The Casual Rehearsal Dinner

The hubby and I had a great big barbecue for our rehearsal dinner – red + white checkered tablecloths and all. We knew Saturday night’s wedding festivities would be fairly formal, so we wanted everyone to feel comfortable on Friday night. We had a denim dress code, piles of barbecue, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, iced tea, beer, cobbler and ice cream – and it was so very us. Though I’ve been to rehearsal dinners at very swanky, very chic restaurants, there’s something so warm about a relaxed version of the night. Your night-before-the-big-day vibe also depends on the number of guests, whether you’ll be hosting out-of-town guests, family and wedding party only, or the whole entire wedding (we had the whole gang because our wedding was a destination wedding with guests flying in that afternoon, a.k.a., some very hungry guests!)

Are you going casual or formal for the rehearsal dinner? Do you have big numbers of rehearsal dinner guests or are you keeping it intimate?
