I'm having a beach wedding the first weekend in June. Formal, sit down dinner to follow.
For my rehearsal, it's going to be small and just the wedding party and immediate family.. I like the idea of a rehearsal brunch the morning of the wedding as opposed to the night before?
Is this tacky? We live about an hour and a half from the beach area. I figured it'd be easier to get everyone there the morning of (prior to hair and makeup at noon, etc.) then coming and paying for a room the night before. Or worse, coming, drinking at the dinner and driving home, to come back in the morning.
This way no one rushes after work to get to the rehearsal, or worse - leaves work. It should be more convenient and be simple enough so that there aren't too formal dinners in a row?
