Wedding Rehearsal Dinners

Your wedding rehearsal dinner is one of the few opportunities to bring your family and friends together before your wedding day, so make it special by hosting this intimate event at Germantown Cricket Club. Unlike other Philadelphia rehearsal dinner venues, our classically constructed club house and walled 14 acre grounds are the perfect setting to spend time with the people you love before your special day. With classic, old-world charm, our facility offers private dining rooms, public spaces and outdoor locations to bring your bridal party together for a lovely wedding rehearsal dinner that will act as a great precursor for events to come.

Rehearsal Dinner Ideas

Like our surrounding Philadelphia neighborhoods, there is a diversity of opinion on what makes a perfect wedding rehearsal dinner. Frequently it depends on both your personal style and the ability to make your dinner guests comfortable, but it’s not limited to a traditional sit down meal. At Germantown Cricket Club we’ve encountered some great, non-traditional rehearsal dinner ideas that our guests have enjoyed that include:


  • Poolside BBQ
  • Patio Luncheon

  • Poolside BBQ – For couples that lean toward the casual side of the spectrum, our poolside BBQ is a favorite in the warmer weather. Perfect for early evenings, a rehearsal dinner by our club’s swimming pool is the perfect way to introduce friends and families in a warm, inviting environment.
  • Lunch on the Patio – Rehearsals aren’t always at night! Gather your family on our beautiful open air patio to enjoy a leisurely meal and cherish some time together before the activity of the upcoming wedding. Our outdoor patio is perfect for a casual meal and you may get to watch some good tennis too.

As you can see, Germantown Cricket Club offers a combination of rehearsal dinner rooms, spaces and services that few Philadelphia restaurants possess. Contact us today to learn more about hosting your wedding rehearsal dinner with us.
