With all the time and hard work that goes into planning a wedding, the last thing anyone wants is a rehearsal dinner that makes things even more complicated – and costly! Avoid the stress and save the dough by using our favorite tips to host a guaranteed foolproof rehearsal dinner bar, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Olive Garden.
Set Up A Simple Buffet Bar
A rehearsal dinner is a special evening for the bride, groom and their countless family members and friends. Focus on enjoying the night and creating memories by preparing a simple buffet bar with catered food that ensures no hassle and plenty of options of delicious food for your guests (we prefer Olive Garden catering).
With Olive Garden, you can order everything you need, from their delicious signature salad to their tasty Five Cheese Ziti al Forno and Fettuccine Alfredo to everyone’s favorites – Lasagna and warm, yummy breadsticks. And, with Olive Garden, there are plenty of choices at a great price which means you’ll be getting plenty of flavor for the value.
Don’t Stress About Style
Decorating for a rehearsal dinner can seem challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. Choose a simple decor style that complements your catering. To pair with our food from Olive Garden, we chose Italian-inspired decor. A simple red-lined rustic table runner was the perfect set-up for our modern serving dishes that made transferring the food from catering packaging a breeze. To add a memorable touch to the buffet table, we added fresh and aromatic herbs like rosemary and basil in cute tin cans. The best part? They double as an addition to your buffet bar, giving guests an easy way to pick fresh herbs to garnish their dishes!
Every couple cherishes their guest book from their wedding day. Each page is full of wonderful notes of love from family and friends. Experience that joy at your rehearsal dinner bar by buying glass-writing pens for your guests to leave cute comments on the wine bottles. Not only does this save you the money and time of buying a guest book, but it makes sure that every step of your wedding is remembered for years to come.
