The WP’s dates should be invited to the rehearsal dinner. Just have your Fiance check with the groom to avoid any unnecessary confusion. 🙂

As far as I know it’s standard to invite the significant others to the rehearsal dinner. Maybe you could have your Fiance call to clarify though. Who knows, maybe they’re trying to keep costs down and not having SOs attend, so it’s best just to ask rather than step on toes.

If your invited to the wedding as “his guest”, then you should be invited to the rehearsal dinner as “his guest”.

My guess is yes, you are.  I would have Fiance call to make sure.

They should have specified to be clear, but I would assume you are invited and call to confirm.

my guess would be no, at least for my rehearsal.  If everyone’s significat other was invited it would double the cost of food, and I would be upset that they just showed up.  (not including the flower girl and ring bearers parents which of course they are invited) Just because you are invited as his guest to the wedding does not mean you can assume that invite is for the rehearsal dinner as well…you are not in the wedding party so the rehearsal is not for you.

The rehearsal dinner is for those who were there to rehearsal that day….

I would double check to make sure, bc if you are invited and don’t show up they may ask about you.

I think that you should have Fiance call and ask. I think that it’s standard that the significant others are invited to the rehearsal dinner as well.

Maybe this is a regional thing.  I’ve never had a date invited to the rehersal dinner.  No matter the seriousness of the relationship.  I would check with the bride and groom. 

We’re planning to invite dates, but mostly because we’re planning to use them all for hard labor (tent decorating) after we feed them.  We also have a very small wedding party to the couple extra mouths won’t break the bank.

Fiances and spouses should be invited to the rehearsal dinner. Plus one’s usually aren’t at the rehearsal dinner unless they are from out of town.
