If you are hav­ing the wed­ding cer­e­mony at the 173 Car­lyle House, you can even rehearse at our beau­ti­ful facil­ity before head­ing even if you chose to have the rehearsal din­ner else­where. There is a great selec­tion of nearby hotel facil­i­ties as well that your Per­sonal Wed­ding Plan­ner™ will be happy to advise you about. Your out-of-town guests will be set!
