Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After in Marina del Rey

Traditionally, the rehearsal dinner takes place on the eve of the wedding (or sometimes a day or two prior depending on scheduling) and is the practice run of the wedding ceremony. The exact history of this tradition is not clear. Still, it likely began when wedding celebrations became large, personalized affairs that required bridesmaids and groomsmen to have a walk-through or practice run so they would know where to stand and when to walk, and then is followed by a meal. Both families, out-of-town guests, and the wedding party gather, and it is an opportunity for those who have not yet met for the “party before the party,” as a way to kick off celebrations There are many wedding traditions, but none are as enjoyable and worry-free as a rehearsal dinner. The big day can often bring stress for the couples and families (as well as some nerves) and this is an opportunity for those closest to the couple to begin the festivities and have a quiet and relaxed evening (or loud depending upon the group) and get acquainted. The heart of the tradition is being together, extending hospitality to those who have supported you, and sharing a special time before the wedding.
