Bring families together
Formal rehearsal dinners are rare these days, and the welcome dinner is quickly becoming a more familiar sight. CW Ranch offers a wonderful location at the Ranch House for you to gather if you want to keep it easy and fun the night before the wedding.
The idea of hosting a second, more casual event for family and friends is appealing for a number of reasons. Most importantly, you can thank all the people who traveled to your (mini)destination wedding with a meal. If they're staying with you at the ranch, they should be at the dinner you provide the night before the big day.
It's also a wonderful opportunity for you to spend more time with loved ones - especially those you don't see very much or want more time with. If you invite 150 people to your wedding and the reception lasts six hours, you will spend an average of 2.5 minutes with each person. Make room in your schedule the evening before with a fun party.
CW takes care of setting up the basics for the party, so all you need to do is add food, beverages, and loved ones. It's the perfect recipe to make great memories.
