Forget the boredom of sit-down rehearsal dinners the night before your wedding. Today, many couples celebrate their wedding rehearsal on a Miami yacht, in backyards or on sandy beaches. There are hundreds of unique wedding rehearsal ideas that will suit a variety of locations and please every guest.
A BBQ Style Dinner. Relax, kickback and enjoy some finger-lickin’ good foods as you and your fiancé’s family mingle over burgers, hot dogs and baked beans. Arrange picnic tables to allow everyone to interact as they pass grilled favorites down the line. Decorate tables with mason jars, wildflowers and the classic red-and-white checkered tablecloths.
Asian Fusion Cuisine. Go eclectic and select a caterer to supply an exotic assortment of foods from the orient. Add a special touch and hire a sushi chef to create sushi rolls and sashimi served with wasabi and chopsticks. Decorate with a wide array of colorful paper lanterns, origami designs or cast iron tea pots. Centerpieces may include fragrant orchids, lotus blossoms or bonsai trees. Beautiful oriental fans and fortune cookies will make fun favors to complete the evening.
Wines of the World. Throw a wine tasting rehearsal dinner party as if you were dining along the French Riviera or the canals of Venice. Select several different wines of the same grape varietal or from various regions of the world. Discuss the notes you each smell and taste and the difference you taste between vineyards and regions. You may even consider inviting a wine expert to educate you and your guests on selecting the perfect bottle. Décor may focus on a specific wine region or you can create stations themed after wine countries from around the globe. Food service may include cheese, fruits, nuts and gourmet meats.
Afternoon Tea. Bring the excitement of the Kentucky Derby to your home or event venue. Ask guests to join you in dressing in Sunday attire complete with floppy hats and long white gloves. You can serve tea and mini sandwiches and decorate your backyard to resemble a horse track with elegant greenery and winning wreaths and trophies.
Weddings may be a longstanding tradition, but there doesn’t have to be anything traditional about your special day to ensure a good time. Miami Yacht rehearsal dinners include the beauty of the high seas and the convenience and flexibility for you to get very creative with your plans.
