    MadameX:  Most often the rehearsal dinner invitees include the officiant (who doesn’t always attend), the immediate family of the bride and groom (parents and siblings/SO’s if applicable), and the wedding party and their SO’s.

    There is no obligation to  invite the OOT’s.  You could invite the OOT’s to join you for coffee after dinner, then whoever is interested can go bar hopping on their own.

    Honestly, in the number of weddings I’ve been in or have been an out of town guest for, I have never once seen or been to a rehearsal dinner that includes all out of town guests. I don’t think it’s a requirement, at least in my area.
