I’m from Ohio (that’s where the wedding will be held) and currently live in San Antonio (that’s where my fiance’s family is from). The wedding will be held on Friday night. Since we do not fly out until Sunday, I’m wondering if we should be expected to hang out with all the Out of Town guests for the WHOLE DAY Saturday or maybe just part of the time?
Let me know your thoughts. We are definitely doing breakfast with everyone, just not sure we should be obligated to go to a museum or baseball game or casino, etc

I do not believe that a bride and groom are under ANY obligation to see anyone after the reception, since, traditionally that is when the honeymoon begins, and no one expects to see the happy couple during that time. (I know that some families host a brunch for their out-of-town guests the next morning, but, from what I’ve seen, that does not necessarily include the bride and groom.)

I’m going through this issue right now with my Future In-Laws. They are refusing to attend our rehearsal dinner because we are refusing to invite ALL of the Out of Town family members because it leads to inviting MY entire family of 60 + 30 on his side. As it stands our rehearsal dinner has 33 people so that would make our Rehearsal Dinner 123 people. Which I’m sorry that’s ridiculous!
We are very grateful people went out of their way to be here for our wedding, but that’s just it. They came for OUR WEDDING, not a weekend extravaganza. Sorry if I’m coming off bridezilla I’m pretty worked up about it because of my Future In-Laws. So basically my Fiance will have no adult family members at our Rehearsal Dinner (his sister, and 3 cousins are in the wedding and will be there) but his parents aren’t just not coming, they’re also taking the few adult family members we did invite (their kids are in the wedding). INCLUDING his beloved grandma! My Fiance is so sad that he has no family coming to the dinner. He’s trying to convince his parents to come, but they don’t seem to get it.

That’s a bummer. I hope you have a good wedding weekend (I see you only have a few days left)… WOOHOO!
I have been to rehearsal dinner with over 100, but I think that is CRAZY!
