Are grooms parents responsible for paying out-of-town guests at rehearsal dinner if they are not part of the wedding party?

The groom's parents are only responsible for paying out of town guests at rehearsal dinner for: Parents of the bride (some parents are divorced and one ex may live out of town or both live out of town, but often the out of town parents of the bride will pay their own way if they can financially afford it); Maid of honor; bridesmaids; flower girl or ring bearer. Any other relatives or friends that are not in the wedding party should pay their own way.
