We are just getting pizza and drinks for the rehearsal dinner.  So probably we will have 30-40 people.  We are on a tight budget so it was either pizza or we go to a resteruant and people pay their own way.

We’re planning on 40-45 people…it’s bridal party and their boyfriends/husbands/girlfriends, immediate family, out of towners and a couple people who helped us out with any part of the wedding.

We invited a lot of people. All OOTers, and some in town people that we knew would want to hang out with the Out of Town people. We really didn’t have a lot of time during the wedding to mingle with everyone, so it was nice having them all there.

My brother did both. They had a small, intimate dinner with just bridal party and family and then we went somewhere else for dessert for all of the other people to join.

We are having about 25 at the rehearsal dinner, just bridal party members and their spouses/dates and parents.  My reasons for not inviting more people were 1)we are paying for it ourselves and didn’t want the cost to get out of control 2) When we booked our venue we got a free space to use for our rehearsal that is really neat but doesn’t hold that many people and 3)I figured I would be so busy during the wedding reception I wanted a chance to spend time with my close friends (aka bridal party).

We had about 26 people at the rehearsal dinner itself, and then had a cocktail party afterward.  Ours was a semi-destination wedding, so everyone was out of town.  This allowed us to do something fun and welcoming for all our guests, but still have an intimate dinner with just our families/bridal party/dates.

We are keeping it with parents, bridal party and one(maybe 2) couples who are traveling a thousand miles to be here…we don’t have that many out of town people. We are trying to keep it small.
