Rehearsal Dinners

It's Time to Plan a Rehearsal Dinner!

  • Rarely does this happen but I love when I have booked a wedding, with the bride and her family and the grooms parents come to me and want to book the rehearsal dinner with us too.  Some people would think that setting up the rehearsal dinner at the same place that the wedding is going to be held would be a little redundant, but I can tell you first off that is far from the truth.  The Hereford House at Terradyne Country Club is a massive castle like building; we are extremely fortunate to have more then one banquet facilitiy here.  The number ONE reason why I love my job is becuase not ONE event is the same.  I strive to make each any everyone's event special and unique to match not only their personalities, but what they want to show their guests in this unique experience.
    • Rehearsal Dinners are very special to me.  It is time for the grooms parents to shine.  It is their one event throughout the whole wedding process to plan and execute.  Most common I see plated dinners for our rehearsal dinners here at the Hereford House.  I do see on rare occasion a buffet or if you want a more fun relaxed dinner before the big day I suggest renting out our bar area and setting it up with heavy appetizers. I have also seen a growing trend on outside rehearsal dinners on our beautiful patio that over looks the golf course.  In my eyes, if this crazy Wichita weather coorperates the patio is ideal and dreamy.  Please ask Morgan Bauer the event specialist about pricing of the bar and patio. 
      • If you choose to do a plated dinner you can have up to 3 options.  These options don't have to be pre-selected before the guests arrive for the evening.  When your guests arrive we will have the 3 options (steak, chicken and fish) on a beautiful menu and your guests can choose that evening. I highly reccommend to the parents when creating the event that after the rehearsal at the venue or church, you have 3 appetizers at mimumum for the guests to munch on while gathering for the rehearsal dinner.  You ask WHY?  Because most of these guests have never met each other, you are combining two new family, and friends, you wouldn't want to go straight into a sit down dinner without an icebreaker.   
    • We have three beautiful dinner buffet options all three options come with an interactive beef carving station.  This is a really cool show because my executive chef will be at the buffet carving our beautiful Sterling Silver beef, the guest can choose their temperature and size cut of their dinner.  Our buffets also come with coffee, tea, water, a salad, bread and butter a white meat (chicken or turkey) a starch, chef choice seasonal vegetable and dessert! 
      • If you wanted the more relaxed approach we can set-up a heavy appetizer buffet in our state of the art bar surrounded by beautiful western paintings, three 60 inch tv's and high-top tables!!

Happy Wedding Planning Morgan Bauer
