Getting engaged is exciting! A ring gets slid onto your finger, and all of a sudden a plethora of events are on the horizon, including the rehearsal dinner. Whether you choose to make it an upscale event or a casual affair, a family style meal can set the tone for your big day. Imagine guests lingering over passed dishes and enjoying refreshing drinks as you will see with these Mediterranean inspired rehearsal dinner ideas.
Mediterranean Rehearsal Dinner Ideas
Looking for rehearsal dinner ideas? Why not take a hint from this year’s Pantone Color of the Year – Living Coral? Take a few hints from our rehearsal dinner featuring the “Mediterranean meets Southern Hospitality” style of Tahini’s in downtown Lynchburg. Take a peek at the different elements in our rehearsal dinner below.
Vintage Ironstone serving pieces, beeswax candles, lovely florals, and calligraphy elements are all beautifully arranged to create an intimate setting. Clear, patterned glasses also add interest without appearing too heavy. Of course, the chairs and flowers bring in the Living Coral color against our otherwise neutral backdrop.
I love this idea! As a budget-friendly rehearsal dinner option, utilizing take-out food and transferring it onto platters so that it can be passed family style adds an intimate element while creating an upscale feel. It will also cause people to linger and remain at the table instead of heading through a buffet. Such a great idea for a rehearsal dinner!
