The Key to an Unforgettable Rehearsal Dinner

Although some couples may not give much importance to this, the rehearsal dinner is, in fact, part of the Big Day “previews”. Therefore, you will surely want to create a special atmosphere there, and then leave guests wanting for more for the following day, the Big One.

What is the key to an unforgettable rehearsal dinner? How do you plan this pre-wedding event in a beautiful, unique, and genuinely non-stressful way? We have some tips for you – read on to find out more.


  • It should be amazing, but not necessarily in a way that competes to the Big Day. In other words, if you are having a really elegant and luxurious wedding, you will want to go one or two steps lower on the “luxury” scale with the rehearsal dinner.
  • Bear in mind: just because this is the rehearsal and not the “real thing”, it doesn’t mean you cannot bring delicious foods and drinks here. On the contrary: guests will be delighted to have a good bite and prepare for the next day.
  • Want to save money on the rehearsal dinner? Book it earlier in the day if your VIP guests are free. It really doesn’t matter if you have your rehearsal at 4 pm or 8 pm – but it can definitely make a pretty big difference in terms of the final price.
  • A theme will help you connect everything from a visual point of view – just like it will do it for the wedding itself too. You don’t have to go overboard with this – even a color-based theme will help you create something really pretty and unforgettable!
