Rehearsal Dinner Ideas

The kickoff event to the wedding, the rehearsal dinner gathers friends and family from near and far to celebrate the eve of the wedding-to-be. It's usually held right after the ceremony walk-through. Scope our endless rehearsal dinner ideas, which include big formal dinners, laid-back barbeques, festive pub fetes, and cozy meals right in the backyard. Planning a wedding rehearsal dinner requires some thought and careful coordination. Search our site to find out all the important details, such as who typically hosts the event, whom to invite, where to include the information, what happens, and the logistics of the rehearsal itself. Since this is a more intimate occasion than the wedding, and your closest friends and family will all be gathered in the same place, toasts are usually the main event. Serving food family style is a great way to encourage conversation, since many guests will be meeting each other for the first time. Why not get more festive and have a rehearsal dinner theme? Click on our creative ideas for color schemes, location-based ideas, activity-centered themes, as well as options for rehearsal dinner decorations. From a nautical New England rehearsal dinner and a country club rehearsal dinner in Nashville to a rehearsal dinner on a Mexican farm, our galleries of real couples' rehearsal dinners can give you inspiration for the look and feel.
