Planning your rehearsal dinner at one of our restaurants or with PRG Catering DC can be a great opportunity for the two families involved in your nuptials to get to know each other. Traditionally hosted by the groom’s family, the rehearsal dinner is a great opportunity to break the ice and spend some quality time with your guests. Come wedding night, the families of the bride and groom may be pulled in too many directions to put in any real quality time with any one guest.
Your guests will benefit from our staff’s experience catering DC private events smoothly and flawlessly – for everyone from A list celebrities to the President himself to local DC brides and grooms.
You can choose a formal or casual event, and we can create a small, intimate feeling or a large, grand rehearsal dinner. The possibilities are endless!
Tips for a Flawless DC Rehearsal Dinner
- Your rehearsal dinner should not overshadow what’s to come.
- If your wedding is the apex of the weekend, a catered DC rehearsal dinner can be an exclusive preview.
- Since the rehearsal dinner is more informal than the wedding reception, the food and atmosphere should reflect or complement that.
- You can even opt for PRG catering in DC at your cocktail party, buffet or BBQ – instead of a conventional sit-down rehearsal dinner.
- Use a catered rehearsal dinner as a “welcome party” for out-of-town guests.
PRG Catering’s Private Event menus are designed to accommodate a variety of budgets, party sizes, and party types. With flexibility and seating from 10 to 200 (for restaurant buyout), you can choose from our fresh, seasonal menus, plan an event with passed h’ors deouvres and/or buffet stations or design an informal cocktail party at our bar (note: we require pre-set menus for parties of 17 guests or more). We specialize in catering DC private events!
Couples today are more creative than ever in planning their DC wedding weekends, and many conventions are a thing of the past. You can use the term “dinner” loosely — cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a buffet, or even a barbecue are all perfectly acceptable catering options that we can help you execute perfectly.
We’ll help you turn the dinner into a fabulous welcome party. If your wedding is mostly local friends and family but a few key people traveled far to come to your wedding, extend the invitation to them as a thank you for their extra effort. If you’re throwing a destination wedding in DC or a party where at least half of the guests are from out of town, show your appreciation by inviting everyone to the night-before festivity. If your budget is limited, stick to a more exclusive group for the rehearsal dinner itself but follow it up with a large but informal welcome cocktail or dessert party for out-of-towners later in the evening. Our team at Teddy can help you turn all of this into a reality.
