This morning, at 10:00 am, we had a great rehearsal for tomorrow's wedding. The wedding party went to a lovely luncheon afterward. So who says you have to have a rehearsal dinner?
Having an earlier ceremony rehearsal means plenty of time to relax with your friends and family the day before the wedding. Plus, if you are planning to decorate your own venue (not that we recommend that!) you would have plenty of time to do so. The guys could play a round of golf, since afternoon tee times are much easier to get. The girls have time for a mani/pedi without walking into the venue with still-wet nails. Or here on the First Coast, you have time to hit the beach with your buds!
Of course, if you have lots of people traveling for your wedding, or getting time off work is an issue, a morning rehearsal may not work for you. But why not investigate the option?
Bonus for the groom's parents: brunch or lunch menus tend to be lower priced than dinners, and you won't need as much alcohol!
Would you consider having a rehearsal brunch or luncheon?
