It’s pretty much a  “thank you” for everyone who’s helping out with the wedding.  And a nice way to end the rehearsal night =)  We are giving out the parents and attendant gifts that night, I’m giving Fiance his grooms cake, etc.

LOL… the rehearsal dinner is really b/c you won’t get to really spend any real time with any of these people the day of.

The Day goes by SO fast… so having the time to joke (FH thank everyone and his parents who host) and get to breathe is kinda nice.

That’s all.. it’s not “neccessary” though… just still be sure to have the actual rehearsal 😉

@runsyellowlites: is right … plus if you have Out of Town guests it gives them some time to get to know the town, o if they are relatives … time to hang out and spend  time with people.

For us I think it was a time to hang out with Out of Town guests b/c you’re so busy at the wedding, and a chance to thank your wedding party and give them gifts.

I think traditionally the guy’s family pays b/c the bride’s pays for the wedding, but really who does tradition anymore.
