Ask Etta: Who’s Invited to the Rehearsal Dinner?

While we dish about the hottest trends and latest designs (aka the fun parts of wedding planning!) we also know how stressful prepping for the big day can be. So, we would like to formally introduce you to Etta, our new etiquette expert. She’s ready and happy to delve into your every etiquette dilemma.

Mary Asks…

I’m getting ready to order invites for my rehearsal dinner… who exactly should be on the guest list?

Etta Says…

We get this question all the time. Must-haves include:

  • your wedding party and their significant others
  • parents of any youngsters playing a part in your ceremony, like your flower girl or ring bearer
  • you and your hubby’s close relatives
  • any special guests, like your officiant and their significant other

You’re not obligated to invite out-of-towners, but if your dinner space and budget allow, it’s nice to include them as well. Happy planning!
