1. I didn’t send out paper invites for mine.  We emailed the information to people in the wedding party and our families have been told where to be.  We also created a facebook event for people who are on facebook.  That said, the whole thing was easy because everyone we know who is attending is either close family or close friends. 

2. I don’t think you have to invite the sextet…they probably won’t even want to come out to sing if they don’t have to.  Weddings aren’t so complicated that they can’t figure out what to do.  If they do attend the rehearsal, you have to have them at the dinner. If money is an issue, definitely don’t include them in either part.

@lilacdust:  Hmmm… not sure about wording for you. However, I have participated in multiple weddings as a reader and did not attend the rehearsal for any of them. For what it’s worth, I was not invited to the rehearsal dinner, either (when I was a reader). 

It was very clear from the program when I should go up to read, and the practice wasn’t necessary. I think you’re on the right train of thought with the sextet- probably not necessary to bring them to the rehearsal or the dinner!

If there’s an issue with people getting off work, you don’t have to have the rehearsal at the ceremony venue, I know several people who have held it at the Rehearsal Dinner site. We didn’t even have a rehearsal- my minister met with the guys for about 5 minutes before the ceremony- it’s pretty straight forward what people have to do.

I think your sextet can skip the Rehearsal Dinner.

Not doing paper invites for the rehearsal or the dinner.  I will tell people.  I am actually thinking of giving the wedding party a paper filled with pre-wedding events the week of the wedding so they can have that info (many birds with 1 stone and saving paper).

I would ask the sextet if they felt they needed or wanted to come to the rehearsal.  Let it be up to them.
