The planning has finally paid off and now you’re getting ready to start your wedding weekend with a fabulous rehearsal or welcome dinner. From rustic Wyoming retreats to classy downtown Park City whiskey bars, we’ve found our nine favorite rehearsal dinners throughout the Rockies to serve as inspiration for your own Rocky Mountain rehearsal dinner.

1. Treavor + Alexandra 

Treavor and Alexandra worked with Gemini Event Planning in Vail for their wedding weekend. They celebrated their rehearsal dinner with closest friends and family at La Nonna Vail amongst a snowy winter wonderland backdrop.  Alexandra stunned in a custom Enaura Bridal bodysuit from Little White Dress Bridal Shop while Treavor wore a custom suit from Trumaker. Their winter rehearsal dinner in one of the most magical parts of Colorado has us swooning!

2. Aaron + Karri 

Aaron and Karri embraced the rugged Colorado scenery at their Devil’s Thumb Ranch rehearsal dinner. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they enjoyed cold beers and good food to celebrate the start of their wedding weekend. We love the classy, rustic vibe that Ivory and Vine Event Co. planned for Aaron and Karri’s rehearsal dinner.

3. Matthew + Karli 

Karli, owner of Ivory and Vine Event Co., created the perfect desert rehearsal dinner for her wedding to Matthew. They dined under the stars at one of the Collective Retreats locations and lounged under canvas tents for a laid-back rehearsal dinner space. Our favorite part of their dinner is the tablescape, with wooden cross-back chairs and a table long enough to accommodate their friends and family.

4. Varun + Alexa 

Varun and Alexa took a more traditional rehearsal dinner route with their downtown Denver dinner at Coohills. The modern restaurant atmosphere and delectable eats make Coohills a romantic setting for a classy rehearsal dinner. For a moment of peace before the wedding festivities get underway, plan a time of portraits with your soon-to-be spouse to celebrate your love just the two of you.

5. Jackson + Megan 

Your rehearsal dinner is supposed to be fun, and that’s exactly what Jackson and Megan embodied for for their Park City rehearsal dinner. They incorporated fun western elements into their dinner at High West Distillery & Saloon. In our opinion, the more fun elements for you and your guests to enjoy, the better!
