The Rehearsal Dinner is usually offered the day before the wedding and traditionally is sponsored by the groom parents in gratitude to the parents of the bride but nowadays is very common to share the expenses among both families. Or it is now common that the Bride and the Groom offered this dinner as a Welcome Party in gratitude to all their guests for coming and share this special day with them!
One of the purposes of this celebration is to rehearse the wedding ceremony prior to the wedding day, so the day of the wedding every guest on the Wedding Party will know exactly what to do and where to stand or sit. The Rehearsal is followed by the Rehearsal Dinner!
The Bride and the Groom can decide if they only invite the Wedding Party and close family to the Rehearsal Dinner or invite all the guests and celebrate with all a Welcome Party!
