The rehearsal dinner really stumps a lot of couples when it comes to the Do's and Don'ts, formality, who attends etc. While just as many wedding traditions have changed, the rehearsal dinner is really up to you as a couple to decide. However here is the run down on rehearsal dinners: The rehearsal gives you a chance to have a practice run-through of your wedding and can take place either at the ceremony venue location or somewhere off-site if the location isn't available. You can take this time to delegate any wedding-day responsibilities, practice the order of the ceremony and make any adjustments as needed. This time is valuable for introducing members of your wedding party or family who haven't met, and to get some of the jitters out! The rehearsal & rehearsal dinner are typically held the night before your wedding and should be in the early evening so that you and your wedding party can get some rest before the big day.
The grooms family customarily would host and pay for the rehearsal dinner but this can be altered if you as a couple have decided otherwise. The hosts are responsible for food and drink, but if your budget is tight you might consider a cocktail & appetizer mixer, or potluck style dinner rather than something more formal. Plan on inviting your wedding party, immediate family members and their dates. If you have guests from out of town you should consider inviting them as well. The rehearsal dinner is a wonderful time to enjoy with your friends and family here to celebrate with you, and take it from us your wedding day flies by so make the most of every gathering!
