Casual Rehearsal Dinner

If you're looking to host an intimate and casual rehearsal dinner, choose a relaxed setting (like a family member's home) and go for a neutral color palette. Here's a bit of inspiration for a small gathering in a pretty pale blue, grey and white palette:

A simple invitation, like this pale blue, tan and white design by Prentiss Douthit, is perfect for an event with casual style.

Set the table with blue or tan linens and neutral floral arrangements for a relaxed look.

Imprinted "sweetheart forks" make great accent pieces, and a nice keepsake for the bride and groom.

Hang simple and sweet pennant flags in the party space for added flair.

Instead of a formal sit-down dinner, opt for light fare like artisinal cheeses, fresh bread, fruits and crisp wine or champagne.
