New Wedding rehearsal dinner trends


WHEN IT COMES TO REHEARSAL DINNERS AND PRE-WEDDING WELCOME RECEPTIONS COUPLES ARE GETTING CREATIVE! HERE TO TALK ABOUT SOME RECENT WEDDING REHERSAL TRENDS IS LISA ANTONECCHIA FROMNG CREATIVE CONCEPTS BY LISA. LONG GONE ARE THE DAYS SITTING IN A “PRIVATE ROOM” AT A RESTAURANT, INSTEAD COUPLES ARE SETTING THE STAGE WITH MORE CASUAL “EXPERIENCES” FOR THEIR GUESTS. THE MOST POPULAR TREND FOR THE REHEARSAL DINNER IS THE FOOD TRUCK AT THE FAMILY HOME. BUT KEEP IN MIND THIS DOESN’T COME WITHOUT A PRICE! IF YOU ARE INVITING ALL YOUR OUT OF TOWNT GUESTS YOU MAY NEED TO THINK ABOUT A TENT AND TABLES AND CHAIRS FOR THE DINNER, IF IT IS INTIMATE YOU MAY HAVE A COST MINIMUM TO THINK ABOUT! IF YOU ARE ALREADY DOING A TENTED WEDDING THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO GET TWO EVENTS UNDER THE SAME TENT, WHICH YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR! JUST REMEMBER TO GET ENOUGH LINENS AND BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP THAT NIGHT, BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY! IF YOU HAVE LIQUOR AT YOUR WELCOME DINNER, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIRING A BARTENDING SERVICE, NOT ONLY ALLOWING THEM TO DO THE WORK BUT ALSO CARRY PROPER INSURANCE AND HAVE BARTENDERS THAT ARE CERTIFIED TIPS SAFE. LIABILITY IS A VERY IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION! TAKE IT ONE MORE STEP AND PURCHASE EVENT/WEDDING INSURANCE IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING AT YOUR HOME, TYPICALLY RUNS AROUND $180-$200 AND IS WORTH IT TO ENSURE YOU HAVE EXTRA COVERAGE. ANOTHER TREND IS TO HAVE A SMALL REHEARSAL DINNER AND THEN AT YOUR HOTEL HAVE A WELCOME RECEPTION WITH A BAR AND SWEET TREATS LATER IN THE NIGHT FROM AROUND 8PM TO10PM, THIS IS A GREAT WELCOME FOR ALL YOUR GUESTS BUT STILL ALLOWING THE BRIDAL OR WEDDING PARTY TO HAVE THEIR CELEBRATORY DINNER. FIND A CREATIVE WAY TO START OF THE WEDDING WEEKEND THAT IS NOT GOING TO BREAK THE BANK, A SUNDAE BAR WITH CORDIALS AND DESSERT BEVERAGES IS A WONDERFUL WELCOME! OR PASTRY AND CAPPUCCINO! MAKE IT DIFFERENT AND FUN! NN
