Love this tip from Martha Stewart Weddings:
Traditionally, rehearsal dinners were thrown the night before the ceremony after the bride, groom, and their wedding party had walked through the paces of the next day. But today those customs have expanded. "Many people choose to start off the festivities with a get-together that includes everyone," says Martha Stewart Weddings editorial director Darcy Miller.
Whether you choose to go big (dinner!), small (cocktails and light bites), casual (no shoes!), or fancy (killer shoes), just make it your own.
