Winner, Winner, Rehearsal Dinner!
Whether you have an extravagant backyard soiree, or an elegant venue-style event in mind, your rehearsal dinner is an opportunity to mingle with your closest friends and family before you tie the knot. Don’t feel overwhelmed about whom to invite. The rehearsal dinner should primarily include the wedding party and their plus one, the officiant and their spouse, and your immediate family members.
Think of the rehearsal dinner as the summation of your wedding planning events leading into your big day. Generally held on the eve of the wedding, this dinner-style gathering often features hors d’oeuvres, sippable cocktails, and the ethereal sounds of a jazz trio (or the music of your liking).
There is no specific way to do it, however, the traditional route is to have the parents of the groom do the hosting. In this day and age, anyone ranging from friends, relatives, to the bride and groom themselves can arrange the rehearsal dinner (and pick up the tab as well).
