Here’s an example of the type of Q/A advice Simon will be sharing with our readers:
Question- Who do we invite to the rehearsal dinner?
Simon: Traditionally you invite the families, ushers, groomsmen and bridesmaids. I’m finding that these days that guest list is much, much larger. Invite only the necessary people to the ceremony rehearsal but think about inviting all your guests to the dinner, you don’t have to pick up their tabs or buy their booze. I suggest picking up the tabs for the people who attend the ceremony rehearsal but not the rest of the guests. This will give the guests a chance to meet each other before the reception. This will take away any awkward moments at the dinner table the next day because they have a chance to meet, chat and share a cocktail or two. I have heard from numerous guests that they love a pre party before the reception on the big day.
