Why You Should Have a Rehearsal Dinner

Like grilling? A backyard BBQ rehearsal dinner can be the perfect low key event.

Like grilling? A backyard BBQ rehearsal dinner can be the perfect low key event.

In the middle of wedding planning, planning one more event can seem like a slow death by water torture. But, the rehearsal dinner, can be a great outlet for you, the groom, to let your personality shine.

Typically, the dinner is held at someone’s house or a restaurant and is a more casual event than the wedding. If your suggestions for barbeque or pizza were rejected for the wedding itself, you can feel free to bring them out for the rehearsal dinner. This is also a great time for a sports-themed or funny groom’s cake.

Most importantly though, the rehearsal dinner is a more intimate event than the wedding. You’ll be surrounded only by your nearest and dearest, so feel free to let your friends get a little emotional and personal with their toasts, and feel free to do the same yourself—you big softy.
