Did you have a rehearsal dinner or having one?
Did you or didn't you have a rehearsal dinner and why or why not? I chose not to have one. Traditionally the purpose of this is for the relatives and friends of the bride and groom to meet and greet one another. Also, the groom's parents inccur the cost. In this day and age, many bride and groom's are paying for their own weddings, so I found this to be unnecessary expense. At first I was going to have a get together at our home for the rehearsal dinner, but when I ended up doing a vast amount of work as well as expense for my own bridal shower, I opted not to do it.
