Deciding Whom to Invite to the Rehearsal Dinner
My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for a living. I'm Ruthie Hecht; I'm an event planner and I work with and for my mother. We're going to teach you the do's and don'ts for the perfect wedding. Everything that is involved in making a wedding today, is a very subjective issue. No 2 families, and no 2 bride and groom can do anything by actual rules. There's just too much subjectivity. In deciding who to invite to a rehearsal dinner, many people leave it strictly to the bridal party and any out of town guests. But, then there are other families, where there's extended family or best, best friends who people feel the necessity to invite. If there is budget for it, it's nice to open it to more people. If the budget is very tight, then you really leave it to bridal party and people coming in from out of town. Budget is really the best way to decide how many people you wanna invite to your rehearsal dinner.
