You’ve probably shelled out a hefty amount of money on dresses, flowers, a caterer, a band, gifts for the bridesmaids, maybe even a limo for your approaching wedding. What’s left? The rehearsal dinner. But rest assured; if you’re doing the planning and paying yourself, you can put together a great dining event without spending a lot of moolah. Says theknot.com,
The days of stuffy rehearsal dinners the night before a wedding are over. Today, couples are getting revved up for their wedding day in backyards, bowling alleys and on beaches.
We’ll toast to that!
With a casual , even funky, dinner come all kinds of suggestions for inventive menu items and locale.
For example, if you opt for pizza, add salads – several different kinds – and a jazzy dessert. Pinterest.com has a gold mine of ideas submitted by its huge number of users: lemon sorbet served in hollowed-out lemons, seasonal fruits served in sugary ice cream cones, not to mention more elaborate and imaginative cakes, tortes and pies.
If your guests and family members don’t mind bobbing up and down a bit, host your dinner on a boat. Some city parks and beaches have tables, benches and barbecues. Most don’t charge a fee.
The finishing touch? Riondo Prosecco. It’s not nearly as acidic as Champagne, it goes with just about anything, and the price suits your budget
