    I’ve been in a few weddings where we did a quick rehersal without the bride about an hour before the ceremony and just had the dinner the night before. Is that possible?

    I think that sounds fine – as long as you have pictures of the actual location and can figure out and tell people where to stand with the pictures. You might also want to re-create the length of the aisle so that you can figure out timing. Can you hold the rehearsal on a different day or at a different time at the actual location?

    I think either of your venue options sound great, so it’s really up to you and deciding which one you like better.

    My only concern from what you wrote is that you may want to discuss personalized vows and a winebox ceremony with your officiant far in advance of the rehearsal dinner. Won’t it be upsetting to find out he wont allow that if it’s the night before? You’ll want to know that far in advance, so you can make adjustments to your ceremony or even look for another officiant who will let you have the ceremony you want.

    I’m confused by your post. The dinner is never held at the ceremony venue and is typically at a restaurant. The rehearsal itself is at the ceremony venue.
