Tip of the Day: "A lot of couples feel the need to invite everyone in town to the rehearsal dinner, and it is just not necessary," says Jamie Bohlin from Cape Cod Celebrations. Cut down on costs by hosting a rehearsal dinner for the bridal party and immediate family members, followed by a welcome party where you open it up to all of the guests for drinks and desserts. If you can afford to host it, great! If not, you could always select a location just to have out-of-town guests meet for a drink that evening, and everyone covers their own cocktails.
