When it comes to planning your rehearsal dinner, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time actually, well, planning it!
Whether your wedding budget is $6,000 or $60,000, if you’re anything like us you want a rehearsal dinner that’s fun, won’t break the bank, and is most of all EASY. This is your time to relax the night before your big day, not stress about more fees and tabs.
Some of the easiest (and tastiest) food to serve to large groups is Italian. From chicken and pastas to salads and breadsticks with delicious sauces, the great thing about ordering catering from Olive Garden is that no matter what city you live in or are holding your destination wedding at, chances are you’ll be able to find one.
And when it comes to serving Italian at your rehearsal dinner, don’t stop at the food! One of my favorite things to do when planning an Italian dinner party is to make sure I have plenty of bottles of Chianti (my go-to budget Italian red wine), lace tablecloths with potted herbs and flickering candles on each, and a little (well, a lot!) of Frank Sinatra in the background.
Aside from the food, music is KEY at a wedding or rehearsal dinner. Chances are you haven’t seen some of your rehearsal dinner guests in a while (whether they’re aunts and uncles from out of town or friends you haven’t seen since college), you want the night to be laid back, unpretentious, and a great way to kick off your wedding weekend.
