We only included aunts/uncles if they were parents of wedding party members (one set for each the flower girl & ring bearer), so maybe you can cut some of your aunts, uncles and cousins?  I did include boy/girlfriends of the wedding party, and in your case I definitely would since other BM/GM will have their spouses.

Generally, only those involved in the ceremony and their spouses are invited. You need to sit down with your grandmother and discuss the guest list so that you are both on the same page.

People in wedding party, their husbands or wives, immediate family of the bride and groom, and we did grandparents. Came out to about 35-40 people.

We’re including our wedding party and their SO’s, our parents, grandmothers, my aunt, uncle and cousins (my cousins are in the wedding) and my other cousin (who will hopefully be officiating our ceremony) and her SO. In total we have 25 guests invited to the rehearsal dinner.

This was tough for us too.  We had 78 at ours… ridiculous, right?

We invited my aunts and uncles (their kids were part of the wedding), their kiddos, all sets of grandparents, both sets of parents, wedding party and a date for all of them, pastor and his wife (who was also part of the wedding), kids of any in the bridal party (5 kids total), and anyone helping with the wedding (sound, lights, etc.), and our coordinator and her family.

I think (my personal opinion) that you should invite the SO of each person in the wedding.

We are working on our rehearsal dinner guest list right now! I’m trying to keep it as intimate as possible… since our wedding is the complete opposite. Currently we have grandparents, parents, siblings spouses and their children, bridal party and SOs, and our ring bearers and their parents (my cousins).  We are considering adding Out of Town relatives, but if we do that there goes intimate!
