Your ceremony rehearsal and rehearsal dinner can be thought of as the final pre-wedding events before your big day arrives, and they both serve important roles. Your ceremony rehearsal can help everyone who will be at the altar with you feel comfortable with meeting their cues on the day itself. Your rehearsal dinner will give you a chance to gather with your wedding party, your parents, and anyone else you welcome to the event. This may feel like a chance to take a breath before your wedding day preparations, but there is a level of tradition people can place on this event, and proper planning can be important.
Who Should Join Us At The Rehearsal Dinner?
Your wedding party will join you at your rehearsal dinner, along with both sets of parents, and other close relatives, like siblings who are not in the wedding party. If you have guests coming from out of town, you can invite them to your rehearsal dinner, or plan a separate gathering to show your appreciation to them for traveling.
Who Should Plan And “Host” The Rehearsal Dinner
Hosting a rehearsal dinner does not mean having everyone over to your place, but it does suggest responsibility in arranging, and paying for, the event. Parents of the groom will typically be the ones to plan, and cover the cost of, this dinner.
What Kind Of Moments Should You Plan For Your Rehearsal Dinner?
While some couples prefer a quieter, more laid-back rehearsal dinner, others will have more formal moments. The father of the groom may offer up a toast at the start of the dinner, and you can use this time to give thank-you gifts out to your wedding party.
