Rehearsal dinners have become a standard part of Connecticut weddings. It is as expected as a funny story in the best man’s toast. So how do you make your rehearsal dinner a truly amazing event?
Choose the right venue
The right venue can make a big difference in the rehearsal dinner. It can be in any restaurant, but for an outstanding rehearsal dinner, look at what your wedding venue offers. If there’s a smaller venue that couldn’t accommodate your full guest list, why not have your rehearsal dinner there?
Add some entertainment
The best rehearsal dinners aren’t silent affairs. They have music, they have dancing, and they have a few toasts. This is a chance for you to celebrate with the members of your immediate family and wedding party, so enjoy it with great entertainment.
Have an end time
While it might seem like a great party should never end, this really isn’t the case on the night before your wedding. Remember that you and everyone at your rehearsal dinner will have to be up early to get ready for your wedding. A great rehearsal dinner won’t be remembered that way if everyone is exhausted and hungover on your wedding day.
