    We are having a destination wedding in Vermont, and are going to invite everyone to the rehearsal dinner.  This is taking away money from the wedding, but I just see it as an extension of the party.  I’m actually really looking forward to it!

    I’m having a destination wedding and I’m not inviting all the out of towners to rehearsal. It would be like having two weddings, which is ridiculous. I’m inviting the wedding party and immediate family only.

    We are having our wedding in Wisconsin and it is a destination wedding for us and all of our family and friends. I had the same thought process as you….why invite everyone from out of town to the rehearsal dinner? It would be exactly like having 2 wedding receptions! So instead we are inviting only the people that are direct participants in the ceremony (and therefore, the rehearsal) and direct family to the rehearsal dinner and that’s it. That way it it much more intimate, and involves only immediate family and those participating in our ceremony. However, since we don’t want anyone to feel excluded or like they came all this way for just one event, we are having a welcome party at the hotel around 8 p.m. after the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and that party will be a coffee and desserts meet and greet that will be open to all our guests to give them the opportunity to get to know each other before wedding day and to spend some extra time with us.
