    We are doing only wedding party for the rehearsal. Everyone will tell you to do different things, as long as you’re consistent- you’re fine. We would love to be able to invite the out of town guests but then half our wedding would be there, and we simply don’t have the money to feed that many people twice in one week :/

    We invited all of our out of town guests, as well as family even if they were in town.

    We are inviting Out of Town guests, bridal party, and family, pretty much 80% of the wedding guests.  But we are just doing a BBQ at the church recreation center and my parents are hosting it (its the only thing I asked them to pay for), so it should be ok.

    We invited all of our guests. We couldnt just do all Out of Town guests because there were only a handful people that werent out of town – they lived an hour away from our venue. We didnt feel right excluding just a few people so we invited them all and I loved it!

    Definitely the wedding party/dates and family. A lot of our guests are coming from out of town, but we’re probably only going to invite the ones who live a plane ride away…otherwise our whole guest list would be at the rehearsal dinner! We’ll probably end up with about 50 people at the rehearsal dinner out of 175 or so at the wedding.

    I think we’ll do wedding party only and include my sister’s husband since he’s from out of town and one of the GM’s fiance’s because they’re from out of town as well. It’s not that I don’t want everyone and their grandmother there, I’m just trying to save on costs for my lovely Future In-Laws because they’ve been so generous in offering to host it. I know it’s expected, but they’re not super rich or anything and I want to respect their gift.

    We opted to have a more casual Rehearsal Dinner so we could afford to invite more people. We invited all Out of Town guests and spouses of people who were in the wedding.

    We are inviting the wedding party and their dates… oh and our parents. We aren’t inviting out of town guests as that would just be way too many people.

    I think if it’s that many than instead make it very small so that people don’t feel excluded.  Like immediate family & grandparents and wedding party…

    I had wedding party and all family w/ date but we both have small families. It was about 40 ppl.
