Rehearsal Dinner To Do's

Recommended Posts

Okay now I've decided to to a private rehearsal dinner on the beach!! What have y'all done for a private dinner like this? I asked if we could get a sound system for music (IPOD). But what else? DO we have to arrange centerpieces and all? We are having a buffet dinner. Will candles even work near the beach, with the wind and all?

 

How did your rehearsal dinner go?

Any tips? Thanks!!!

I would see what the resort has already, the beach itself is decor right. maybe get some votive and some starfish. nothing too flashy, you don't want it to compete with your big day.

We are doing our rehearsal dinner in doors at Dreams (Portofino) but we are having it be a Mexican theme. They are covering the tables for us with Mexican blankets and we are using the white candles they already have. I am creating really cheap bright place cards. I'll post shortly. We are renting a sound system from them for Ipod and microphone for speeches. Our goal is to not have to do much for the rehearsal dinner, so I would suggest to check with what the resort can provide you as Christine mentioned.

Except for being a flower girl twice, this is my first time in a wedding party. What happens at the dinner rehearsal? Like is there any speeches or practice to see where everyone sits?

 

I am totally CLUELESS! haha

LOL me too! I'm not having one for that reason, we'll just break off at the welcome dinner to discuss the order but that's about it. It's hard to get to my wedding site so I think a rehearsal is out even if I tried.
