We include one hour for you to rehearse, but we cannot guarantee this to be the night before. It will be scheduled based on availability of our other events. If we have another rental the day before yours, you are welcome to schedule your free hour on another day of the week, or many of our couples are choosing to rehearse off site. 30 days before your wedding, if we do not have a rental the day before, you are then welcome to schedule your rehearsal time slot. The best way to guarantee access the day before for the rehearsal and decorating is with the 2-day or full weekend rental.
