It depends.  We had the bridal party, the only attending grandparent, and a few family and friends that were staying with my inlaws and my dad’s friends (because they didn’t know anyone).

Anyone involved in the processional – wedding party, flower girls/ring bearers, escorts for mothers of the bride and groom.

We are having bridal party, ushers, guest book attendant, flower girl, ring bearer, pastor, grandparents, immediate family, a few close family friends, and aunts and uncles that are close. 

JUST make sure to include spouses or dates of those you’re inviting- Especially if they are coming from out of town. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and we were told not to bring dates so my fiance had to stay at the hotel!!! This did not make either of us very happy! 

Also, If you have people traveling a long distance (internationally) it would be nice to include them if you have the budget. Make the most of their effort to be there for your big day!!

Ours is a PAR-TAY! We have lots of folks from Out of Town that we want to make sure to see a lot, so we are having a big BBQ or pizza party with all of the people who traveled to be there (+ of course the bridal party & SOs.) We might have it at one of the hotels where everyone is staying and have a pool party, too. But that’s just us, I think mostly people keep it simple and close knit.

ours is a huge friggin party.

60 people. 110 person wedding. insane.

wedding party, immediate family, out of STATE guests, and the fiances extended family (yep..they ALL invite each other to their rehearsal dinner which is why ours so is big)

not many places that had good food could handle a group this size. our rehearsal dinner is costing $4k. yes, you read that right.

it’s out of control!

Since our rehearsal dinner will be on New Year’s Eve, we are having an oyster roast and inviting everyone. Most guests are from out of town, so we felt if they were in town that night, they might as well come. It really all depends on who you want to be at the rehearsal dinner and how much you want to spend. Normally I think its just the bridal party and parents, but its all up to you.

We are inviting our parents, wedding party + their quest, grandparents, readers + guest, flower girls, ring bearer, & our officiant and his wife.  We are getting married in Northern New Husband and everyone will be from Out of Town so we invited everyone that is apart of the ceremony to the rehearsal dinner and are having a welcome party later that night with apps & cocktails.

we’re thinking our parents and sisters and bridal party only… keeping it small, cheap, and simple.
