Should We Invite Wedding Party Plus-Ones to the Rehearsal Dinner?


You’ve already decided who gets a plus-one to the wedding, and everyone in your wedding party made the cut.

But your wedding party is attending a lot more than just the wedding, so should their dates be invited, too?

We chatted with some of our Perfect Wedding Guide wedding planners about whether or not your bridesmaids and groomsmen’s plus-ones should be added to the rehearsal dinner guest list.

Almost everyone we spoke to said that the only people you need to invite are those who are participating in your rehearsal, which probably includes your immediate family, your wedding party, and any friends or family members who are doing readings as part of your ceremony. Inviting anyone beyond that is a nice touch, but isn’t required.

However, since you’re inviting your wedding party along with their dates to your wedding, that means they’ll probably be in town the night before, too.

Avoid the awkward situation that would leave your wedding party’s Significant Others to fend for themselves for dinner (as well as any resentment from your wedding party) by including everyone in the dinner plans.
