F a l l | W i n t e r B R I D E 1 1 DEAR REHEARSAL DINNER DEBATE, It is certainly a polite tradition to invite all out-of-town guests to your rehearsal dinner. However, the only people you are required to invite are your immediate family, your wedding party and their signifcant others, the parents of the fower girls/ring bearers and the ofciant and their signifcant other. If you are looking for a way to include out- of-town guests without inviting them to the dinner, I would suggest having a welcome cocktail reception at a local bar or in a hospitality suite at the hotel they are staying at. That way everyone can mix and mingle and feel included. This is often best to have after the rehearsal dinner so that you can join. Also, make sure to post suggestions for nearby dinner options on your website and/ or welcome bags. DEAR MAGGIE, My fancé and I are both vegetarians. My parents are paying for the wedding and they don't think that we should have a vegetarian-only menu for the wedding. We feel like it's against our beliefs to have meat at our wedding. What should we do? Sincerely, Veggie Couple DEAR VEGGIE COUPLE, That's a tough one! If you were paying for the wedding, I would suggest having exactly the kind of food you want and like. However, if your parents are paying, they certainly should have a choice in the matter. Could you compromise with doing only one meat option for dinner but keep the rest of the dinner and all appetizers vegetarian? Also, make sure that the caterer knows that you two are vegetarians so that they don't put meat on your plates. Most caterers can help you get creative with the menu and make sure your guests never miss the meat. Ultimately, it is your wedding. It may be worth it to ofer to pay for the catering if it is that important to you. I think it would be very authentic to have a vegetarian menu since you are both vegetarians and have certainly seen it at weddings before! Don't feel like you have to please everyone. And make sure the wedding is a refection of you. coutureclosetboutique.com crystalweddinggown.com 4111 Oechsli Ave | Louisville, KY 40207 | 502.742.9795 | crystalweddinggown.com CRYSTAL WEDDING GOWN Experience your dream
