Which is which?  They both look pretty nice to me, and I’m assuming you’re not going to go all out and decorate the rehearsal dinner venue as you are the wedding venue, nor will everyone be as dressed up, nor will any of the important things be taking place at the rehearsal.  It’s no big deal, even if the rehearsal venue is ‘nicer’–and from those pics, I really can’t tell which is which.

My rehearsal will take place at my actual ceremony site. 

From what I can tell from the photos, I don’t think either one is “nicer” than the other.  🙂

If you think about it, it kinda makes sense.  The number of people at your rehearsal dinner is much fewer than at your wedding, why not splurge on a nice place?

I don’t think it will make your wedding venue look bad because I don’t think anyone will even think to compare.

I think they both look beautiful!  And honestly, your rehearsal dinner won’t seem nicer or more important than your wedding because, regardless of the venues, your wedding is obviously the FAR more important event, and your guests know it.  I’m sure your wedding day will be just lovely!

I think they both look beautiful, so IMO you don’t have anything to worry about. =)

Oh my gosh! I had this exact conversation with Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law last night!!! Our venue is an old mill with a tented wedding. Future Mother-In-Law wants to pay for our rehearsal at this very posh hotel. The menu was like the menu for a wedding!!! I had to ask her to see if they could tone down the food choices. I really wanted to have the rehearsal at a thai food restaurant, that’s a pretty big leap in between. Fiance doesn’t think it’s such a big deal, but I guess I just wanted something more casual, and food that pairs well with beer, LOL!

I love love love your wedding venue! It’s STUNNING!!! I prefer it over your rehearsal space 🙂

We had our rehearsal dinner at a gourmet restaurant and my wedding dinner was average catering. After eating that amazing dinner the night before, I felt downright sheepish about serving the catered food. But only a fraction of the guests were at the rehearsal and it was a totally different event. Not weird!
