Reasons to hold a welcome dinner. Discover all the details! 🍴🍷
One of the trends in the wedding industry that has positioned itself in recent years is the celebration of dinner the day before the wedding. Especially if it’s a destination wedding the one taking place. Many couples decide to do this event to spend a more intimate moment with their family and friends, in this blog we will tell you everything you need to know about how to organize a pre-wedding dinner, also known as a welcome dinner.
When it comes to organizing this dinner, it’s recommended that you do it with a different theme and style than your wedding. You will be able to let your creativity fly and include fun elements to spend a pleasant moment with your guests. It will also be a way to welcome and thank everyone for assisting to your wedding.
As it’s more of a private event, invite a maximum of 50 or 60 persons so that you don’t go over budget.
We suggest this dinner to be a little informal, since the biggest focus should be your wedding day, but remember! Although it’s not a gala event, don’t forget to look beautiful, you can wear a cocktail dress or even a jumpsuit that highlights your figure.
If you have problems organizing this event alongside your wedding, you can hire the services of a wedding planner. She is the one with all the expertise to help you plan everything, even a before or after-party for your wedding! Undoubtedly, she will help you celebrate incredible moments.

Ideas for a spectacular night
The dinner doesn’t have to be boring, so include some music to liven up the atmosphere. If you wish you can also hire some dancers or an entertainer show to get your guests ready for the wedding.
Don’t stress too much, this moment is for you to relax and have a good time. After all the efforts put into planning, it’s time to enjoy and talk with each one of the guests.
We already talked a little about the guests and the type of celebration, but none of this would be possible if we didn’t first choose first the place for dinner. Although it’s recommendable to do the event in the evening, you can also have a meal at midday in a restaurant or in a garden, although it will all depend on the season and your personal preferences.
If you don’t want to organize something so complex, you can also organize a night out to a bar to make a much more intimate celebration or use your own home to organize a meal.
The important thing is for you to enjoy an incredible day! How about these ideas? Would you dare to celebrate a welcome dinner?
