Who all gets invited to the rehearsal dinner? Our wedding will be about a 2 hour drive for both our relatives and friends so many will be staying in hotels. Also my parents are divorced, but get along very well with each other and the others boyfriend/girlfriend. Should I invite just my mom and dad to the rehearsal dinner or should I also invite their significant others as well? Note* they have only been dating these people for 3 years!

I woudl say if it is in the budget, go ahead and invite the significant others. They might feel a little left out. You say ONLY three years, but that’s a pretty significant amount of time that they’ve been in your life. If they all get along, go for it!

If it’s a distance to get there and people are already staying in hotels nearby, I’d go ahead and invite the SOs to the rehearsal, if it’s in the budget. For ours, we’re being pretty generous with dates to the wedding, but only spouses/fiance(e)s are invited to the Rehearsal Dinner… but our families both live within an hour of the venue.

Three years is a pretty significant amount of time to be with someone. For us, all of our wedding party and their SOs, our parents (and applicable SOs), and our grandparents were invited.
