As a couple who is about to get married, you want everything connected to the Big Day to be absolutely spectacular, beautiful and unforgettable – and the rehearsal dinner makes absolutely no exception from the rule. Details are important, so don’t forget about rehearsal dinner flowers.
What are some of the most important things to remember when planning a rehearsal dinner? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.
- The money. Although traditionally the parents of the grooms are the ones expected to pay for the rehearsal, the truth is that nowadays, almost anything works. However, do make sure to decide this from the very beginning! No one wants to fight over who is providing rehearsal dinner flowers!
- The timing. You need to make sure you time your rehearsal dinner the right way. Because it will take place before the Big Day and because you want to be fresh for the upcoming event, we highly suggest you set the ceremony rehearsal and the dinner as early in the day as possible. Remember that the ceremony rehearsal will last for about 30-45 minutes, so plan accordingly. If things go too long, your rehearsal dinner flowers may wilt.
- The theme. Choose a theme that’s different from what you have already chosen for the wedding day and play with it. Generally speaking, the rehearsal dinner is expected to be less formal than the wedding, so you might have a bit more freedom with the theme (so if you plan on having a very fancy ballroom wedding, you can definitely have a garden-inspired outdoor rehearsal, with lots of outdoor rehearsal dinner flowers).
- The guest list. The rehearsal dinner guest list should include the wedding party, the parents and all the other members of the “VIP” list. At the same time, if you have out-of-town guests who will be in town for the rehearsal, you should invite them too – and you should also invite the officiant and his/her spouse as well.
