City-by-City Guide: Chic Georgia Rehearsal Dinner Sites

6 rehearsal dinner sites guaranteed to wow your crowd.

1. Vineyard Style

Wine lovers? Then gather your guests for a dinner surrounded by oak barrels and vintage wine bottles. At Château Élan Winery & Resort in Braselton you can host a wine-paired dinner for up to 70 guests in the cool recesses of the Cask Room. (800) 233-9463

2. Barbecue Bash

For something truly unique, Lisa Chappelear Milko of Event Perfect suggests The Trolley Barn , a venue that lends itself to a Southern barbecue (a bluegrass band is optional!). Here, you can bring in your own caterers and other vendors to create a completely customized rehearsal dinner. (404) 521-2308

3. Garden Party

Rehearsal dinners are in full bloom at The Gaslight Inn . This gorgeous bed and breakfast in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood exudes romance and Southern charm, according to Nicky Graham of Sugar Sweet Events . Host your party on the patio of the inn’s charming walled courtyard. (404) 875-1001

4. Tapas Style

Sharing small plates is a great way to get the group mixing and mingling. Loca Luna , a favorite of local wedding planners, can accommodate groups of 20 or more. The menu: Spanish tapas (of course), beer, wine, and delicious margaritas. (404) 875-4494

5. Theme Party

If fun is what you’re after, Dante’s Down the Hatch houses what looks like an eighteenth-century sailing ship surrounded by an actual moat with live crocs. Michele Grant of Infuse Events led us to this kitschy spot that can accommodate private parties of up to 400 guests. The menu: fondue. (404) 266-1600

6. Country Time

For a setting worthy of a country-chic rehearsal dinner, head to Zion Farms in Rome. This equestrian center can accommodate small dinner parties in its rustic yet elegant Tavern Room, which is appointed with an imported Italian alabaster horse head chandelier. The menu: Southern tradition with a European flair. (706) 235-8002
