The last few years have been filled with my friends getting married. Whether I have been in the bridal party or not, I kept feeling that the rehearsal dinners have been a missed opportunity to connect a large group that may not necessarily all know each other. Whether it’s creating friendships between groomsmen and bridesmaids or fostering bonds between members of both families, the rehearsal dinner is a great way to start out your wedding on a positive note. The ideas below have one overarching theme – activity! Activities allow conversations to emerge a bit more naturally, helping to break the ice easier than simply sharing a meal. When your guests can share an experience, they will get to know each other on a different level, allowing them to build authentic relationships that foster a fantastic wedding day and a stronger community to help support your marriage.
- Cooking Class
A cooking class allows your guests to learn new skills while helping each other out! In Reno, there’s no better option than Nothing To It for an interactive and yummy rehearsal dinner for up to 40. One of their many great options is to have your friends and family make the delicious appetizers together under the direction of the talented staff and then have the staff finish things off by having them prepare the main course. No matter the needs of your group, Nothing To It allows you to customize the experience to meet the needs of your unique crowd.
