Rehearsal Dinner ideas: in the park or in a backyard
Undeniably one of the latest trends is outdoors. After the pandemic people start to enjoy open hair events even more than what they use to do. Why not held your rehearsal dinner in a forest or in a parc? No limit of space and all the natural surroundings will give you plenty options for the décor. Don’t be shy with cushions and lighting. They will add romance the dinner.
Feeling more intimate? Use a backyard. Not all the homes have the proper space, but more and more often is possible to rent the space of someone else’s home.
With all the pros of the parc and forest, backyard has the plus to provide the intimate felling of being home. If there is a pool ask guests to bring swimsuit or rent sofas, blankets and cushion and make it a place where your guests can crash.
BBQ party or pizza night
Unquestionably, food bash works always well. They are friendly and relaxed, suitable also for the guests that will bring kids. There is nothing that more fun to gather together people for an informal dinner.
Add some twinkle lights, wooden tables and benches, serve hamburger, kebabs, salads and corns. Don’t forget to provide some veggie options for vegetarians. Last thing to do is to determine if you want someone at the grill or to call a professional caterer.
Nothing is better than a shared true Italian pizza. To make it even more spectacular call a pizzaiolo and have the pizza prepared in front of the guests.
Offer plenty topping choices and no one will be disappointed. The cheerful vibe of this food will be contagious. People will fee like a unique family. Bonus tip: rent a craft beer truck with a local selection to pair it with the pizza.
Not a proper sit-down meal and great all year around fondue party is perfect for an informal dinner but with a classy twist. Set up different stations, give your guests the opportunity to taste different delicacies, cheese, meats, veggies and bread. Add grazing tables, will help people to socialize and discover new food pairings.
