If you Fiance isn’t in the wedding (it sounds like only you are) then honestly, there is no reason for him to be at the rehearsal.

I expected that the spouses/SOs of my bridal party would just meet us for dinner instead of sitting through the rehearsal that they have no part of.

My church didn’t want people to just come to the rehearsal that weren’t a part of it because that typically led to distractions and made everything take longer.

Is there a reason he has to be at the rehearsal? (Is he in the wedding?)

If he’s not in the wedding, I understand why he wouldn’t want to sit around and watch the rehearsal.

Is he still going to make it back for the dinner? If so, it’s probably fine.

This. I didn’t attend the actual rehearsal at a recent wedding my Darling Husband was in. There’s no need for spouses to be there and can actually make it more chaotic.

I almost HOPE that the bridal party doesn’t bring all their significant others to the rehearsal hah.  They’re all clearly invited to the dinner, but I don’t want to have to wrangle more people!

EDIT:  Seeing your second part about the church, I get that.  I would also want my Fiance to see it.  But I wouldn’t let this bother you.  And make sure never to go to one of the rehearsals the next time this comes up and he’s in a wedding party hah!

I don’t see this situation as worthy of stress/anger/issues or that he is saying “screw you” to the wedding party. 

I imagine his perception of the whole thing is quite different and thus doesn’t precisely understand/anticipate how his not being there would bother you. I don’t get the impression of any purposefully ill behavior on his behalf; is there a way you can lovingly discuss the topic with your man?

i can see why this would bug you.  it’s family, you’re excited (and have expressed this to him) to show him the church you guys will be married at soon.

yea, he’s being selfish.  i’d be annoyed.
