Rehearsal Dinners | Why Are They Important And Why You May Need A Photographer

Rehearsal Dinner :

// - A rehearsal dinner is a pre-wedding ceremony in North American tradition, usually held after the wedding rehearsal and the night before the wedding ceremony. The guests generally include the married-to-be couple and others who form the wedding party. [Internet Source~] From a photographers perspective, it is important these are covered and we do offer the service - Depending on the situation/agreement we would cover the wedding rehearsal - Most of the times is a great way to get to have a meet and greet with the wedding party before the day.

Sometimes this dinner rehearsal service is booked with your wedding photography - We will come and caoture the dinner coverage for a fee - it is a great time to capture the moments leading to the big day in a little more intimate atmosphere - These rehearsal dinners are mostly held as a thank you for those who are closest to the couple - Couples are so thankful to their families and closest friends who from the bridal and groom party for being in your lives and also for making the time by participating in the wedding. These moments are also a special time for families on both, groom and bride's sides to bond and get to know each other before the BIG day. Remember that sometimes and most time the actual wedding day and its night, gets hectic - and many of these special guests may not have the opportunity to socialize in a very close way.... Even if your wedding was small (50 or less guests), it is still a good idea - many of my couples plan on a rehearsal dinner and they are really glad they had that time together.

All the details we planned by the groom's parents - The napkins were hand made by his mother, the bridal party enjoyed dinner by Beaufort Grocery [ Who had their food truck on-site ] - it was beautifully put together, making it a very special time for the couple who had a beautiful wedding At The Watson House located in Emerald Isle, NC the following day.
