Rehearsal Dinners & Welcome Parties at The Wentworth Inn

Because our weddings are more than just a wedding reception, often the festivities will begin on Friday evening with a welcome reception.  A welcome reception is a great opportunity to welcome guests in a fun, informal environment.

As guests arrive they can join the reception, which generally last for two hours – your time frame but normally between 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. so your guests can have a nice quick, casual dinner after their drive up.

The bar for this event can be a cash bar or you can host it – it is entirely up to you.

After the dinner, your guests will continue their evening in our lounge listening to our pianist Rob Robbins.
