Need Help - What to call it - Rehearsal Dinner or Welcome Dinner or something else...

Recommended Posts

here is the issue...we are having an actual rehearsal the day before the wedding, we are following it with a rehearsal dinner and are hosting all of our guests for this rehearsal dinner. we are thinking maybe we should call it something else since not everyone is invtied to the actual rehearsal. we don't want to call it a welcome dinner b/c we are hosting a welcome to molokai event on wednesday night when everyone arrives.

 

any ideas on what to call it or how to make it clear that everyone is invited?

 

thanks girls! :)grouphug.gif

i was in a wedding that all the out of town guests were invited to the rehearsal dinner, but not the actual rehearsal. the schedule had the rehearsal (wedding party only) and rehearsal dinner (all out of town guests welcome) on it so there was no confusion.

I think calling it a rehearsal dinner is just fine. I think most people understand the logistics as far as the actual rehearsal is for those in the wedding and the dinner is for all of those from out of town (or in our cases, everyone,ha). But a flyer with the details would be nice either before everyone leaves for the occasion or upon their arrival.

You can still call it a Rehearsal Dinner.

 

We are doing pretty much the same thing -- but we are asking for people to respond if they want to attend b/c we don't anyone to feel obligated to spend their free vacation time with us if they'd rather just chill and enjoy the resort. Plus, we have to have a set menu and tell them how many people will be attending. But we are calling it a Rehearsal Dinner.

I had the same problem, so we decided to forgo a title and just wrote "Please join us beachside for a dinner in honor of... on the eve of their wedding" or something to that effect. Anyway, I think calling it a rehearsal dinner is just fine too :)

I like this idea and it helped answer my question of how to have a rehearsal and rehearsal dinner without offending guests.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
