You’ve got your venue booked, gown is being altered, photographer is paid and your florist is set. Time to start thinking about the rehearsal dinner.
For traditional dos and don’ts, The Knot provides a great resource here. Once you’ve got those down, here is the ultimate guide for where to have your rehearsal dinner if you’re getting married at Heather’s Glen.
Since the rehearsal itself will be here, it’s paramount that your rehearsal dinner is close in proximity to the venue. The last thing you want for your wedding party and family is for them to have to travel halfway across town. The rehearsal is usually the first time the entire wedding party and family is together, so it can be an exciting time for people to celebrate and catch up before the formal event.
FOR A MEXICAN FIESTA
Both Mexican food and tex-mex are great options for rehearsal dinners if you’re looking for a fun and casual party. Margaritas, chips and queso, papel picado, and mariachis provide the perfect setting for a celebratory fiesta. Here are some locations I recommend in the area:
FOR AN ITALIAN FETE
Nine years ago we had our rehearsal dinner at Joe’s Pizza & Pasta in Conroe, and the memories are priceless. After dinner they brought out a slice of tiramisu with a little espresso and chocolate heart on it. There’s something about the combination of red checkered tablecloths, red wine, and That’s Amore playing that is just iconically romantic. Here are some locations I recommend in the area:
FOR TEXAS BBQ
If you have out-of-state family coming in, this is a huge hit. They want to know what all of the fuss is about. Y’all know what I’m talkin’ ’bout.
FOR A GREAT STEAK
If any of the above seem too casual, and you’d prefer a steakhouse atmosphere, and possibly a cigar room, check out some of these favorites below.
