Wedding Rehearsal Dinner: Are the Wedding Party's Spouses Invited to the Rehearsal Dinner?

Q:

My husband will be the best man in a wedding soon, and though I'm invited to the wedding itself, it's not clear whether I'm invited to the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner. Should I just go anyway?

A:

Usually, the wedding party is invited to the rehearsal dinner along with their significant others - spouses definitely included. If the dinner is meant only for the wedding party, a written invitation should indicate this preference. Still, ask your husband to double-check with his friend if you're unsure. You don't need the stress of not knowing whether you should go or not when it's as easy as asking him.
