We’re going to invite immediate family and the wedding party and any guest they might bring.  Are wedding is considered “destination” and everyone will be Out of Town, the future-in-laws can’t afford to invite everyone so this is the most fair compromise I could think of.

Immediate family, bridal party and their dates, our officiant and her husband (my aunt is officiating, we prob wouldn’t invite a random minister we didn’t know) and out of town family who is in the night before (should be only 4 additional people). We probably would not invite Out of Town people if we had a ton of them, but other than immediate family there is only one other group that is coming in the night before because they have to fly (everyone else is driving in on the day of). So our total dinner should be 26 + a baby.

For us, we did not grow up in the same city. So there is limited chance for both families to get together.
Because of that we wanted the “rehearsal/night before wedding” dinner to be just the two families.
Along with it my Maid/Matron of Honor, her husband who is also Groomsmen and are just like family. 🙂
And BIL’s date.

I was torn about not inviting all the Out of Town guests!!! But I think at the end it was more important that the two immediate families were together and it was more intimate.

@Running Elley: Immediate family, the bridal party and their spouses. My inlaws hosted it so they invited some randoms as well.
