Creative Cuisines caters rehearsal dinners at many locations in the Williamsburg area for up to 100 people. We are be able to host rehearsal dinners for up to 50 guests at our location at 1300 Garrison Drive. Menus included here are some of our favorites, but the possibilities are limitless. We will be happy to create a menu just for your dinner, based on the bride and groom’s ideas, the time of year, the number of guests, and the budget. We urge you to wait until the wedding menu has been finalized before making your decision. We know you would not want to serve the same foods that the couple has chosen for the reception.
Menu prices are based on a minimum of 30 guests. For parties fewer than 30, a surcharge may apply.
Several beverage plans are available, depending on whether you prefer a full open bar or wine service only. We will be happy to create a plan suited to your preferences. You may also provide your own alcoholic beverages and have us provide the mixers and bartenders. We have an annual ABC license that allows us to serve alcoholic beverages anywhere in the state. Our fees include the use of our license.
Tax & Gratuities
Add 11% to the menu price to cover local and state sales taxes. The service charge will vary depending upon such factors as the number of tables and the duration of the party. The average staffing charge is 18% to 22%. Our Staff are all professionals with at least 5 years experience and enjoy taking care of your guests.
A deposit of $300.00 and a signed contract will guarantee our services. This sum is not refundable but is applied to the final bill. A further deposit is required two weeks prior to the dinner and payment in full is expected at the conclusion of the evening. We do accept checks as a form of payment but, sorry, no credit cards.
Final Guest Count
Your final guest count is due no later than Monday morning prior to your rehearsal dinner. A change in the number after that date may result in a surcharge.
Decorations and Musical Entertainment
Flower arrangements and other decorations are a matter of individual choice. We will be happy to recommend local florists.
We can suggest several excellent local musicians who can provide live background music. Many clients prefer to bring in a portable sound system with their favorite CDs or an iPod. Should you wish to show family photos of the bride and groom, slide show presentations work the best on a laptop computer. At 1300 Garrison we have ability to offer a wide variety of music. With our Bose sound system we are able to connect to the internet by means of several platforms giving us the ability to provide your taste in music for either back round or something to dance to.
Just ask! We’re here to make the evening special.
Seasonal Menu Variations
We serve real food, prepared from fresh ingredients. Sometimes we suggest substitutions of menu items based on seasonal availability of ingredients.
