Rehearsal Dinner Venue

While a couple’s wedding day is one of the most important days of their life, the rehearsal dinner is also a special occasion for the bride and groom to kick off the celebration with their closest family and friends. The Mackey House is a historical rehearsal dinner venue just 10 miles from Savannah that brings together traditional southern charm with modern finishes to create an elegant atmosphere. Inside, we offer spacious, luxurious rooms for ceremonies or receptions with a seated dinner. Outside, we have a 2,000+ square-foot deck with panoramic views, a dense garden with room for cocktails, and a peaceful lake that serves as a backdrop for the romantic setting.

When considering your rehearsal dinner venue, schedule an appointment to tour of The Mackey House. Our staff will also help with selecting food and drinks, decoration set-up and take-down, and other accommodations you’ll need the day of your celebration.
