Pretty much everyone who would be in your rehearsal wedding run-through would attend your rehearsal dinner. It’s a great chance for you to have some time with the people who are most important to you before the big day, because chances are on the actual day you’ll be too busy to spend quality time with everyone! If you’re worried about costs, why not make it a simple backyard gathering? Here’s a helpful article on planning and hosting your rehearsal dinner: [link removed per self promotion policy]

Around here, its just Mother’s (inlaws, Step Mom/Mom figure which could be a grandma if they raised the person). So my order was his mom, my mom, than bridal party, my dad and I (and of course the moms were escorted by someone). I would say no to having them at the rehearsal if their role is just walking down the aisle if its something you can explain to them. If you wanna see the timing of everything than I would say yes to having them there. Our moms walking down the aisle was “unofficial” and was a way to signify that the ceremony was starting and that the bridal party would be coming into the room.
