When hosting a rehearsal dinner for the bride and the groom, the immediate wedding party should be invited. This includes the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, the ushers, the parents, and the grandparents of the bride. Don't forget to include the ring bearer and the flower girl and parents of both.
The minister and his or her spouse should be invited for the rehearsal dinner also. If you have a personal attendant, who is often a close friend or family member but is not a bridesmaid, she should also be invited to attend.
Other participants of the wedding may also be included. These are entirely up to the couple. Examples of who are optional are as follows: vocalist, scripture readers, guest book attendants and gift attendant.
