Wedding venues are usually booked by brides and grooms at least 1 year prior to the actual wedding date. It is the first vendor that is sought after since having the perfect place to say “I Do” is sometimes the most important. Not to say other vendors aren’t important, there is just usually some wiggle room with timing to book those folks. When a couple gets engaged the wedding becomes the focus for all those that are close to the soon-to-be bride and groom. But the wedding is not the only celebration to plan! Brides (and sometimes couples) have showers, brunches and let’s not forget the most important of the celebrations – Rehearsal Dinner Parties!!
Finding a great spot to congregate with your closest guests should be almost as important as the venue where you say “I Do”. Not only do you want a space to enjoy some great food, but a place to enjoy merriment and fellowship with your guests as well. And it MUST be a place that reflects to your guests the type of couple that you are. Kicking off a wedding weekend the right way ensures that you and all of your guests will have a blast celebrating your nuptials all weekend long.
The venue we provide at Rural Hill has a caterer’s kitchen that your caterer will love – so bring in your favorite one! We’ve also got a great sound system in our main hall that is perfect for guests giving toasts and music throughout the evening. A large drop-down projection screen is ideal for playing those wonderfully embarrassing slide shows of the bride and groom from birth to wedding date. And if you want the party to continue after the meal in done, stay awhile with your open bar to mix and mingle… maybe even have us create a bonfire outdoors for marshmallow roasting!
Renting a venue for a rehearsal dinner is becoming more and more popular. This way you are not forced into choosing a space you love and having to commit to a menu that you don’t love. You choose the venue and bring in the food you love and can afford. Best of both worlds. Period.
And of course let’s not forget that if you do need a place to host a bridal or couple’s shower, or that perfect brunch to celebrate the happy couple – we’ve got the space for you and your crew!
