The Brilliance of the Rehearsal Brunch

The Brilliance of the Rehearsal Brunch

Brunch: is there any weekend ritual more revered here in the South? From leisurely get-together, to the elegant champagne soiree, Charlestonians make the most of this mid-morning meal. And if you’re planning a destination wedding in Charleston, it’s a tradition worth sharing with your out-of-town guests.

In wedding etiquette, the ceremony rehearsal is typically followed by a dinner for the wedding party and immediate family. However, many venues in Charleston require morning rehearsals on weekend dates, leaving a lot of time to fill between events.

Why wait until the evening to celebrate? With a flexible window from late morning to early afternoon, a rehearsal brunch or luncheon is a perfect fit for your guests and a great alternative to competing with the rest of Charleston’s dinner crowd for restaurant space!
