If you’re in the middle of planning your wedding, you can’t forget about your rehearsal dinner. From selecting a rehearsal dinner venue to deciding what type of menu you’ll offer, this dinner is a big deal! So before you start to put your plans together, here’s what you need to know.
The first thing you’ll need to consider is your guest list. Typically, rehearsal dinners involve the entire wedding party and whoever else will be involved in the wedding ceremony.
This is a chance for your wedding party to meet and get to know one another. You also may want to invite your wedding party’s plus-ones, if applicable. Ultimately who you invite is up to you, but keep in mind that people involved in your ceremony will likely need to be at this dinner and rehearsal event.
It’s also important to pick a great venue. Some things to take into consideration are proximity to the wedding venue, travel time for your guests, and overnight accommodations if applicable. Your venue should be in a place that’s convenient for you and your wedding party to travel to from the wedding venue itself.
