Rehearsal luncheon, anyone?

I was lucky enough to attend the rehearsal luncheon this afternoon for Regina and Richard (getting married tomorrow). This is the first time I have had a client do a luncheon, and it was such a great idea!

If you for some reason cannot have the rehearsal and dinner two days before the wedding (which I always recommend as it ensures a day of rest in between the dinner and the wedding- sometimes the rehearsal dinner can be as big a party as the wedding!), then a luncheon is a great alternative. That way you (and your guests) will be able to enjoy time with each other, and still be able to go to bed at a good time and wake up the next day feeling rested. It also gives you a chance to relax or run any last minute errands in the evening. Sounds ideal, right?

A luncheon can also be a cost saving alternative to dinner if you are at all on a budget. Lunch prices across the board are lower than dinner prices, and your guests may not run up as big a bar tab in the afternoon as opposed to the evening (of coure, there are always exceptions to this). Either way, a luncheon is great to consider when planning your rehearsal celebration.
