Wedding planning can be exciting, but there are a plethora of things to consider when planning the perfect celebration. Expert advice: a memorable rehearsal dinner is the best way to kick off your wedding weekend!
Pick the Perfect Venue
Just like with your ceremony and reception, choosing the location early is the first step toward having the perfect rehearsal dinner. One popular choice is to host the rehearsal dinner at the bride or groom’s home if there is adequate space available. Renting a tent or canopy can set the scene for an elegant backyard rehearsal dinner.
Choose Delectable Food
Catering is a common option when it comes to feeding your wedding guests, but it isn’t always necessary for the rehearsal dinner. It can be more cost-effective–and more fun–to rent a barbecue, griddle, or steam table to provide your closest friends and family members with a delicious home-cooked meal.
Add Some Elegance
While the rehearsal dinner won’t require as many decore as the wedding itself, including a personal touch goes a long way. Consider adding candles, glassware, and other details like this heartwarming sign to make your rehearsal dinner extra special.
Nothing causes wedding stress like being in a hurry, so take a moment to make sure that your rehearsal dinner schedule makes sense. If you make dinner reservations, be sure to allow enough time for everyone to travel to dinner from your wedding venue, and allow extra time in case your rehearsal runs later than you expect. Regardless of where you have your rehearsal dinner, be sure to end it early enough that you and the members of your wedding party get enough sleep the night before your wedding!
One Step Ahead
Wedding venues, party rentals, and caterers need to be booked several months, or even years, in advance. Like any other part of your wedding, do not wait until the last minute to make any reservations you need for your rehearsal dinner, or you may find yourself with few available options.
