Our theme is “I love you, so eat, enjoy the gift I’m giving you and give me a margarita!”

Theme for a rehearsal dinner?  That’s a new one for me too! 

Um. Since it’ll be at a sports bar/pizza place, they probably already have stuff on the table. Right? But since I guess you need to do a theme, why don’t you do a sports theme?  Do you and your SO have a favorite team?  Maybe you can do your favorite team’s colors and as an inexpensive centerpiece, do shakers in a vase down the tables.  I would really keep the theme going with the venue.  I just think sports bar are usually so decorated in sports stuff that anything outside of a sports theme would just look odd.

I don’t think that you need a theme or decorations.  If you are going to a resturaunt the tables will already have things on them, won’t they?  Don’t stress over it, just enjoy and relax.

I have never heard of having a theme for the rehearsal dinner, it just seems way unnecessary. Restaurants are decorated enough, don’t even think of stressing yourself our over decorations or centerpieces!

@jneden:We didn’t have a theme at all. My Mother-In-Law wanted us to do a theme too but I put her in her place and said NO. We just had pizza and beer, and enjoyed ourselves, was nothing formal and was great!

People kept asking me about a theme as well.  I am pretty sure there would have been no theme but i got tired of the question.  So since my future in laws are bbqing for the rehearsal dinner i just said it was bbq themed.  Is that a thing??  I have no idea. . . but people just smile and agree when I say it haha

I dont think you really need a theme.  Just do whatever you want =)

@jneden: Tell them each table has a functional centerpiece consisting of ketchup, salt and pepper :). I felt the same way about planning the rehearsal dinner, so I made Fiance do most of the work for that one. One person can only do so much!
