Sure, its possible that you may have been guilt into making a second cousin, twice removed one of your bridesmaids, but chances are that the majority of individuals in your wedding party will be the people you are closest to and most comfortable with. So plan something that lets you relax and share some laughs with your best pals before the big shindig goes down!
I love the idea of foregoing a traditional sit down dinner with its high formalities, and instead, opting for something a little more down to earth. If the season is right for it, I am all for the idea of having a relaxed backyard BBQ rehearsal dinner. You’re not exactly limited to paper plates and burnt burgers here … and actually, you can really dress this idea up. Take the BBQ theme and run wild with it!
If you’ve never really been what people would call a grill master, opt for a catered BBQ dinner. You can rent rustic wooden bench tables and deck them with classic red and white checkered napkins or tablecloths. I love the idea of having old-style snacks like popcorn or even a snow-cone station. If you can pull it off, I say set up a fire pit for making s’mores at the end of your night. Honestly, the rehearsal dinner is probably the best time to eat something a little messy – no expensive dress to ruin – and, I admit, I just love those ooey-gooey things!
