Wedding Rehearsal Dinner: Can the Bride and Groom Host the Rehearsal Dinner?


Is it improper for the bride and groom to host the rehearsal dinner?


Not at all. Traditionally, the groom's parents plan and host this dinner, but that's not always a possibility for a variety of reasons. Keep in mind that the rehearsal dinner can range from a banquet-style meal at a hotel to a pizza party at your favorite restaurant. You'll be able to have the party you want if you're in charge of planning it.
