Planning a Rehearsal Dinner


A Rehearsal Dinner is a pre-wedding ceremony, typically held immediately after the ceremony rehearsal. Guests are, of course, the bride and groom, bridal party and close family and friends, particularly those who will play a part in the wedding ceremony. The Rehearsal Dinner provides the bride and groom an occasion to thank those who participated in the wedding preparations and give both sides of the family an opportunity to meet before the wedding day.
