was very laid back. My only suggestion would be to deligate the cooking to someone else, you’ll have enough to worry about the day before your wedding.

    We’re having a BBQ but we’re also only really having the people who need to be rehearing at this dinner so I don’t think they really care either way.

    I think a lot of people would really enjoy something less formal for the rehearsal dinner.

    Keep in mind you may not want to have all these people at your house the night before your wedding.  You may not want to be cooking then too.  Those were the last things I wanted to do right before my wedding.  So I voted no.

    If you do dinner I think it is fine.

    I don’t find anything wrong with that. I think it’s a great idea.

    This was a very popular option when i lived down in Georgia.  It wasn’t a money issue either. Even people that spent $100,000 on their wedding did this. It was a southern hospitality thing I guess. It seemed that every wedding I was a part of we went back to the parents house for a backyard barbque and games.  You have to have games. That is what made it such a hoot! It was hilarious to see my friend’s mom and great aunt geraldine doing the three legged race across the lawn in their heels and fancy hats. You could do lawn games or board games. If anyone says they feel it is tacky simply stick your nose up in the air and say in your snootiest voice “darling, all the best families are doing this”.
