Wedding Party Ideas  Back to Events

As much as the wedding is about the bride and groom, it's also a special time for the families, bridal attendants and everyone involved in the planning. 

One of the most enjoyable aspects of a wedding "aside from the actual event, of course" is the wedding rehearsal dinner. Learn tips for making it relaxing and fun. 

And remember food during the mad rush of the big day, when it's easy to forget to eat before the wedding. Make feeding the bridal party an integral part of wedding-day prep to keep energy levels up. Your neighborhood Publix has everything you need to keep everyone well-fed throughout the wedding festivities.

The Perfect Gift Made Easy

Use our new to help you pick the perfect gift card online and put it on your grocery list. Then you can breeze through the aisles and buy just the card you wanted in our store.

  • Keep the bride's tastes and preferences at the forefront of party planning. Allow her to supply or approve the guest list and ask her how involved she wants to be.
  • Preview the big day for guests by using wedding colors as inspiration for shower decorations. That way items such as the guestbook pen, tablecloths, ribbon and tulle can be reused.
