- Wedding: February 2012
I’m having a really hard time deciding who we should invite to the rehearsal dinner. Originally we were going to have the wedding party, and our immediate families(aunts/uncles/grandparents/cousins), at a very nice restaurant. But some people are saying it is poilte to invite everyone that is in from out of town, except 95% of our guests are all out of town. Oh, and we have 20 people in our bridal party, so with their dates, thats about 35 people. So my question is, do we invite
~The wedding party only,at a very nice restaurant, and forget about everyone else(35 people)
~The wedding party and our families, at a nice restaurant, and forget about out of town people(80 people)
~Have a dinner for the wedding party, and cocktails/appetizers for everyone else(families/out of town guests)
~ Invite everyone to one dinner, at a semi nice restaurant(150)
Obviously the smaller the group, the nicer the restaurant we can have, for our budget. We are doing oot welcome bags, so it’s not like the out of town guests will feel unloved. I also thought about if we only did the wedding party, we could include gift cards in our immediate families welcome bags, for a restaurant that’s close by. ugghhh, so many options. Please tell me your opinions, and what each of you are doing for yours.
