I think it is totally reasonable to just have those participating in the ceremony to be at the brunch. You will see your extended family and out of town guests that evening, which is wonderful!! That way they can feel included in the weekend, without necessarily being part of the rehersal. And, I would probably want to explore DC and not watch the rehersal for the wedding I will witness in 24 hours anyway! You also have some time, so maybe hold off on making any definite arrangments until you get a better idea of how many will be attending the wedding, around for Saturday festivities, etc. Sounds like you are going to have a wonderful weekend!

Your wedding weekend sounds GORGEOUS! wow.

Since the brunch place only holds 60 people I think it’s totally OK to say only wedding party and immediate family. If it can’t hold more, what can you do?! 

 You are buying everyone dinner, I think that’s completely sufficient. Don’t even worry about being rude! your gourmet lunch boxes sound delish, I may just show up and crash your wedding…J/K J/K but seiruosly, what a cool and neat idea! 

And I think it’s LOVELY that you are honoring the servicement in your family, seeing as how i’m marrying one myself =]

i think it is pretty much tradition to have just the bridal party at the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, so you should be fine with that.  you are planning such a great weekend for your guests – the second rehearsal sounds wonderful!

I think it’s fine to keep the brunch to those that need to be there.
