You do not have to invite out of town guests to the Rehearsal Dinner. Some couples do but it is entirely optional.

The rehearsal dinner was traditionally held to thank the wedding party for their time and support and to ensure that both families had met prior to the wedding.

Before you do that – there is no rule that you have to invite any out of town guests to the Rehearsal Dinner. It is traditionally only for the immediate families and wedding pary. I’ve only been to a few weddings where I was invited to the Rehearsal Dinner if I wasn’t in the wedding.

We are having strictly bridal party at the rehearsal dinner (and parents and grandparents.) From there we are having a welcome cocktail reception. Perhaps you can invite the Out of Town guests for a drink or two somewhere after the RD?

Another idea would be to rent another venue (or use someone’s home) and bring in catering from this restaurant?
