The rehearsal dinner to a bride mostly might be the most important event before the actual wedding. They are usually held in the afternoon however it has become a new trend for them to be held late evening. The wedding rehearsal allows all the members of the wedding party to run through their duties to ensure everyone knows what their responsibilities are and that the wedding runs smoothly. Changes at this point may be made if needed. After the wedding rehearsal the wedding party enjoys a rehearsal dinner usually hosted by the groom’s parents. Guests at the rehearsal dinner often include the bride, groom; both parents on each side, clergyperson or judge and of course the members of the wedding party. Spouses or fiancé (e) s of the bridal party including the clergyperson or judge are also invited. During the rehearsal dinner, more gifts may be distributed and the marriage license should be signed if it has already not been done. If you have a large number of people attending your rehearsal, it may be wise to place some place cards. Place cards are a great way to eliminate any confusion on who gets to sit where, and it also allows you to mix both sides of the family together so that they can associate and mingle more.
