Where to Hold the Rehearsal Dinner
Check out these helpful tips for choosing a venue for your rehearsal dinner
Weddings are huge work, and once all the planning is almost complete, it's time to practice! So where to celebrate the (near) culmination of your months of effort?
When figuring out the logistics of a rehearsal dinner, a few factors come into play.
Firstly, how many people are you going to be inviting? In most situations, only some of the wedding attendees will be at the rehearsal dinner (although some may opt to have everyone there, that can get costly and the logistics can be a nightmare).
Make sure that the place you pick has enough room for the number of guests you are inviting. And in nearly all situations, it is best to make a reservation. Some restaurants will even let you rent out part or all of the restaurant for your dinner, so explore your options.
Secondly, how much do you want to spend? This will probably also factor into how many people you are inviting! There are plenty of really nice, upscale places on Cape Cod to hold a rehearsal dinner (and unless you have a fair amount of spare cash, you will want to keep your party smaller when considering these options).
However, this is a rehearsal dinner, not the wedding itself. If any time is the time to unwind, this is it. There are a lot of places that offer clambakes, as well as more affordable restaurants. If your wedding is in the off-season, bets are that these restaurants will be willing to work with you just to get some customers in.
Also, what are the tastes of your group? It is best to go with foods that everyone will enjoy (not too spicy or out there) unless you are having an intimate rehearsal dinner and know that everyone in the group is on-board.
