Rehearsal Dinner Ideas

Wedding planning is such a busy time, that the rehearsal dinner is often one of the last things on your mind. Rehearsal dinners are a special time for family and friends to get together one last time before the wedding to celebrate the couple in a smaller, more intimate setting. So we want it to be special, thought-for, and fun! Here are a few rehearsal dinner ideas that are unique and very tasty!

1. Food Truck

There have been many Bradford Brides who have brought in food trucks for their rehearsal dinners or weddings. Food trucks are a unique way to feed your guests by spicing up a traditional sit-down rehearsal dinner. Why have one truck, when you can have three? Give your family and friends some fun options with the food trucks you choose. One can be BBQ, one can be seafood, and why not throw in a grilled cheese food truck!

Food stations are another way to give your family and friends options for the rehearsal dinner, and this time it's not on wheels! Setting up food stations around the room gives your guests easy access to all the different types of food. From a taco bar to a sushi station, there are endless options for individual stations. Don't forget about dessert! How about a fun s'mores bar or a cookies and milk station?

3. Sit-down Dinner

If you're more traditional, there is nothing wrong with an intimate plated dinner! Let your family and friends relax after the rehearsal as dinner and dessert is served to them. This limits the distraction of guests getting up to get seconds, so all the focus can be on you and your soon-to-be spouse!
