My husband is a groomsman in a friend’s wedding, so we received a rehearsal dinner invite. He can attend the wedding rehearsal but cannot attend the rehearsal dinner. Is it appropriate for me to still attend the rehearsal dinner, or should I not? I’m torn between representing my husband to support them but I don’t want to seem as if I’m horning in on the event when I’m not a member of the wedding party. What would you do? I consider the bride and groom friends, but I don’t know the bride extremely well and would consider the groom closer to my husband.

I don’t think you need to go. If your husband is the one in the wedding and he can’t make it, then there’s no need for you to be at the rehearsal, especially if you aren’t particularly close to the bride and groom.

I would probably miss it also, with your husband

Decline along with your husband (since he’s the reason you were invited).

You definitely don’t need to go. The bride and groom will probably appreciate it unless they’ve already paid for your dinner.

Unless you were family or best friends with the groom then I personally wouldn’t go.
