“Before we say I do, let’s raise a glass or two”
Some brides question themselves if they should or should not host a rehearsal dinner. As the wedding planning process is already complex and time consuming itself. Therefore brides tend to overlook the thought of the dinner all together.
Traditionally, the groom’s parents did the honors of incurring and hosting the rehearsal dinner mainly because the bride’s family was responsible for paying for almost all the wedding costs. At this day and age neither of the parents are financially responsible, however most like to help out and divide the costs in order for their offspring’s to have a day to remember.
One of the purposes of this dinner is to bring the two families together and get to know each other on a more relaxed environment before the wedding and of course to also thank everyone who has helped with the planning of this once in a life time event.
Rehearsal dinners are intended to be something along the lines of casual, simple and fun. While others are a little more elaborate when having the wedding itself on a destination location. Try incorporating local flavors of your location. Make your dinner lively and interactive by doing food stations!
Here are a couple of ideas:
