Rehearsal dinners are more than just an evening affair to “rehearse the wedding,” the night before your big day—it’s a wonderful occasion to meet members of the “other side of the family” or “ extended members of your new family” and bond with your loved ones in an intimate setting. It can be just as formal or informal as you like! Just remember to include everyone in your wedding party with their significant other and anyone who has traveled down specifically for your wedding as well as the officiant.
