Why Should You Have a Rehearsal Dinner?

While getting married is one of the happiest moments of your life, planning for the wedding can also be one of the most stressful. A huge amount of work goes into planning a wedding, and you likely have several different events and parties leading up to the big day. Because of this, you might consider foregoing a rehearsal dinner when you already have so much else going on. While everything that goes into your wedding should reflect what you and your spouse enjoy, a rehearsal dinner is one tradition you should keep.

Here are a few great benefits of having a rehearsal dinner for your wedding.

Make Introductions

In some cases, you might not have gotten the chance to meet all of your soon-to-be-spouse’s friends and family yet, and vice versa. While you’ll have plenty of time over the years to get to know everyone, you don’t want to be strangers at the wedding. The rehearsal dinner is the perfect chance to get to spend time with your closest loved ones and get to know your soon-to-be-family members. It’s also likely that some of your friends and family haven’t met your spouse’s friends and family yet. A rehearsal dinner before the wedding allows everyone to be introduced and get to know one another a little better.

Welcome Guests from Out of Town

You might be having friends and family come in from all over to celebrate your big day. However, this can be a lot of traveling for one day of festivities. If you know that many of your close loved ones will be making a big trip to attend the wedding, a rehearsal dinner is a perfect chance to welcome them and catch up, which you might not have much time for on the day of the wedding. While your wedding is all about you, you also want your guests to enjoy it and have a good time.

Treat Your Wedding Party Following the Rehearsal

The rehearsal itself is something you absolutely shouldn’t skip so you can ensure everything runs smoothly on the day of the wedding. When your wedding party and other close loved ones spend the day preparing for your wedding, you want to be able to treat them after. If you have a rehearsal, you shouldn’t just leave your wedding party to make their own dinner plans that night. A nice dinner together is the perfect way to end the day after your rehearsal and shows your appreciation for everyone involved. 

Enjoy the Time Before Your Wedding

While the moments leading up to your wedding can feel overwhelming, it will be over before you know it. When things move by so quickly, you want to do everything you can to enjoy it as much as possible. After the wedding, you might miss all the preparation and events that led up to it, and you’ll look back at things like the rehearsal dinner and be happy you did them. As the rehearsal dinner will be much more intimate than the wedding itself, you can enjoy quality time with the people you’re closest to.
