it depends, i’ve been to some where they were small and just wedding party and some that have extended oot guests. it’s whatever you want it to be. we’re having a very casual lunch at my fi’s parent’s house so we will be able to have a bigger party with all of the oot family.

My in-laws threw the rehearsal dinner, and insisted on the etiquette rule that every Out of Town guest should be invited in addition to wedding party, parents, and grandparents, even though that was 90% of the guest list! About 100 people actually came. They did a nice dinner, (buffet, not plated) at the hotel where our block was. It was open seating, which turned out to be awkward b/c no one thought they were enough of a VIP to sit with my Fiance and me – we ended up sitting at a table for 8 in the middle of the room with just my MOH!

They sort of scattered and found friends who were guests, and sat at tables with them. I don’t blame them for not wanting to be around me, I was sort of a basket case! LOL

I guess the lesson learned is that people need to be *invited* to the “VIP” seats, no one will presume to just seat themselves next to the bride.
