      Anything goes and it is not necessary, but our welcome dinner ended up to be a highlight of the trip. The first thread below I started when I was on the fence about having one too. Check them all out for different takes on it and ways to do it:

        We are having a Rehearsal Dinner for the wedding party and their spouses and our Photog (and Videographer if we have one) will also be invited to join us.

        Our resort is not charging us for a Rehearsal Dinner b/c we won't privatize the restaurant. Instead, they'll just get us a big reservation. If there was an extra charge, we would have decided to forego it.

        After the dinner, we ill meet up with all guests that want to at one of the bars for cocktails.

          My resort is inlcuding a welcome (or did they call it rehearsal) dinner in my wedding package (even though it's an AI anyway!), for every person booked thru my package, so we will probably do one. If it was going to be an additional expense, I wouldn't do it, cuz I just don't have the budget.

            since i couldn't have a rehearsal, we had a welcome dinner the night before. not necessary at all, but it was fun for everyone to meet eachother.

              We're just going to have a rehearsal/welcome dinner at one of the restaurants not requiring reservation. I am asking the WC to see if she can block a section for us.

                We're not doing a rehearsal, but we are having a dinner after our sailing excursion the day before the wedding, so I guess that's kind of a welcome dinner.
