Traditionally, a rehearsal dinner is a formal event including the wedding party and close family. Normally, it features a fancy dinner, dress clothes, and a few speeches. Basically, almost all rehearsal dinners are the same, but yours can be more unique. Here are three ways to make your rehearsal dinner fun and memorable.
Rethink the Food
Rehearsal dinners often take place at a fancy restaurant, which is nice if that is your style, but there are plenty of other options. When choosing a restaurant and menu, consider your personality and the mood you want to set. Some fun options include home-style BBQ, Chinese food, or a DIY Mexican bar.
Play Some Games
The rehearsal dinner should be an excuse to party and celebrate. Don’t be afraid to include some fun games. Again, consider your personality and the mood you want to set. Some fun options include beer pong or the newlywed game. You can make this extra fun by turning the games into a battle of the sexes.
Just because you are having the rehearsal dinner at a restaurant, doesn’t mean you can’t decorate. Some options include fun centerpieces, lights, pictures, and favors. You may choose to coordinate the decorations with your wedding theme or you could choose a unique theme just for the occasion.
