BBQ Rehearsal Dinner

Although BBQ season is a few months away, I could not resist this idea of having a BBQ Rehearsal Dinner. With the summer months still being very popular time of the year to get married, a BBQ is a perfect way to get family and friends together for a relaxed meal after the wedding rehearsal.

The menu included firecracker barbecue country-style ribs, French fries, old-fashioned summer potato salad, hamburgers, and grilled Utah sweet corn on the cob.

Bottles of Jones Soda ( in the couple’s wedding colors.

The groom designed and printed the red-and-blue menu cards. The casual typefaces and design perfectly fit the laid-back rehearsal dinner vibe.

Potted red geraniums served as dinner table centerpieces. The couple sent the blooms home with family at the end of the evening.

The favors were super-personal: the bride and groom filled vintage-style tins with their families’ favorite recipes. They ordered the tins online, added big, red, vinyl letters to the front of each, and printed the recipe cards themselves.

  1. Pleased to know about this BBQ rehearsal dinner. I am planning to arrange my sister-in-law’s wedding reception dinner and looking for elegant New York wedding venues. Hope to find an outdoor venue. Planning to arrange a grand dinner for all my guests.
