The wedding rehearsal, normally held the day before the wedding, is usually followed by a rehearsal dinner. This gives the wedding party, families and out of town guests an opportunity to get to know each other better.
The guest list includes members of the wedding party, their spouses or dates, the families, the officiant and sometimes, out-of-town guests. Make sure the flower girl and ring bearer are included, along with their parents. The groom’s parents traditionally plan and host the rehearsal dinner, but other family or friends may host this party.
