I think it depends. If it is just someone they are dating, they can be excluded. If it is truly a significant other–particularly one you know–you have to invite them. As far as the aunt goes, I wouldn’t invite her unless I was inviting all other aunts/uncles and grandparents. Otherwise, you’ll be playing favorites.

We are including everyone that will be in the wedding and their immediate families, like their children and spouses. We are not including parents because we are the ones paying for the wedding and everything else.

Anyone who is contributing to the wedding should be invited, at least in my opinion.

If she’s contributing then yes, she’s an exception. She should be invited.

We’re doing wedding party, parents and grandparents. Plus my brother that isn’t in teh wedding party.

I think if you are giving the wedding party dates for the wedding, they should also have dates for the rehearsal dinner.  Otherwise whoever they bring to the wedding is stuck sitting at the hotel by themselves – kind of rude.

There really is no set rule / ettiquette as to who is invited to the rehearsal dinner (other than any individual involved in the rehearsal).  Some invite just those in the rehearsal, some also include all family, some included OOT guests – it’s really up to you and your budget.
