Rehearsal dinners are an important aspect when planning your wedding ceremony and reception in Maine. It is the setting and the kick off event in which families come together, sometimes for the first time. Rehearsal dinners set the tempo for the entire wedding event, so of course the dinner must be perfect.
In Maine, you can find anything from hotels and resorts with banquet halls or restaurants accommodating wedding parties, even lobster feasts or clam bakes for the rehearsal dinner at a beach club or on the beach. Consider chartering a boat for a floating rehearsal party.
How memorable for your friends, family and guests to have a unique Maine setting, on the beach, overlooking the sea, or at a secluded lakeside resort to start your wedding festivities off right.
