I think if it’s only Out of Town for half your guests, you don’t need to do a brunch the next day.  Obviously, you never NEED to, but I’d recommend a few breakfast places for his family members to check out, but not feel obligated to host them.  As for the rehearsal dinner, again not entirely crucial, but I think it’s nice to offer people a pre-wedding meet and greet event, especially the out-of-towners.  However, this could be as simple/cheap as inviting everyone over to your house, getting a keg and some pizzas, and just hanging out.  It doesn’t need to be fancy.

Our rehearsal dinner is going to only be for our bridal party and anyone performing in the ceremony (readers, etc.), plus their significant others. I think total we’re having 40 people, out of 180 guests. Out of Town guests are NOT invited. They are there for the wedding. I’m not throwing 2 receptions.

We are going to do a BBQ lunch the next day, with stuff from Costco, at my parent’s house. Very easy going. Nothing formal or sit down.
