People who are involved in the wedding rehearsal are invited to the rehearsal dinner.  So that would include the officiant.  I’m not familiar with the musicians being present at the rehearsal.  But if they are, I think they should get an invite.  Other than that, it would be proper to invite OOT guests.  (Sometimes people don’t do this though.  For example if a good portion of your wedding guests are coming from OOT.  The Rehearsal dinner shouldn’t be another wedding reception.  NOt to mention ti would be really expensive.)

I haven’t heard of people inviting their DJ…but if he is a friend or something, by all means, do it.

The rehersal should include your music so that you can get timing, etc right.  If your DJ is doing it, then by all means invite him to the dinner afterwards.  I would think it was kind of rude to not include the wedding parties dates, but it depends on your dinner.  If it’s just a cusual get-together afterwards at someone’s house then I wouldn’t think it’s expected.

At my rehearsal, we included dates.  Bu for the most part, either the wedding party was married, or the dates, along with the BP attendants, were OOT.  So we might have invited them anyway.

We’re just inviting everyone for the rehearsal dinner as there really isn’t another place around to get some grub. If I were hiring a DJ, I don’t think I would though. Is that bad?

We’re having a relaxed rehearsal dinner that isn’t very expensive, so we’re inviting our wedding party, family, and out of town guests that are planning to come into town the night before.

@msduck – I think you’re right on. If your DJ is performing your ceremony music, he should be invited to the rehearsal and dinner. He might not have all of his equipment there at the rehearsal, but it will be good for him to see a walk through.

I also agree w/ wedding party + guest. I went to a rehearsal dinner where I wasn’t allowed to bring my husband (then boyfriend of 2 years) to the dinner. It wasn’t the end of the world, but I did feel a little uncomfortable.
