I am wondering what protocol is on this – we are having a relatively small rehearsal dinner – wedding party (and dates), immediate family and grandparents, aunts and uncles (there are only 2 on Fiance side and 1 on my side). It will be 30 ppl at the most.
My friends husband is our MC – am I suppossed to invite him to the rehearsal dinner? I would like to keep it as small as possible but don’t want to be rude and exclude him, if normally mc’s are invited.
what did everyone else do?

What do you mean by emcee? I have never heard of one for a wedding.
When we were planning on having a Rehearsal Dinner we were going to invite the Minister, the Hostesses, and the Musicians/Singers.

your husband’s friend would tech be considered a vendor. So, no, vendors are not invited to the rehersal dinner, because they are not in the rehersal.

I would invite him. He’s performing a major role for you, so it’s nice of you to include him.

@PrncssDva: emcee – as in MC (master of Ceremonies). A friend of mine is going to keep the reception going, introduce ppl before their toasts etc. (it’s common here for weddings, maybe it’s not everywhere?)

If there is no one else who is coming besides family and Wedding Party, I wouldn’t invite him. Unless, you ALSO consider him to such a good friend that he is “almost” Wedding Party.

I don’t think you have to, but we did invite “friendors” to the Rehearsal Dinner. We also got them a gift for being in the wedding, so that was when we gave it to them.
