    Everyone else gets a date so he should too. I’ve never been to a rehearsal dinner without Darling Husband when we were dating and vice versa even if we had ony been together for a few months.

    Even if she’s new, I think members of the wedding party should be provided dates. Besides, she might be friggin awesome and a ton of fun, so why not?

    If she’s invited to the wedding, she should be invited to the rehersal dinner. Look at it as a way to get to know her a little bit.

    yeah, i think she should be invited to the rehearsal dinner. that said, i was in a wedding where NONE of us got dates to the rehearsal dinner, even if in a long term relationship. :/

    I say yes just because it seems unhospitable and like you’re singling them out . . . even if that’s not the case.

    Yep, even if it’s just some chick he met last Tuesday on the city bus, your groomsman like the rest of the bridal party has the status of honored guest and must be treated as such. That means he gets a date for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding.

    yes, no question. And if he is important enough to be in your bridal party, you might want to ask what his girlfriends name is.

    absolutely especially if she is invited to the wedding too! Would be a great way to break the ice and meet other members of the bridal party t hat way the next day everyone knows each other! She might be fun! 🙂

    I was just wondering about this too, so thanks! It helps me out. I have only been to one rehearsal dinner and even as Maid/Matron of Honor I wasn’t given a plus one for any part of the wedding but that seemed atypical to me and not something I would want to do at my own wedding.
