Party On!—Rehearsal Dinner at Divi All Inclusive
Weddings are a joyous time for celebrating, and not just on the the big day—half the fun is enjoying all the extra parties that surround this special time, from engagement parties and bridal showers to bachelor/bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. In our “Party On” Series, we collaborated with some of the island’s best wedding/event planners, florists, resorts, chefs, and bartenders to create six unique events to inspire couples looking for just the right combination of food, drinks, décor, and more!
Party Venue: Welcome/Rehearsal Dinner by Aruba Weddings for You
Kick off those shoes and put those toes in the sand—it’s the best way to let your guests know it’s time to relax and enjoy this special time on our island paradise! Traditionally, the rehearsal dinner is often an occasion to thank out-of-town guests for taking the extra time and expense to travel to your wedding. But of course when it’s a destination wedding, everyone travels. A casual welcome party on the beach sets just the right tone for greeting guests and mingling with one another. It’s also an ideal occasion to throw in a few authentic local touches.
