BBQ Rehearsal Dinner Inspiration

Cookouts are the best part of summer (especially on the 4th!). So why not bring that laid-back vibe, great food and good company to your rehearsal dinner? Here’s how to do it.

The Decor

You don't have to go super casual for a bbq rehearsal dinner. Set your tables with white and pastel checkered linens to dress up the vibe. Add some fresh flowers and candles in mason jars for a homey touch.

The Signature Cocktail

This specialty summer cocktail is chock-full of strawberries, lemonade and a hint of vodka. It's just the right mix of sweet and sour and will leave your guests feeling refreshed.

The Entertainment

No cookout is complete without lawn games. Provide activities like bocce ball, croquet, bean toss and horseshoe. As a keepsake, let each winner of a round of horseshoes keep their horseshoe.
