I've been to very few weddings and am unclear as to what a rehearsal dinner entails. Any guidance in this department would be much appreciated.
We are planning on a pre-wedding cocktail attire dinner the night before with only our two parties and immediate family members present. That's 21 guests total, including ourselves. We will also have our photographer there to capture candids during this time.
The idea is to make this our fun time with close family and friends, complete with any silly speeches and dancing that may have occurred at a lengthier reception on our wedding day.
Has anyone done a pre-wedding dinner of the sort that could advise?
