Ladies, ladies, ladies! We all know planning for your big day is a HUGE deal. There’s no doubt about it. But trust me when I say, the planning process doesn’t stop with just the wedding day. Don’t make the mistake of overlooking your wedding rehearsal AND rehearsal dinner in particular.
This past Friday evening, I was subjected to something unbelievable. Something so unusual I could hardly believe my eyes. I think I rubbed them a few times just to make sure. My husband and I (plus brother, sis-in-law and nephew) were at a local restaurant, very close to our house – a quaint little pizza place with a capacity of about 40 seated. When we walked in, several of the tables were reserved for a party that called in a mere THREE hours earlier to book a 7:30pm reservation for a REHEARSAL DINNER, 30 people in total! Being a planner myself, I almost fell over. I mean, why spend months (sometimes years) planning your wedding day, and then completely neglect your duties on the rehearsal dinner?!? Blasphemy!
