Groom Speech Rehearsal Dinner

If you are having a rehearsal dinner considers it as your Groom Speech Rehearsal Dinner as well. I mean it’s an excellent opportunity to test your groom speech. Though groom speech you are going to give at the rehearsal dinner is less formal and quite different from the one you intend to give at your wedding reception, but this is your chance to get familiar with wedding speeches. Your speech at the rehearsal dinner should be like a dress rehearsal of the original groom speech. If you are wondering after all what are you going to speak in your rehearsal dinner groom speech, it’s pretty much similar to your groom speech – welcome the guests, especially those out-of-town friends and relatives, show your gratitude towards your parents, thank the bride and her parents, introduce the wedding party to the attendees and that’s it . . . don’t make it long.

Here's a nice write up on Groom Speech Rehearsal Dinner

A rehearsal dinner is a pre-wedding ceremony in North American tradition, usually held after the wedding rehearsal and the night before the wedding ceremony.

The guests generally include the couple to be married and others who form the wedding party, but may also include extended family and out-of-town guests. The rehearsal dinner costs are traditionally incurred by the parents of the groom. However, modern traditions allow for either side or for the bride and groom to incur these costs.

The purpose of the rehearsal dinner is for the relatives and friends of the bride and groom to meet and have a good time. The couple generally takes this opportunity to thank everyone who has put work into helping them with the wedding preparations. Activities generally include toasting (or roasting) and the presentation of small gifts for those who have helped plan the wedding.
