Well I don’t think it would be proper to invite them and ask for them to pay for themselves.  If your Future In-Laws don’t want to pay for the extra guests, and you still want to invite them, I think you should pay their way.

But honestly, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to invite your siblings to the Rehearsal Dinner, even if they aren’t exactly in the wedding.  Also, is there something that your siblings can d with regards to the wedding, that might warrant them being at the rehearsal?  Ushering? Handing out programs?  Making sure you walk down the aisle at the right time?

I think it’s fine to invite them. Immediate family is pretty much always invited to a rehearsal dinner.

Immediate family are always included in rehearsal dinners.  I’d invited them, but I wouldn’t ask them to pay.

You should def invite them, and they should not pay for it.  Immediate family is customarily invited to the Rehearsal Dinner.

I think it’s fine to have immediate family! I’ve been to a lot of rehearsal dinners that even go way beyond, and invite everyone from out of town, my future brother-in-law’s was something like 96 people!
