Each year, there are thousands of weddings that take place. Many of these weddings are planned by the individuals getting married. While planning your own wedding is popular, there are many other couples who make the decision to hire a wedding planner. Each way is popular and successful, but there are some things that you may not know without the assistance of a professional wedding planner.
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. Having just hosted our first rehearsal dinner, I can share some good advice to help put together a wonderful celebration. Before you start your plans, talk to your couple and ask what type of dinner they would like.
What happens at a rehearsal dinner? There are toasts, speeches, expressions of thanks, and other games and trivialities to entertain the guests. Everything is informal and even jokes are in good taste. Sometimes, the couple gets royally roasted. That’s always fun!
The recipient list is very important in the scheme of things. It’s pretty simple. People who have a place in the wedding receive an invite to the rehearsal dinner. This will be the bridal party, the bride’s parents and groom’s parents, and other close people the couple to be would like to invite. Don’t forget the person who delivers the vows. This is a smaller list than the wedding invitation list as it only covers people who actually have a role.
The number of people invited to a wedding rehearsal can vary. There are some couples who invite only the wedding party and others make it a full-fledged party with lots of guest. If you are interested in having a wedding rehearsal dinner, the decision is completely yours. Regardless of how many guests you want to invite, you may want to send out a rehearsal dinner invitation to those you’d like to attend.
