Rehearsal dinners are not mandatory.  We had a dinner for the out of town relatives so we could spend some time with them outside the craziness of the wedding   We knew there wouldnt be  chance to sit and catch up and relax with them the day of.  This is the only reason we had a ‘rehearsal dinner’.

Nothing is really mandatory for a wedding except getting the certificate signed.  Do what you can within your budget and just enjoy your day.
