Rehearsal Dinners

Rehearsal Dinners With or Without Lodging

From formal dinners in our newly remodeled Rose Garden Dining Room, to horse drawn wagon rides to a cookout, to casual buffets, and even take out to your group lodge.  What is your budget and vision for your rehearsal dinners?  Call our event coordinator today and let us help you plan just what you are looking for right here at Forrest Hills Resort.

With so many options here we recommend scheduling a tour with our event coordinator.   They’ll help you wade through all of our information so you don’t get overwhelmed.  Keep in mind that when you have your wedding here at Forrest Hills Resort we will not use the same room for your wedding reception and rehearsal dinner.  Additionally, while we know the decision is yours to make, we recommend inviting all out of town guests that are staying here to your rehearsal dinner to avoid hurt feelings and confusion.

Rehearsal Dinners With Group Lodging

Most of our options do not require overnight group lodging.  These two options do however, making your wedding weekend even more fun.

  • NEW!!  Pair our 16 room Treetopper Lodge with our Southern Ballroom for a rustic wedding retreat.
  • Rent our all-suite, 12 room hotel called the Mountain Laurel Inn.  This Inn features private outdoor hot tub, fire pit, hospitality suite and banquet venue (Blossom’s)!  We often use this building for our Destination Wedding Package.  For brides using our Rose Garden Dining Room for their reception or for those of you getting married off site this is a great option.
