A wedding rehearsal dinner traditionally takes place on the evening before the wedding day. After the details of the wedding ceremony are discussed and it is rehearsed, the groom’s family hosts a dinner to celebrate the upcoming day and give toasts and well wishes to the happy couple. Aside from the obvious guests, those involved in the rehearsal, the invitation list of the rehearsal dinner can be as vast or intimate as preferable.
The couple’s families are welcomed to join the festive occasion. Parents, grandparents and siblings of the couple should be on the guest list, as well as their significant others. The invitation of children is up to the planner of the event, as well as the inclusion of other relatives such as cousins and aunts or uncles.
The bridal party, including all bridesmaids, groomsmen and child attendants, are also must-haves on the rehearsal dinner invite list. Spouses or significant others should also be welcomed, as well as the parents of any children taking part in the wedding.
