"Love is the greatest refreshment in life."    Pablo Picasso


The dinner following the wedding rehearsal is not a necessity, but it is the prelude to your wedding day festivities. It provides an opportunity for your attendants, and families to relax and get acquainted, and it serves as a start of your wedding celebrations.

The rehearsal dinner is the traditional time for the grooms father to make a formal toast to the couple. It is also an appropriate time to give your attendants their gifts of appreciation, for being part of your wedding party.

In days of old, a piece of toasted bread was placed in the bottom of the wine goblet, which was then passed to every guest. The last to receive it was the honoured lady. She ate the wine soaked toast and received everyones compliments. The custom of sharing a drink then became known as the toast. The traditional toast to newlyweds is Health, Wealth and Happiness.
