@Tswife4ever: I’ll invite them, if they want to come! If not, no worries. Most of mine are Out of Town, so it’s sort of a given that they’re invited.

Yes, we are inviting them. Fiance has been in two weddings and I’ve attended both rehearsals with him. I don’t think people will be bored – the rehearsal should only take 15 minutes or so.

All of the Groomsmen are married so we are inviting their wives to the rehearsal dinner. I went to all of their rehearsal dinners too, so it’s at least normal in my social circle. They won’t go to the rehearsal; they will just meet up for dinner.

We are inviting all Out of Town guests to the rehearsal dinner (and since 99% of guests are Out of Town, that means everyone).

The rehearsal will be at 3/3:30 and dinner won’t be until 6:30.

BM’s and GM’s SOs are welcome to come to the rehearsal part if they want, but they also can do something else if they choose.

We are inviting them to both the rehearsel and the dinner. If they only want to show up for the dinner, that’s fine with us. I don’t know what ettiquite says about it though, just thought I would let you know what we are doing! Hope it helps!

We are of course inviting them.  But our bridal party is siblings, so their SOs (which are mostly spouses) would be invited anyway.

They are welcome to come to the rehearsal if they want (they’re all Out of Town guests, so not sure what else they would do….but they are all being invited to the rehearsal dinner afterward for sure.

We’re inviting them all to rehearsal dinner. Lucky for us 3 of the BMs and 2 of the Groomsmen are coming solo so it only really added two people to our guest list. Rehearsal is in a different location than dinner so I don’t expect their SOs to come to that.

Not everyone who comes to the rehearsal dinner needs to come to the rehearsal.  It’s unthinkable to me that I’d ask a friend to buy special close and stand up next to me to celebrate my relationship and then not include hers at every step of the celebration.

I invited them to the whole thing, to be honest they were quite helpful.  A lot of the wives took over, managed the flower girl and ring bearer (parents were in the wedding) and they were able to aid guests the next day when they had questions about bathrooms or cocktail hour and stuff.

Absolutely. I think that’s the curteous way to go.

Yep, they’re invited. We’ll have the GMs, BMs, their SOs, immediate family at dinner. Then we’ll do after dinner meet and greet drinks with the rest of the guests at the hotel.
