Is this as tacky a I think?
My daughter's future MIL was unhappy that we "limited" their part of the guest list to 150 (!) which is the same as our list. This means that she is unable to invite all of her husband's employees and spouses (60 in all.) She has chosen, instead, to invite them to the rehearsal dinner, and to have a gift table there!!! I am appalled and embarrassed that we will be in any way associated with this. She is a wealthy, bull-headed woman, used to getting her way, but clearly lacking in the area of etiquette. I had suggested, when she expressed her disappointment, that she and her husband host a small, post-honeymoom party or reception for the happy couple for the employees. No dice. Has anyone else ever heard of inviting to the rehearsal dinner people not invited to the wedding?
