Rehearsal Dinner Venues
So one thing that took a surprisingly long time to nail down was a venue for our rehearsal dinner. My future mother in law has the reigns on the details of planning the rehearsal, but we have all been working together for months to find a good location. We had a few “musts” on our list.
1. Vegetarian choices: We needed an option that would provide a delicious meal for all of our guests. Several places can offer a great meat option, but only provide salad and steamed vegetables for the non–meat eaters. This has happened to me too many times at weddings, and especially at rehearsal dinners, so I knew we did not want to subject our own guests to this.
2. Small-ish space: While we could have easily gotten a hotel conference room or something, I really wanted a space that would be small and distinctive. It didn’t have to match the feel of the wedding exactly, but I didn’t want a space that would be too big for our relatively small guest list.
