It is okay for you not to have a rehearsal dinner. No fixed rules, etiquette, or laws forbid you from skipping this tradition. Some couples have their own reasons why they decided not to have a rehearsal dinner.
Due to financial constraints or the lack of extra cash, some couples decide to have a simple and small wedding. So, a rehearsal dinner is usually not included in their checklist.
Most of the time, invitations are sent out to the guests a few days or weeks before the dinner rehearsal. So, having a rehearsal dinner with only a few would waste time and money.
