Where should I have my rehearsal dinner?
When looking at rehearsal dinner venues, consider the tone and atmosphere you want. Are you looking for something formal and elegant? Or would you prefer something a bit more casual and laid back? If you are looking for an event with specific entertainment and activities, then be sure there is plenty of event space to accommodate your guests while seated and up and about.
Wedding planning may be for several hundred, but the typical rehearsal dinner guest list can be as low as a dozen to around 50 guests. If you are hoping to kick up your boots and dance the night away, then space for live music and a dance floor is something you’ll want to consider in addition to seating, catering and bar service.
If you’re planning a Texas hill country rehearsal dinner then an outdoor venue is the perfect way to experience the natural beauty of the area as if you were in a state park but with the modern amenities of an updated special event venue. Because when looking at event venues in San Antonio it is also important to consider weather conditions. Having an emergency plan in case of rain makes having a backup indoor venue a must.
When asking about inclement weather plans, be sure to also get some answers from your venue event planner to these very important questions:
-Does this space accommodate everyone on your wedding rehearsal guest list?
-Does the venue have audio visual capabilities for slideshows or speeches?
-If the wedding planner leaves after the ceremony rehearsal, does the venue provide a coordinator for the rehearsal dinner festivities?
-When can I set up personal decorations? When do they have to be removed?
-Can I serve alcohol? What beverage service options are available?
