We're so excited to have the team from Azuridge on the blog today, giving us three great ideas for rehearsal dinners!

The rehearsal dinner is a wonderful tradition that takes place before your wedding and can take on a life of its own when it comes to the details. But who do you invite? What type of food should be served at the rehearsal dinner? Here are 3 fun ideas for your rehearsal dinner with advice on who to include:

  • Burgers and Beer at the Azuridge Gazebo - These gourmet burgers will have your guests' mouths watering. Wash it down with a chilled beer and take in the view of the foothills from the Gazebo at Azuridge Estate Hotel. This is a great setting for a mid-size party inviting immediate family, your bridal party and their significant others. After the dinner is done you can always invite your other guests to join in for after dinner cocktails and smores.
  • Western BBQ on the Azuridge Grounds - When you have out of town guests it's a great opportunity to share our Western spirit. Treat this rehearsal dinner more like a welcome party and include line-dancing and lawn games. Invite all your guests and it serves as the kick-off point for your wedding weekend. It's a great opportunity for guests to mingle and get to know each other before your big day.
  • Chef's Table Experience in Azuridge's Appatite Kitchen - For a more intimate affair with your bridal party enjoy the Chef's Table at Azuridge. Host 12 at our table made of South African Bubinga Wood and enjoy this culinary show. Treat your besties to a Canadiana themed 5- course meal and wine pairings.

You can also use your rehearsal dinner for speeches. There's not always enough time at a wedding for all the people that would like to share their sentiments with you. Incorporate these speeches into your rehearsal dinner to make the evening extra special. You may even want to create a signature cocktail with the Azuridge Sommelier just for these special toasts.

Regardless the size or style of your rehearsal dinner, Azuridge is ready to plan a beautiful occasion with you.
