I would go ahead without them.  It’s really just to get you and your immediate families together before the wedding.

are you actually going to be rehearsing? i think as long as they’re there for that, it should be fine for them to miss the actual dinner.

Go ahead with it!  Our wedding is on a Friday night…..I have a friend who is the Best Man in another wedding Saturday night – their rehearsal for that wedding is the same night as our wedding.  He is leaving their rehearsal dinner early to come to my wedding….the B&G of that wedding totally understand….

I say go ahead without them for the dinner.  It is really the rehersal that matters the most.  If you have a gift to give them just do it at the rehersal or sometime before.

Go ahead without them. The rehearsal dinner serves many functions, with one of the most important ones being to serve as a time for the extended families to bond before the wedding. Your Maid/Matron of Honor will enjoy herself for whatever time she is able to be there, and it won’t be a big deal that she has to leave.
