Planning a rehearsal dinner should be fun and exciting. Here are some rehearsal dinner ideas that can lessen your stress and allow you to embrace and enjoy every minute of the planning process.

Before you start your plans, talk to your couple and ask what type of dinner they would like.
Rehearsal dinner invitations invite family, friends, and out-of-town guests to the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner is hosted after the wedding rehearsal, usually the night before the wedding ceremony. It’s a time for a close-knit group of people, usually just the bride, groom, and their immediate families to kick back and have a good time. However, if friends and out-of-town guests are coming to, it’s appropriate to send out rehearsal dinner invitations. These needn’t be elaborate or spectacular. Whimsical, succinct, clear messages are best in this situation.
