My venue wants to charge me $400 for the rehearsal, which does NOT include dinner or anything after, strictly to rehearse. My question to you ladies… Am I crazy for thinking this is ridiculous? Can I get away with having a mock rehearsal at a different location?

That seems like a lot for no dinner.

That is insane! Ours is $75 and that is only if it is after 4:30pm.

Completely ridiculous. Ours is free the night before and they even give us enough time to set up all our decorations.

I don’t know what could possibly cost $400 if dinner is not included. I would not pay that much.

$400 is a lot for a rehearsal time, but that’s probably not how they are looking at it. To them it’s another night when they could potentially have a wedding. And I don’t think $400 it’s ridiculous at all, if you think about it that way. They may have a better price if you do it earlier in the morning or afternoon. Otherwise, I think it’s fine to do a mock up at a different location, just make sure you can lay things out the same way they will be at your site. Think about sightlines at your site. But I think you could do it.

Wow! Definitely do it elsewhere!
