I'm feeling a little stressed about the rehearsal dinner and would love to know what other people have done! For some background, we're getting married in Texas on Memorial Day weekend next year. All of FH's family lives in TX, most within an hour drive of where we're getting married. Most of my friends and family are in California, and will be traveling to come to the wedding. I know that the proper etiquette is to invite any out of town guests to the rehearsal dinner, but it already feels like it's getting out of hand. My FH thinks that if we're inviting my aunts and uncles and cousins to the rehearsal dinner, then his should be invited, too. But his all live locally, while mine would be coming in from out of state. Just from glancing through our guest list, we could easily have over 100 people at our rehearsal dinner! Basically, I just want to know that I'm not alone in trying to keep both my mother and my FH happy with whatever we choose to do. Thanks!
