When it comes to a rehearsal dinner, there are many details to be accounted for, including rehearsal dinner favors. Here at Beau-coup, we feel it is important to provide those favors in order to show your appreciation toward the people who are not only participating in the wedding itself but participating in the events leading up to it.
When it comes to choosing a favor for your rehearsal dinner, we have a few suggestions. Since the dinner is probably taking place the night before your wedding, we recommend keeping it simple with the favors, especially since you'll be handing out favors on the day of the wedding. Some ideas that we think work nicely, and are already a part of the dinner itself, include personalized drinkware like shot glasses or wine glasses, personalized coasters, or personalized bottle openers.
You may also opt for treats that are easy to grab and enjoy on-the-go. Such as personalized mint tins, custom cookies, bags of personalized Carmel corn, or personalized chocolate bars. These rehearsal dinner favors can be enjoyed by everyone in attendance and make a yummy thank you.
The rehearsal dinner though is also a good opportunity to gift the bridal party with something extra special to thank them for all of their love and support. This might include a full bottle of wine with a personalized label. Or even jewelry or cufflinks that can be worn on the wedding day. Consider gifting items such as these as well as handing out small rehearsal dinner favors. That way you can ensure you thank everyone involved in the rehearsal dinner including bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, parents, and more.
If you happen to have a theme or aesthetic for your wedding, you can also take that into account when deciding on rehearsal dinner favors. Perhaps you're having a beach wedding. In that case, consider passing out favors that resemble the beach, such as starfish bottle openers, seashell gel tea light holders, or anything adorned with our 'You, Me and the Sea' design. If you're hosting a rehearsal dinner that includes bar drinks and eats, consider favors such as a personalized beer can glass, or personalized can sleeves that are perfect for wrapping around a cold bottle of beer.
No matter what favor you decide on for the rehearsal dinner, make sure that it's thoughtful and fitting to your personality. Your attendees are sure to appreciate the thought and will enjoy looking back on and using the favors you provided on this most special occasion.
