    Everything is falling into place, (got the invitations today! ) but now we are just down to finalizing things such as the rehearsal dinner.

    So my question is: is it proper to invite the Pastor and his wife to the rehearsal dinner? Some people say its sort of expected, its a nice gesture to say thank you. Others say no, not expected or required at all. In fact it never even crossed some peoples minds. I just want to do what best and not be rude.

    I think it's appropriate. We invited the person who married us and his wife to our rehearsal dinner.

    It is appropriate. And a very polite thing to do.

    Yes because they are at the rehearsal right? Whoever is there is who you invite and others if needed. That was what I always thought.

    We were married by a non-clergy member, but she was definitely invited to the dinner. They have to be at the rehearsal, so it seems odd to exclude them when everyone else is headed off to dinner.

    very true thanks so much .

    I thought I'd give an update, so we obviously both decided the right thing to do is to invite the Pastor and his wife. So next step was finding a place. I wanted to have it in the place we met because I thought that would be cute. But they did not have availability, so I decided to call the place across the street. They have the room, great price, only one problem. They are having a "drink and draw" that night. So topless women will be walking around. . They said they will see if they can bring screens with them.
