You should do your best to have fun with your wedding rehearsal dinner. Just remember that it is meant to be less formal than the main wedding. In other words, your rehearsal dinner should not show up your wedding. If you are having a bit of trouble starting with your plans, here is some advice from us here at Meadows Event Center that should get you out of that funk and moving.

  • Pick A Theme

Again, remember that this is less formal than your wedding so you can do whatever you want. Options like tea time, sports and beach-inspired rehearsal dinners are not out of place. Or you could just go with the usual sit-down rehearsal dinner.

  • Choose A Menu

With most couples, their wedding menu choices usually come down to the last two that they have to pick between. Why not serve the choice that didn’t get picked for the wedding at the rehearsal dinner? Just remember that the best food is party food and you can be as creative as you want.

  • Go for Comfort

With rehearsal dinners, the overall plan is comfort and happiness. Let that influence the color choices, the seating arrangements, the menu, and even the drinks served. The location shouldn’t be too far from where the guests are staying. Your rehearsal dinner is a great time to bring the wedding party together to relax and mingle before the actual wedding.

  • Keep A Tight Guest List

This is not the wedding. No, your great grand aunt does not need to be invited. For the rehearsal dinner, you should invite only the wedding party, their spouses and immediate family. The guest list should be handled by the host, but with valuable input and acceptance from both the bride and the groom. Just keep in mind that it is not another wedding reception.
