I have asked some dear friends to help set up for my wedding. Although they are not in the wedding party, should I still invite them to the rehearsal dinner?
You should absolutely, positively invite them to the rehearsal dinner! Even though these friends are not standing up at the wedding as attendants, they are still a big part of the celebration, and you should definitely include them the evening before the wedding. They will surely appreciate the gesture.
