When you are planning a wedding rehearsal dinner, there are lots of ideas out there to make it special. But if hosting at a restaurant surrounded by the bustle of strangers doesn’t feel like your style, there is another option that will make your rehearsal dinner one of a kind. With party rentals from A V Party Rentals, you can bring a wedding rehearsal dinner to your own home.
An Intimate Setting
When you have a rehearsal dinner in a restaurant, even if you have it in the private room of a restaurant there are still servers and other restaurant patrons around during the event and you may want to keep it more private. Having it at home allows you to bring in your favorite catering (or have your aunt make her famous enchiladas!), decorate with special touches and take as long as you need to do it, and keep the guests to only family and friends.
A Special Theme
Turn your backyard into the perfect place to host a rehearsal dinner. We have lots of over the top wedding rehearsal dinner ideas.
Give your special dinner a French flair with an evening soiree using hanging lights, a tent or canopy, candles and French cuisine. Pick a palette of black and white stripes with pink florals and polka dots using small Eiffel Towers as your centerpieces. Don’t forget to add the macarons and madeleines for a special dessert that is sure to please all of your guests.
Spanish Tapas Party
If you want to give your rehearsal dinner a unique flavor, try Spanish tapas dishes. Tapas dishes are meant to be shared with groups and are much more intimate. Present the dishes on colorful platters or earthenware that your guests are sure to enjoy. Try some of the popular dishes like crispy prawns, chorizo slices or frittata. And for dessert, try mantecados (butter cookies) or Spanish polvorones (powder cookies) to finish off your meal. Present them in small boxes as a treat to take home.
Hong Kong Buffet
Who doesn’t love chinese food? Create a beautiful Hong Kong themed dinner with colorful centerpieces featuring candles and bamboo leaves. Transform your yard with romantic arbor rentals. Use glazed ceramic bowls, trays and saucers to serve up the appetizers like steamed pork buns (our favorite), sesame chicken wings or fried wontons. Compliment them with your favorite green tea and almond cookies for dessert. Make sure to call your favorite Chinese restaurant a couple days in advance to place your order. Good food always takes time to make.
