Unique rehearsal dinner ideas include a backyard BBQ, a bowling party, a game night and a cocktail party. These ideas encourage guests to mingle more than a traditional sit-down meal.
A BBQ is a casual option that is often less expensive than a rehearsal dinner at a restaurant. Heading to a bowling alley means guests stay entertained while munching on appetizers from the bowling alley's menu. Game night options range from traditional board or video games to a casino night. A similar option is to meet the guests at a go-cart track, miniature golf course or laser tag arena. Cocktail parties allow guests to mingle and graze on appetizers.
