To make any rehearsal dinner a success, you need to do careful planning and ensure that every guest is kept current on the plans. The rehearsal dinner has been pre-wedding tradition for a long time. This time is special, gathering the wedding party and family to spend time dining together and talking about the upcoming wedding. The more organized your plans are, the better time everyone will have. To make your rehearsal dinner a success, consider some of the following tips:
  • Location - Keep in mind that not everyone will live nearby so try to choose a place that is a good central location so everyone will drive approximately the same distance. Remember that some family might be from out of town and therefore, not have transportation, which will need to be arranged.

  • The groom's side of the family is traditionally responsible for the financial aspect of the rehearsal dinner just as the bride's side is traditionally responsible for the wedding expense. However, more and more both sides for the bride and groom are sharing this expense. The proper way to handle this is to have the bride's mother talk to the groom's mother and determine how they want to handle the responsibility.

  • While the rehearsal dinner is designed for the bride, groom, wedding party, and close family members, it is perfectly acceptable to have close friends not in the wedding party and other family and/or friends from out of town to join in the festivities.

  • The rehearsal dinner is a special time for everyone to chat. The groom's father traditionally proposes the first toast to the bride and her family, then the best man goes second, toasting the bride and groom, the groom toasts his bride and her family, and finally, the bride proposes a toast to her future husband and his family. Additionally, the rehearsal dinner is the appropriate time for the bride and groom to thank the wedding party and present them with special gifts for sharing in this special day.

  • There is no right or wrong regarding the place or atmosphere created for the rehearsal dinner. Some dinners are quite formal while others are held on the beach. The decision is completely up to the bride and groom. Just remember that this is a time of celebration.

  • Traditionally, the rehearsal dinner is held the night before the wedding. For this reason, many people will leave early in preparation for next day's wedding. However, the dinner can be two days before the wedding, allowing people to stay out longer. In either case, if some guests want to leave early in the evening, it is perfectly fine for the bride and groom, to recommend that those individuals remaining meet at a local nightspot or take a tour of the city.
