Rehearsal Dinner Venues Meridian, Mississippi

As you probably know, there are not a lot of options available to brides and grooms in Meridian, Mississippi, when it comes to a restaurant for their rehearsal dinner.  A lot of couples are choosing to host their dinners at local venues instead; especially when they have a larger guest list than a restaurant can accommodate.  

Last week I shared with you wedding venues in Meridian, MS, (read post here!) and today I want to share some venues and restaurants that are available for hosting rehearsal dinners. 

If you are wanting to host your rehearsal dinner at a Meridian, MS restaurant, there are just a few that can even accommodate a large party in a private setting.
