Have anyone looked into renting a private house for a rehearsal dinner? We're planning a destination wedding in Sonoma and all guests will be from out of town. I'm wondering after renting tables, chairs, glasses, etc and a caterer if it's more economical to have it a restaurant.
I looked into having our rehearsal at our rental but most rentals in the area will not allow more than 20 people especially if you are having an event there. Most have a fee if you will like to have an event and if you plan to serve alcohol then it gets even trickier.
