My son is getting married in the fall and we’re in charge of the rehearsal dinner. We’re so excited for them and it’s just a really exciting time in all of our lives! If you know me, I have to be organized and for something this important, I don’t want to miss a step. The search for a rehearsal dinner planner was on!
So, I was really surprised to find out that there are not many rehearsal dinner planners online. I searched everywhere and could only find a few. You know what that means, right? I made my own! After loads of research and not finding one, I broke down and designed one.
I kept this rehearsal dinner planner very streamlined, but I feel like it covers everything you might need. From the basic details, the menu, the decor and so much more. If you’re planning a rehearsal dinner and looking for a rehearsal dinner checklist or planner then you need to look at this one.
Rehearsal Dinner Planner
Planning for the food is so important. Whether it’s at a restaurant, catered at a special venue, or a backyard barbecue, everyone will be looking forward to the meal. Plan out the menu with these pages. You can even do a mockup of a menu if you like.
You can also plan a timeline for the whole evening. Don’t forget to include when you want any speeches to happen or any other special moments.
I’ve included a guest list and if you need to make special notations about guests you can do that on the same line or the line beside their name if you need to.
Plan for all of your decor on these pages. Whether you are DIY’ing the decor, borrowing from church or friends, or renting from a venue, you can keep track of it all here.
You can’t plan without a checklist! I’ve created a 2-page rehearsal dinner checklist with plenty of blank lines to write in your own items.
Also included in this planner are a grocery list, a shopping list, and a to-do list. To preview all the pages you can go to my Etsy shop, TeraBareDesigns. Not to mention there’s a Details page to keep up with all your important information and a Budget page to make sure you don’t overspend.
I hope that this rehearsal dinner planner helps you to plan the most amazing celebration for your family. Let me know what you think and tell me about your rehearsal dinner and if I need to include anything else in this planner.
