For our upcoming wedding, we plan to leave the scene immediately after the ceremony - forgoing the traditional reception. However, we intend to host a rehearsal dinner the evening prior to the wedding, and most of the people invited to the wedding will be present at this dinner.In light of this, we would like to incorporate the traditional reception activities with our rehearsal dinner.However, not all reception activities are appropriate the night before the wedding (think garter toss, bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc.)So, what activities ARE appropriate for the evening before the wedding? Does anyone have unique or creative ideas on how to make these activities fit more appropriately in the context of a rehearsal dinner?
I'm anxiously awaiting OP to come back and explain why they are leaving immediately after the ceremony.
We could all give our own speculation for their reason. I think they want their "get away" photo op from the church to be the real thing and actually leave their guests standing on the steps waving good-bye to them.
