Professional Photo By: Wes Atkinson Photography

The opportunity to rehearse the different steps of your wedding ceremony is an important one. Because the wedding rehearsal tends to happen the evening before the wedding itself, all of your wedding party – including the ones who are traveling to attend – should be present. It would be a mistake to overlook the importance of this event, as it can make the day itself less stressful while also preventing potential delays. In addition to practicing at our venue, Texas Old Town also welcomes couples who want to have their rehearsal dinner with us! This can make the dinner more convenient, and offer you extra time to make sure everyone is ready for the day itself. (more…)
