Enjoy a Stunning Wedding, Wedding Reception or Rehearsal Dinner at one of San Diego's many romantic vineyards.[/caption] The Rehearsal Dinner is the precursor to the day you will remember for the rest of your life, your Wedding Day will be the first step to a lifetime of joy and happiness together. That's why the SAN DIEGAN has taken the time to extensively research these venues, so you can have the perfect venue for your Rehearsal Dinner. Many of these romantic San Diego restaurants will also make a great choice for your memorable wedding reception. Yes, great restaurants abound and many San Diego restaurants are in close proximity to chosen wedding site.  If you are getting married in Balboa Park, which so happens to be everybody's favorite venue, you'll find several excellent rehearsal dinner locations nearby. An obvious candidate is The Prado, which is a popular wedding site and the restaurant is in the heart of Balboa Park. But far superior is Mister A's, which sits atop the Fifth Avenue Financial Building and offers a breathtaking view of the city both at dusk and at night. Your wedding party will be swept away with this restaurant's elegant setting. It's always an excellent suggestion to dine at these suggested venues to appreciate each rehearsal dinner location's venues. Dining is both inside and on their magnificent rooftop  patio with its eye catching view of commercial airlines gliding by on their approach to the city. Still another one-of-a-kind venues is that of Old Town State Historic Park, which is home to almost a dozen festive Mexican Restaurants And those that specialize in weddings and wedding rehearsal are everything you'd expect a wedding rehearsal dinner venue or a wedding reception to be. With its historic setting in the heart of historic San Diego's beginning, this locale is hard to beat. So expect to be entertained while you dine by strolling mariach's as  the frosty margaritas flow like water. And of course the Mexican cuisine is second to none. And because this historic site offers no parking meters you'll find lots of parking available with two restaurants offering underground parking. Ole! Stunning to say the least is a wedding rehearsal at an oceanfront restaurant in La Jolla. Virtually every La Jolla Restaurant is a show stopper. Perhaps one up manship for a stunning place to dine would be to be seated for a breath taking view of the ocean at sunset. Great recommendations with sunsets served daily include Dukes, Donavan's Steakhouse George's at the Cove and of course the one and only Marine Restaurant, where at high tide the waves actually smash on the thick glass while you dine. Go there for cocktails and view the sweeping ocean view and you will be forever in love with this stunning restaurant. Another breathtaking destination ls Shelter Island, which was San Diego Bay's first of two man made aquatic wonderlands, which are filled with stunning bay view restaurants. Perhaps the most famous is the one and only Bali Hai Restaurant, It specializes in weddings and can accommodate almost any size wedding party with it's unique south seas theme. And the views of ships entering or leaving San Diego harbor will capture your imagination with wonderful possibilities. As for the cuisine, it's polynesian. And ho hasn't dined in or enjoyed the musical venues offered at a Humphrey's Concert On the venue? If for some reason you have missed it, don't miss having a Sunday Brunch or dinner here to glimpse at this stunning location for your wedding, rehearsal dinner and or wedding reception. It's second to none. And memorable weddings is one of their specialties. So with its view of yachts moored at the multiple marinas, the view will take your breath away. And perhaps the grand daddy of them all is to have your rehearsal dinner or wedding reception at the world renowned San Diego Yacht Club. While it is a private club, they do offer these events. It offers the same awesome venue that Humphrey's On The Bay Offers is a stunning nautical setting. And any recommendation would be amiss if your special event did not include a visit to the world famous Hotel Del Coronado. This stunning turn of the century showplace has been the scene of royal weddings and special occasions since 1888. Some guests prefer to be married on the beach in front of the hotel and then enjoy a one of a kind reception fit for royalty. And as you might guess there are numerous other bay front venues that will knock your socks off. One is Peohe's Restaurant overlooking downtown San Diego and the other is just next door Il Fornaio Restaurant offering mouthwatering Italian cuisine is a romantic setting second to none. Both of these venues sit side by side at the Ferry Land Market Place at the water's edge overlooking downtown San Diego. And at sunset your guests will see the city shimmer in the sunset as the sun reflects on the windows of the many skyscrapers. Then as night falls they will see the city light up like a Christmas tree. While there are stunning wedding, wedding reception and rehearsal dinner venues not mention in this introduction from the ocean to San Diego's Borrego Desert all of these recommendations are seriously challenged by having your special event on a harbor cruise on the Hornblower Cruise and Events, which specializes in special events. It offers the same stunning views that both Peohe's and Ill Fornaio offer except that it cruised the entire bay from Shelter Island to Coronado and back. And for cuisine it is second to none. And when your guests step aboard, they are greeted with a smile as they are handed a sparkling glass of champagne. Now that's class! So for your special celebration, you should definitely pull out all of the stops and celebrate your event like royalty. Presented here are over 500 personally researched venues.

So virtually every roadblock to a smooth running event has already been taken care of.
