What No One Tells You About the Rehearsal Dinner

reception blog

Thinking of the rehearsal dinner as a part of the wedding, instead think of it as a time to do something fresh and unexpected. Relax and let your hair down as most likely you will be entertained by your closest family and relatives. With very little effort you can assemble a rehearsal dinner that provides a much-needed calm before the big event.


Make it Personal: Add some personal and creative touches by Sharing your love story with your guest, why not let them envy your love story. Host the event in a space that mimics where you met or had your first date.

Time for Fun and Games: Break the ice with those family members you haven’t seen in a while or don’t know with a Scavenger hunt. Incorporate fun facts and exciting details to keep your guest interacting and laughing at the same time.

It’s About the Main Man: Dedicate the rehearsal dinner to the Man of your dreams I mean the wedding IS 99.9% bride picks (let’s be real ladies). Host your event at a place that pays homage to your love such as his local Golf spot or incorporate a beer tasting for your guests with a few of his favorites.

Honor both Backgrounds: Who says you can’t incorporate yours as well as your mans heritage at the rehearsal dinner. Add some traditional music from both cultures or invite a belly dancer to show how you really get down.

 Make your dinner memorable with laughter, fun, food and sharing your love for one another. Suit and tie not required so break out of the traditional rehearsal dinner and grab that Crab bib!
