So I am curious who ever is doing or has done a rehearsal dinner/rehearsal, did you only have the people that are in the wedding show up and at the dinner only or were there tag alongs as well. Did you make note to the people that are suppose to be there no tag alongs or did you allow it?
All bees!!! Please tell your opinions if you are married already as well as if you are in planning mode like me 🙂 Thank you ladies!

So, I replied with something and realized that I totally read it wrong… so… I’m interested to see what others say 🙂

We are inviting bridal party and their significant others, but not random dates. For example, several of the groomsmen are married or in LTR’s, so their SO’s are invited. My Bridesmaid or Best Man who’s bringing a date to the wedding but is not really with him (and they’re both local) is not invited to bring him to the Rehearsal Dinner. I’m just telling her that I don’t think he’d be comfortable coming- he’s not her boyfriend, they’re not dating, he’s just a friend she’s bringing to the wedding who isn’t close to me (wouldn’t have gotten a wedding invite on his own, though I do know him) and doesn’t know Fiance.

We asked anyone who was in the bridal party and their +1’s and children, a couple family members who were visiting from out of town, our immediate family and my DOC. Everyone else wasn’t told, and there were no issues!

We are inviting Bridal Party and SO’s (i.e. long term gf/bf, living together, engaged, married, etc), but not random guests.
My Fiance is going to a rehearsal dinner tomorrow where I am not invited, despite that we’re engaged and living together AND we’ve all hung out together, etc. I am completely ticked off and think it’s so rude and tacky. They made my Fiance spend $250 on a tux rental, and they couldn’t spare an extra dinner plate at the rehearsal? Apparently no other person in the Bridal Party has SO’s, so too bad so sad for me.
