Who Should You Invite To Your Rehearsal Dinner?

Your rehearsal dinner, that final event before your special day, can be a welcome moment with close friends and family before your wedding. Of course, it is more than a purely social gathering. The dinner follows your rehearsal for the wedding ceremony, which can make everyone in your wedding party feel more at ease over finding their places, and serving you well at your wedding. At the dinner, you, your partner, and everyone involved in the ceremony can be joined by family. You can also include guests who are traveling to be there on your special day, as a thank you for their effort. 

Taking Proper Advantage Of Your Rehearsal Time

You may be excited to see everyone, and enjoy a nice meal, at your rehearsal dinner, but you shouldn’t think of your rehearsal as something to rush through! The rehearsal time you have can give you important time to give bridesmaids and groomsmen their positions, to make sure your timing is correct with your processional music, and to practice the walk itself. If everyone leaves the rehearsal feeling confident about the ceremony the next day, you can avoid potential awkwardness.

One Thing You Need To Make Sure You Do At Your Rehearsal Dinner – Have Fun!

You want your rehearsal to be a success, and you want to make the most of your rehearsal dinner. With that said, there is something important you should do at your rehearsal – enjoy yourself and have fun. This can be one last moment to laugh and talk with the people you care about before you have to put your energy towards preparing to walk down the aisle. For many couples, it will be the last time they see each other until the ceremony. Give yourself a moment to feel your excitement, and your appreciation for the people in your life.
