Your rehearsal dinner is much more important than you might give it credit for. Not only is this the right time to set all things clear for all of those VIPs participating in your wedding, but it is the perfect time to help the entire wedding party bond with each other and create some “exclusive” memories all of your rehearsal dinner guests will cherish for the years to come.
How to plan the perfect rehearsal dinner? Here are some tips to help you with this.
- Serve a good meal – preferably, a family-style meal. If you didn’t get the chance to do this with your wedding day, the rehearsal is the perfect time to go casual and simply have a great time with your close friends and relatives. A family-style dinner is the perfect way to achieve that cozy, welcoming vibe!
- Don’t dismiss the idea of having a special theme. You don’t have to go over the top with the flowers and the party motifs – but a well-set theme can help you pull everything together from an aesthetic point of view. Even if it’s just a basic color scheme, it will still work like wonders!
- Create a special dress code. Go casual with the dress code too – invite guests to follow simple rules and have fun with their attires. Do the same yourself as well! And yes, you can definitely wear white (but it is not absolutely compulsory, of course!).
- Record the toasts. You will definitely want to record the toasts given during the wedding – but why not do the same for the rehearsal too? All those jokes and micro-accidents will look lovely on tape when pulled together with the actual Big Day toasts!
