Give your Future Mother-In-Law the money and don’t breathe a word of this to your attendants.

@sportsgal31:  I agree, just pay for the spouses and don’t tell anyone!

@Rica2002:  Wow!!!!  It is very gracious of you Father-In-Law to pay for the rehearsal dinner.  But I’m agree with other responders to your inquiry.  Any bridal party member (and especially one that is coming in from out of town!) should be extended the courtesy of bringing his/her significant other.  Invite them and pay for that portion of the rehearsal dinner.  OR do you feel comfortable enough with your inlaws to say, “Thank you so much for your genorisity with the rehearsal dinner.  I had read that it’s proper to allow those that traveled a distance to bring a guest.  Would it be okay with you that I extend that invite to them?” PS:  Does your Future Mother-In-Law “like” or dislike any of  the significant others?

Just pay for the 4 extra guests yourself. It will save a lot of hastle and added issues and whe you think about it, its only $140.

Good for you!  I had a sneaky suspicion that your mother in law would make no big deal about including the 4!  I’m happy for you, your fiance, and your inlaws.  You sound like a great group of people!  Happy wedding to you! 🙂
