Your rehearsal dinner is one of the last pre-wedding celebrations you will plan. So why not try something different? Couples who want to steer away from the traditional dinner should opt for one of these ideas instead!
BBQ/Cookout Rehearsal Dinner
This is a great idea for couples who want to have a casual backyard bash before their big day. You’ll love getting together with everyone in a laid-back atmosphere. Plus guests can even bring one of their favorite dishes to add to the menu, as well!
Lobster/Crab Cake Dinner
If seafood is one of your favorite meals then you should totally opt for this rehearsal idea! Great for summer weddings, you and your guests can spend the evening cracking claws while enjoying each other's company. This also can be held at someone’s home or even at a great local seafood spot!
Fiesta/Food Truck Rehearsal Dinner
Think taco food trucks and build your own burritos! A fiesta rehearsal dinner is a great option for couples who want a fun-filled party. Decor can include Mexican papel picado banners and even woven serape table runners!
Cocktail Hour Rehearsal Dinner
This dinner idea is perfect for couples who want their rehearsal dinner to be in between the hours of 5 to 8P.M. Your menu can include a variety of finger foods and appetizers that pair well with certain cocktails. Guests will love being able to mix and mingle and it won’t feel as formal as a regular sit down meal.
Dessert Rehearsal Dinner
Have your guests join you after dinner where you can both indulge in sweet eats and drinks. Couples who really have a sweet tooth will love this option! It can be held either at home or at a restaurant where you can spend the evening tasting different desserts. Also, you won’t have to worry about planning a dinner for everyone. Instead you can have a more intimate dinner before your rehearsal!
