Rehearsal Dinner Basics

Posted on by destinbayweddings

H-38As one of the most popular event venues in Destin, one of our favorite events to host is a wedding rehearsal dinner. The excitement of the family and friends fills the room as they come together to rehearse for the couple’s big day. The night sets the tone for the pending wedding celebration and kicks off the festivities! Here are few basic tips from our professional wedding planners on how to make sure your rehearsal dinner in Destin is perfect!

#1 Choose a Theme. Ok, so you have this fabulous beach wedding planned. Now, you can really have some fun with the rehearsal dinner.  Maybe you want to incorporate some fun things from your first date or how you met. Do you want rustic or tropical? Seafood or Barbecue? Having a sense of what you want will make the planning much easier.

#2 Make the guest list. Of course, you will want to invite family and anyone in the wedding party. If you are having a destination wedding, it is considerate to invite any out of town guests who will be arriving that day. If your list begins to grow too long, then you can always opt for cocktails and heavy appetizers instead of a formal dinner.

#3 Find the right place. A great location and beautiful setting are very Important. If you are planning a rehearsal dinner in Destin, we invite you to come by and look at our amazing space!

#4 Gifts! It is tradition to present the wedding party with gifts during the rehearsal dinner. Any parents that are in attendance should be given a token of appreciation as well.

#5 Have fun! The people that mean the most to you are coming together to celebrate you finding love. Relax and enjoy your night!
