What to expect, what to do and how, a short guide for the rehearsal wedding time
We know that the pursuit of happiness is the pursuit of perfection for any bride and her partner, husband to be. In the name of that and tradition counted too a rehearsal dinner is expected to be planned. Take it as another gathering with lovely people and at the same time practical to guide them and explain how things should go that day. Is there a code to follow? Today we deepen into this subject, coming with rehearsal dinner etiquette.
First and foremost comes the concern about the location, date, time, and whom to invite. Choose the date after you have all the things about the wedding established and it can be in the last month so 3 to 4 weeks before the event. But after all any time is a good time instead of no rehearsal dinner, mostly when you are conditioned about booking a date at a restaurant and so on.
Usually it is a menu with no pretenses and the guests are the ones you want to be, with the remainder to be people in your wedding, from groomsmen to bridesmaids, family, relatives and a few friends. Who pays for everything? Traditionally and how the wedding etiquette dictates it should be all in the groom’s parents list of task and expenses.
Are gifts expected to give or receive? The rehearsal dinner etiquette says this can be a perfect time to give gifts to the bridesmaids, groomsmen and flower girls or parents but the ones you had prepared for them as wedding gifts and when it comes about gifts from guests it is the same way or not even that. No favors, no expenses in this way.
Some interpret this just like a dinner and that’s it, with no pretenses of any kind but wishes and words of praise for the couple.
