The rehearsal dinner is an optional wedding event. The two main questions to consider are, “How lavish a dinner do you want?” and “Who is invited?”
In the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, you have unlimited options that include facilities and venues for elaborate, formal events, or something as simple as an intimate dinner for a few family members and friends. Sumptuous menus, fine wines and breathtaking views are all available to enhance your perfect evening of relaxation before the big day.
If you are looking for a lively, fun-filled evening, you might consider hosting the rehearsal dinner at a local dinner theatre that includes live entertainment during or following a delicious meal. Many venues offer special packages for just such an occasion.
So whether you are planning for a large group or intimate gathering, elegant dinner or lively entertainment, the Tennessee Smoky Mountain Area has just what you are looking for.
